'Paheli' shifted ahead

Paheli continues to make news! The question uppermost on everyone's lips is, Will Paheli hit the screens on June 17? Or is the SRK starrer postponed to a latter date? If deferred, what is the new date? Well, here's the clear picture: Initially confirmed for June 17, the film has been postponed by one week and will now hit the marquee on June 24.

Conversely, the new date of Paheli has sent the subsequent releases for a toss. There's a strong possibility that the Salman starrer Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, which is slated for July 1 release, will be pushed further. Also, DUS, starring Sanju, Suniel, Abhishek and Zayed, might not make it on July 8.

Confirms Denis Selarka of Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision [the Mumbai distributors of the three biggies, Paheli, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya and Dus], “There has to be a sufficient gap between every big release. It's not right to place three biggies in three consecutive weeks,” he says.

With Paheli getting shifted to June 24, a number of films, besides the above-named ones, will be re-scheduled in the coming weeks. Watch this space!
