‘Jagga Jasoos’ release date moved to May 12; to clash with two more biggies

Anurag Basu’s ‘Jagga Jasoos‘ starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif had finally announced its release date, and it was to be April 7, this year. By then, the movie had also been delayed for over an year. Naturally, it got all the Ran-Kat fans super excited, but looks like, the happiness was short lived for everyone.

The makers did not kickstart the promotional activities of the film, and everyone guessed that the movie might get delayed even more, eventually. And that’s exactly what happened. The release date of ‘Jagga Jasoos’ has been moved again, and the movie will hit the theatres on May 12. (Also Read: Sayani Gupta looks unrecognisable in her first look from ‘Jagga Jasoos’)

But let us tell you, the film will be in competition with two more big star films. The two films that have locked their dates for the same day is Yash Raj Film’s ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ featuring Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra and ‘Hindi Medium’ starring Irrfan Khan.

A source clarifies, “The producers are trying to sort it out among themselves and figure out a new date. While all the three films are of completely different genres, Ranbir is still a top star and his film clashing with Ayushmann and Irrfan, won’t be good for any film at the box-office.”

We wonder if the movie will now release on May 12, or get delayed even more.

Anyway, on work front, Ranbir is currently shooting for the Sanjay Dutt biopic, directed by Rajkumar Hirani. On the other hand, Katrina is shooting for ‘Tiger Zinda Hai‘ .
