Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh’s joint venture Simmba will now release on 28th December
Well, the actors are surely enjoying a great inning but the producers. As per a recent report, both Simmba and Zero were expected to release during the last week of Christmas. But now they will release a week apart to avoid affecting box office collection. Anand L. Rai's Zero and Shetty's Simmba, both were supposed to hit the theaters on 21st December 2018.
Producer-director Rohit Shetty confirmed the news by admitting that a clash between Simmba and Zero will severely affect the Box Office collection. Rohit said, “I think one week is enough and there is no competition. Earlier we were planning to come on the same day, but then we went into a discussion.
"We decided not to come together because that would affect numbers. It was a mutual decision. If the film does well in the first week, it will go on", added the Golmal Again maker.
Hence, Sara Ali Khan and Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba's release date has been pushed a week ahead i.e., 28th December 2018.
When further asked about if he is interested in making a biopic on someone, Shetty said, "If I ever want to make a film on a personality, I would love to make a film on Maratha warrior Shivaji Maharaj. I can make it really well."
