The producers had originally planned to release Shanghai (directed by Dibakar Bannerjee) on Republic Day, but when it was announced that Agneepath would be released that day, the producers decided to hold back. However, now there’s a bigger problem – they can’t seem to find a suitable release date!
The film’s shooting has been completed, but there are other things holding the film back. Emraan Hashmi has releases in May (Jannat 2) and August (Raaz 3), so the producers will need to keep that in mind. However, the months in between will be out of the question since Emraan won’t be able to promote three films back-to-back. Abhay Deol, on the other hand, is available since has hasn’t taken too much on his plate – now the director and producers will just have to work around Emraan’s schedule.
