LIFE PARTNER was one of the first films this year to have blocked 1st May as its date of arrival. This Abbas-Mustan production was all set to release on this date before producers v/s multiplexes strike proved to be a spanner in the plan. No wonder, Tusshar Kapoor, the leading man in the film, is mighty disappointed that 1st May release is out of question now. Riding high on the success of GOLMAAL RETURNS, he is also unhappy about the postponement of his film because traditionally the month of May has proven to be lucky for him throughout his career.
''Call it superstition but I am just stating facts. MUJHE KUCH KEHNA HAI, KYA KOOL HAI HUM and SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA were all released in the month of May and we all are aware about their box office results. I was eagerly waiting for LIFE PARTNER to arrive around the same time as well'', says Tusshar who has seen a steady escalation in his career over the years gone by.
He is guarded though about the release of LIFE PARTNER which could now see a July arrival. ''July should be good as well but then there are so many other films too that would all come in a heap in June/July. In any case, you can't think much around such problems. There are weeks when multiple films arrive while there others when even a solo release doesn't work. Ultimately, a film is as big as its script.''
He further goes on to philosophize. ''Har film ka ek naseeb hota hai. If we look at LIFE PARTNER now or any other film for that matter which is ready, we are not even in a position to decide upon the final release date. It's a wait and watch situation for now.''
