Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi was slated to release on 6th Jan 2022, and SS Rajamouli’s RRR will release on 7th Jan 2022. Both the films were all set to clash at the box office.
However, the clash has been averted and Gangubai Kathiawadi has been postponed to 8th Feb 2022. But, it is said that SLB was not ready to change the release date, however the co-producer of the film, Jayantilal Gada started putting pressure on him.
A source told the portal, “Gada felt that two big films on the same Friday would harm both films. Besides RRR had two major actors in common, namely Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn.”
“Alia personally requested Bhansali to avert the clash. She didn’t want both her films to release on the same day. That’s when Bhansali decided to reconsider his earlier decision to not budge from January 6 at any cost,” added the source.
