Madhur Bhandarkar’s Calendar Girls is surely not a film we would like to remember, but there’s a dialogue in the movie that was quite meaningful. The dialogue was, ‘Filmein toh kayi banti hai, lekin film asal mein woh hoti hai joh release hoti hai.’

Well, this dialogue reminds us of many movies that have been made or it has been in the making from the past many years, but it is yet to see the light of the day.

So, today let’s look at the list of films that have faced multiple delays in the past few years.


When we talk about movies that have faced multiple delays, Brahmastra has to be at the top of the list. The film was supposed to release on 15th August 2019. Later, the makers postponed it to Christmas 2019. Then it was announced that the movie will release in Summer 2020, and a few months ago, the makers announced that their film will hit the screens on 4th December 2020. However, due to the pandemic, the shooting of the film has been stalled, and now, it is said that the movie will release in June 2021.

Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar

Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar starring Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra was slated to release in 2018. But the movie was pushed multiple times and finally, the makers decided to release it in March this year. However, once again due to the pandemic, the release date of the film has been postponed.


Shoojit Sircar and Amitabh Bachchan have teamed up for films like Piku and Gulabo Sitabo. But before these films, the actor-director duo had collaborated for a movie titled Shoebite. The movie is completed but is yet to hit the big screens. A couple of years ago, Big B had also requested the producers of the film to release the movie.
