Dedh Ishqiya, starring Madhuri Dixit, Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi, was originally scheduled to be released in this month and later, it was postponed to the first week of January 2014. But now, it might be postponed further as Arshad Warsi has two back-to-back releases in that month in addition to the start of the shoot of another film of his.
“Mr. Joe B Carvalho, which is produced by his long standing secretary Bhola, is arriving on 3rd January while as per the original plans, Vishal Bhardwaj produced Dedh Ishqiya arrives a week later, i.e. on January 10. Since Arshad can’t be expected to promote both films almost simultaneously, more so since he is also expected to kick-start the shooting of The Legend of Michael Mishra soon, possibility of Dedh Ishqiya being moved ahead has been discussed,” says an insider.
“In any case first the film was supposed to release this month and then it was pushed ahead to January. If at all the film is moved any further, it would have to be January end or February since it won’t be fighting Salman’s Jai Ho that arrives on January 24,” a trade source adds.
When asked about it, Arshad said “I spoke to folks at Shemaroo over the weekend and the film is coming on January 10, for sure. We are working out a plan so that once I am back from Coorg, where I am currently shooting for some songs for Mr. Joe B Carvalho, I could promote both the films simultaneously.”
So Madhuri’s fans have to wait a little longer for her comeback?
