Distributors and producers are now very concerned about the dates that they release their movies because they want to make sure that they get good opening at the box office that allows them to earn the money they have invested in the films. Recently, we have seen that Salman Khan starrer Bodyguard went against the typical Friday release trend and producers decided to release it on Eid and results are very much in the favor of the distributors as Bodyguard managed to break all past collection records. Now, other producers and distributors are trying the same to make profit.
Karan Johar has recently announced that he will be releasing the movie on January 26, 2012 instead of January 13 which was the earlier date. This is because this is one of the big movies that will be launched under Dharma Productions and Karan Johar knows that releasing the movie on Republic Day will definitely boost the ticket sales at the window because it’s a National holiday in India. The producer tweeted that Agneepath is now releasing on the 26 of Jan 2012.
However, it seems that all the movies releasing on Republic Day might get split business because there are many more movies coming up on the same date. Karan Johar might feel that he has the best star cast in the film and the movie is already been hyped. However, on the same day there are two big movies coming up. The first one is Tezz which is produced by Venus Films and it has Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut and Sameera Reddy. On the other hand, Dibakar Banerjee is releasing Shanghai which stars Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi and Kalki Koechlin. It looks like Karan Johar is going to have a tough competition at the box office this Republic Day.
