The Diwali and Eid weekend along with the Christmas week are considered the best period business wise by the producers and distributors for releasing their films. No wonder some of the biggest films have been released on the aforementioned occasions. With the first of the three bountiful period, the Eid weekend less than two months away the shifting and shuffling games have begun.
As per trade and distribution sources, from the three prestigious projects slated to release on 10th September, one has decided to move ahead. With Salman Khan's DABAANG and Arjun Rampal's WE ARE FAMILY staying put, producer Sohail Maklai, who had also planned to release his Sanjay Dutt starrer KNOCK OUT on the occasion of Eid has decided to postpone his film. As per Maklai, there was no sense in releasing the film amidst so much competition.
Though the actual release date for KNOCK OUT is still to be announced officially, our Delhi based distribution sources inform us that the film will now release on 1st October, to capitalize on the additional Gandhi Jayanti holiday.
