Dil Junglee postponed to 9th March

Ever since Sanjay Leela Bhansali decided to release his period drama Padmaavat on January 25, Bollywood has seen countless reshuffles in the release dates of several movies. The latest film to shift its release is Dil Junglee.

Initially scheduled to hit the silver screen on 16th February, the Taapsee Pannu and Saqib Saleem starrer romantic comedy will now release on 9th March. Earlier, Dil Junglee was clashing with Neeraj Pandey’s forthcoming film Aiyaari which is also releasing on 16th February.

Directed by Aleya Sen, Dil Junglee also features Abhilash Thapliyal in a pivotal role. Whether the makers have shifted the film to avoid the clash with Aiyaary or there is some other reason behind it, is still to be known.

With Dil Junglee moving out of the frame, the Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Aiyaary will be the solo release on February 16.
