From last few years we have been observing IPL has hit Bollywood hard. Considering IPL as a threat, filmmakers either postponed/preponed their film or preferred not to release in that interim. Not only small films even the big budgeted or the big starcast or the heavily anticipated films opted to stay away from IPL. However not any more. As the following year i.e. 2012 will see maximum biggies arriving during IPL season. It seems the filmmakers have now overcome the fear of IPL. Following is the list of films which will/shall release in the midst of IPL 2012.

It is believed that Emraan feels IPL is lucky for him and this time too it will fetch him good results. JANNAT 2 would now release right in the middle of IPL i.e. on 27th April.

HOUSEFULL 2: Producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director Sajid Khan's much touted sequel of the comic caper HOUSEFULL, HOUSEFULL 2, which was scheduled to release post IPL i.e. 1st June 2012, will now arrive on 5th April 2012, the time when IPL goes underway. Nevertheless, the decision to prepone the release came in the wake of YRF's decision to release their Salman Khan-starrer EK THA TIGER on 1st June.
