Extensive international release for ‘Metro’

The schedule of release dates goes topsy-turvy the moment cricket matches and school/college examinations are announced. With the World Cup [cricket matches] slated from 13th March to 28th April, a number of films have decided to re-schedule the dates. Lets have a quick look at the changes this week More than five films were slated for release on 23rd February, but the list has narrowed down to HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD. and PROVOKED now. RED THE DARK SIDE has been shifted to 2nd March since the post-production work is pending. 2nd March is crowded with NISHABD, NEHLLE PE DEHLLA and RED THE DARK SIDE. While Adlabs is releasing NISHABD globally, they hold the Overseas distribution rights of RED. Meanwhile, P.N.C. informs me that JUST MARRIED might make it on either 2nd/9th March. NAMASTEY LONDON, which was confirmed for 9th March, has been shifted to 23rd March. Reason: Examinations, Vipul Shah states. Also slated for release on this Friday [23rd March] are Mira Nairs THE NAMESAKE and Deepa Mehtas WATER. Two debutantes will battle it out on 27th April: Actress Anjana Mumtazs son Ruslaan [MP3 MERA PEHLA PEHLA PYAAR] and Kamaal Amrohis grandson Mashoor [HUM LAAKH CHHUPAYEIN PYAAR MAGAR]. Sanjay Gupta will have three releases in three consecutive months -- SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA [May], WOODSTOCK VILLA [June] and DUS KAHANIYAAN [July]. Firoz A. Nadiadwala will also have two major releases this year -- FOOL AND FINAL [April; date isnt confirmed yet] and WELCOME [July]. I want to give a two-month gap between the two films, Firozbhai informs me. While on FOOL AND FINAL, 2007 seems to be a crucial year for Sunny Deol, with three releases back to back: FOOL AND FINAL [April], APNE [May] and KAAFILA [4th May]. Prior to these three films, theres BIG BROTHER on 23rd February/2nd March. UTV has decided to postpone the release of METRO to May. Initially slated for 6th April release, the film will arrive in May now. Since Shilpa Shetty is really big in U.K. now, we plan to give it an extensive international release. Plus, we are targeting the holiday period in Overseas, Siddharth Roy Kapur of UTV divulges. Adlabs has confirmed the release date of their multi-starrer CASH: Its 11th May.
