The date of Sushant Singh Rajput on screen romance with Kriti Sanon in producer Dinesh Vijan's directorial debut RAABTA has been shifted from its initial plan to cash on Valentine’s Day weekend.
The movie was in buzz since its announcement and the interesting pairing of Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon kept the gossip mongers busy with repeated rumours of Sushant Singh Rajput having an affair with Kirti Sanon. Sushant Singh has denied the rumours again and again.
Said to be a love story with an interesting twist, RAABTA will now finally release on June 9, 2017.
Shot extensively in Budapest, Mauritius and Punjab, the movie is produced by Dinesh Vijan and Bhushan Kumar and presented by T-Series and Maddock films.
Though the reason for the shift is unknown, the June 9 2017 date is considered ‘safe’ considering the IPL commencing from April and running till the last week of May.
Though Akshay Kumar’s TOILET – EK PREM KATHA is poised to enjoy all the post IPL audience, RAABTA coming the week after TOILET – EK PREM KATHA with probably no competition still seems to be a safe bet.
