Ever since BIILOO BARBER was announced earlier this year, there have been speculations galore around the month of its release. There were constant rumors floating around the release of the film and though there has been a constant pull and push around the final timeline, here is an exclusive bit of information which has just come in. As per reliable sources, 2008 is now out of question for BILLO BARBER and ultimately it is going to be January 2009 when the film would eventually arrive.

Is it Shah Rukh Khan's health problem which has resulted in the delay for the film? Or is it the December release of RAB NE BANA DI JODI which is causing Shah Rukh Khan to space out the two films?

"Not really", says a source on condition of anonymity, "Though the specific reason is yet to be nailed down, one of the major causes of worry is arrival of half a dozen biggies which are expected in the months of November and December. GOLMAAL RETURNS arrives in October end, November sees DOSTANA and YUVRAAJ while December already has three biggies - RAB NE BANA DI JODI, CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA and GHAJINI."

But with Shah Rukh Khan heading the film's cast, why the cause for worry?

"There isn't really a cause for worry but it always helps to arrive when there isn't too much of crowd", reasons the source, "And then one major factor which needs to be considered is that though BILLOO BARBER is a Khan film but it is not Shah Rukh's, it is Irrfan's! Now it won't be fair to pitch a film with Irrfan Khan in lead amidst all the mainstream biggies."

With DILLI 6 being the only confirmed biggie in the month of January 2009, it pretty much seems like a wise move!
