It was recently reported that the shoot of Phantom Films and Balaji's LOOTERA starring Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh had been delayed to next year mid-February due to Ranveer hurting his back while shooting. Resultantly, it would take some time to procure the dates of its principal actor.
Vikramaditya Motwane, who was Sanjay Leela Bhansali's assistant director on HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM and DEVDAS, and directed the highly acclaimed UDAAN, has shown his mentor that it's payback time. His LOOTERA was being planned for a mid-February release, but now has been pushed to 29 March 2013, as there was an overlap of dates for leading man Ranveer Singh.
Ranveer who will be shooting with Kareena for Bhansali's RAM LEELA will be unavailable to promote LOOTERA in January and February. Instead of postponing Bhansali's schedule, Vikram and the film's producers decided to go for 29th March release instead.
Earlier because of heavy snowfall and also huge numbers of crowds, the shoot had been delayed.
With LOOTERA turning into an Easter release, it has become one of the most awaited films. Trade pundits say that like this year's Easter release HOUSEFULL 2, LOOTERA too has the capability of making it huge.
LOOTERA is a classic period romantic thriller. Amit Trivedi is composing the music. The film marks the first-time pairing of Ranveer and Sonakshi, the industry's hottest newcomers after BAND BAAJA BAARAAT and DABANGG respectively.
