The decision to postpone Sajid Nadiadwala's ANJAANA ANJAANI had come in for a lot of criticism from quite a few segments of the industry and especially from those who got affected directly or indirectly by this sudden shift, leading to more reshuffling of upcoming films.
For the few who are not aware, Ranbir-Priyanka's ANJAANA ANJAANI was supposed to hit the theaters last Friday that is, 24th September. However a last minute decision to postpone the film due to the Ayodhya court verdict had the trade and distribution circle in turmoil. To add insult to the injury this decision came to notts as the Ayodhya verdict was itself delayed!
The lead actor of ANJAANA ANJAANI, Bollywood's newest superstar Ranbir Kapoor, who in a way was one of the decision makers, has a different take on the subject. The actor feels that the decision to postpone the film was right as he did not feel comfortable on releasing his film when the country was going through so much tension and uncertainty over the verdict. Ranbir says in an interview that a film is never above the country as for him country comes first and everything else later and the happiness and safety of its people should be of prime concern for all the stars and not just him.
Good to hear such profound thoughts from the latest superstar!
