Bollywood will heave a sigh of relief as the wait for the Ayodhya verdict seems to be finally over. Allahabad high court's Lucknow bench is expected to deliver its judgment today starting at 3.30 pm.
Earlier, the verdict was to be announced on 24th September, the day when Ranbir-Priyanka starrer ANJAANA ANJAANI was scheduled to release. But due to the verdict the release date of ANJAANA ANJAANI along with numerous other films had to be postponed. However, after the shift in the release dates the Supreme Court deferred the verdict further.
Now, ANJAANA ANJAANI is releasing with three other films - Rajnikanth-Aishwarya's mega budget film ENTHIRAN - THE ROBOT, laugh riot KHICHDI - THE MOVIE and BENNY AND BABLOO on October 1. Even Priyadarshan's action extravaganza, the Ajay Devgn-Akshaye Khanna starrer AAKROSH, which was supposed to release on October 1, is pushed ahead. And now it's all set to release on October 15.
Post DABANGG there was not a single release, which hugely affected Bollywood business. Now the fate of the above films could hugely depend on the verdict.
Let's hope the verdict not only brings peace but also set the country in festivity mood once again and with that also set the Bollywood cash registers ringing.
