Release of Riteish Deshmukh- Pulkit Samrat starrer Bangistan postponed

Just a couple of days back, we had reported that Excel Entertainment’s forthcoming film Bangistan that features Riteish Deshmukh and Pulkit Samrat in lead roles was banned in Pakistan. Now we hear that the film which was slated to hit screens later this month on July 31, has been postponed. In fact the film will now release on August 7.


Commenting on the delay in releasing the film, producer Ritesh Sidhwani stated that since the current releases Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Bahubali that hit screens two and three weeks back continue to rule the box office, releasing Bangistan at a later date would be more beneficial for the film. Simultaneously, Riteish Deshmukh also confirmed the same on twitter saying, “Bangistan Now Releases On 7th August”.


Directed by Karan Anshuman, Bangistan also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Chandan Roy Sanyal. The film is about two suicide bombers, Hafeez Bin Ali/ Ishwarchand Sharma (Riteish) and Allah Rakha Khan/ Praveen Chaturvedi (Pulkit), who are brainwashed into executing a suicide mission, however the two soon realize the futility of the mission and try to avert it.
