Earlier scheduled to release on 9th February, Anushka Sharma’s forthcoming film Pari will now hit screens on 2nd March 2018. The makers decided to shift their film’s release date to avoid the box office clash with Neeraj Pandey’s upcoming film Aiyaary.
Starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee in principal roles, Aiyaari was initially slated to come out on 26th January, but the makers moved their film to 9th February as soon as Padmavat team decided to release their period film on 25th January.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat had missed its original release date of 1st December due to a series of protests by some fringe groups. But after getting a UA certificate from the Censor Board Of Film Certification, the film locked 25th January 2018 as its new release date, promoting many makers to reschedule their movies, with Pari being one of them. The film will now clash with Vishal Pandya’s Hate Story 4, which stars Urvashi Rautela and Karan Wahi.
Directed by Prosit Roy, Pari also stars Parambrata Chatterjee and Rajat Kapoor in lead roles. The film is co-produced by Anushka Sharma’s Clean Slate Films and Prernaa Arora’s KriArj Entertainment.
