The decision to reschedule the release of PAGE 3 to January end has upset music director and C.E.O. of Virgin Records, Shameer Tandon
, who feels that the new release date will indirectly impact the music sales of the film. "The music sales had just begun to pick up and I was planning to intensify the music promos further. But we were compelled to cut down on the promos with the release date being postponed. The music promotion is definitely bound to suffer in the process," says a rather disheartened Tandon, who feels that it is very difficult to have a planned line of action in the chaotic Hindi film industry. "Considering the disorganized and unpredictable style of working of a majority of producers, it is difficult to stick to action plans and projected results," he adds.
Meanwhile one will have to wait and watch whether PAGE 3 does figure among the priority list of the many pending films that Sahara One has lined up for release in 2005. One of them is Tanuja Chandra's FILM STAR, which is still awaiting release though Tanuja has finished completing the shooting of her next film, HOPE AND A LITTLE SUGAR.
