The release date for ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA has been pushed to July 15 from June 24, which was announced at the beginning of the calendar year. Chances are that Zoya Akhtar's second movie as director could be held up for a while more to ensure that it's release date coincides with the release date of DIL CHAHTA HAI, August 10.

The Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol starrer is supposedly an extension of the story of DIL CHAHTA HAI (2001), which had Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna playing the leads. However producer Ritesh Sidhwani asserts that the film is neither an extension nor will it be pushed further down from July 15.

Says Ritesh, "It's supposed to be a summer release, so how can we bring it on the same date as DIL CHAHTA HAI, which is August 10? In any case, it's a celebratory film for Farhan (Akhtar) and me because our association completes a decade this August," he says. "Our first production was a film about friends, and our first release in our 10th year is also about friends. By the time the year ends, we'll have produced a dozen films together."

Sidhwani attributes the rescheduled release date to their film's editor, Chandan Arora's illness. The team thought he would recuperate with a few weeks' rest. But Chandan's doctor insisted on surgery. "We had a deadline. So, we proceeded with another editor," he adds.

Anand Subaya, who is working on DON 2, was roped in and editing started from scratch. "We didn't force him to follow someone else's work. He had to look at the complete footage before he started editing the film which took some time. Thankfully, the wait is nearly over now," said Ritesh before signing off.
