The makers of the forthcoming sports biopic Soorma, which features Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu in pivotal roles, have moved its release date from June 29 to July 13 to avoid the box-office clash with filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani’s next Sanju, starring Ranbir Kapoor in the role of Bollywood superstar Sanjay Dutt.

The Shaad Ali directorial Soorma will now lock horns with Prernaa Arora and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s much-anticipated film, Fanne Khan, which is headlined by Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Directed by Atul Manjrekar, Fanne Khan was earlier scheduled to release alongside Salman Khan’s Race 3. However, the makers decided to shift their date to July 13 to save their film from the clash with Race 3.

With Soorma and Fanne Khan now set to release on the same date, a big box-office battle cannot be ruled out. Both films are highly awaited by film enthusiasts as they star some of the amazing actors in them. So, it will be interesting to see which film races ahead in terms of collections at the cash counter.
