After a couple of false starts, THE PRESIDENT IS COMING has finally been confirmed for 9th January release. The film was supposed to arrive on 28th November but the release was put on hold following the Mumbai terror attack. While OYE LUCKY LUCKY OYE and SORRY BHAI continued with their release (and suffered due to near to negligible interest of cine-goers in walking into theaters with the volatile situation that the country was facing), producer Rohan Sippy and director Kunaal Roy Kapur rightly decided to push the film to a later date.

"There was no reason why we should have brought the film then. We are happy that we pushed the film's release and now it will arrive on 9th January, 2009, a week before my other film CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA", smiles Rohan Sippy as he keeps himself busy supervising the last moment nitty-gritty of as many as two films of his.

Isn't it tough managing work on THE PRESIDENT IS COMING as well as CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA?

"Well, it's part of the business. One has to be prepared for such hassles. It's fun nevertheless. Both the films are set in a different scale, mood, budget and audience. I have good teams working with me to manage the two releases", says Rohan confidently.

Kunaal Roy Kapur, the director of the film too affirms that 9th January release of THE PRESIDENT IS COMING is the right timing. He also understands that the market for this Konkona Sen starrer is niche. "Since the film has been adapted from a play and made in English, it is niche in any case. I am happy to see it arriving at theaters in a few days from now", he says.

Also starring Shernaz Patel with youngsters like Ira Dubey, Vivek Gomber, Satchit Puranik, Namit Das, Anand Tiwari and Shivani Tanksale, the film would be competing with HORN OK PLEASSSS, KAASH... MERE HOTE and BAD LUCK GOVIND, all of which release on the same day i.e. 9th January.
