Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol starrer Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, was earlier scheduled to release on 15th August, but now has been pushed to 31st August.
Had it been 15th August, the film would have clashed with Akshay Kumar starrer Gold and John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate. The three-movie clash has thus been avoided.
In an official statement, Sunny Deol said, “Since Aug 15th has two patriotic films Gold and Satyameva Jayate which are topical for the day and on 24th we have our family friends Anil Sharma’s son being launched who has our blessings. Our film is a wholesome family entertainer; hence, we have decided to release our film Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se two weeks later on 31st August 2018.”
But even on 31st August, Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se isn’t getting a solo release. Shraddha Kapoor – Rajkummar Rao’s horror comedy Stree and Ayushmann Khurrana‘s Andhadhun are also releasing on 31st August 2018. Interestingly, as of now, Shahid Kapoor – Shraddha Kapoor’s film Batti Gul Meter Chalu is also scheduled for August 31 release. So much traffic jam of films on the said date, oops!
