View  Gandhi My Father Movie StillsThis Friday will see the release of Anil Kapoor's Akshaye Khanna starrer, GANDHI MY FATHER and Anubhav Sinha's Ajay, Zayed, Riteish , Esha, Shamita and Diya starrer, CASH. Though it had to be postponed by a week, due to unavoidable circumstances, CASH, with 100 additional prints (making it a total of 800), is expected to take a flying start and is likely to be the first choice as compared to the brilliantly made GANDHI MY FATHER. Unfortunate but true, especially because Anil had decided on the release date of August 3, months in advance, after assuring that no major movie was slated to release with it.

One cannot ignore another August 3 release! Yes, we are referring to the colorized version of BR Chopra's 1957 classic, the Dilip Kumar, Vyjayantimala and late Ajit starrer, NAYA DAUR. The movie may not be able repeat the magic of the colorized MUGHAL-E-AZAM (2004), but will definitely find its audiences. And nostalgia will be a big reason for that!
