Mumbai, July 25 (IANS) As “Baahubali – The Beginning” and “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” continue to garner enormous response at the box office, actor Riteish Deshmukh says it’s the “right call by the producers” to postpone the release date of his forthcoming comedy “Bangistan” to August 7, as the film “should get a fair chance”.
“The fact is that ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ are doing great business at the box office. I think it was the right call by the producers. A film should get a fair chance. If it is better for the film, then why not? I feel that by postponing the film by one week, probably we’ll have a better showcasing,” Riteish said at a promotional event to launch an exclusive food store for the film here.
While S.S. Rajamouli’s magnum opus “Baahubali – The Beginning” has already broken several records at the box office, Salman Khan’s “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” too collected Rs.197.77 crore in just eight days since its release on July 17 and is expected to cross the Rs.200 crore mark on Saturday.
Directed by Karan Anshuman, “Bangistan”, which was mostly shot in Poland and Ladakh, is about two suicide bombers, Hafeez Bin Ali Ishwarchand Sharma (Riteish) and Allah Rakha Khan Praveen Chaturvedi (Pulkit), who have been brainwashed into an explosive mission but eventually realise the death wish is futile exercise.
