Everybody is aware of the controversies around Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut who were at loggerheads, sorry, still are at loggerheads, owing to their unconfirmed past. The latter is still often seen taking jibes at Hrithik, where he decides to gracefully shut them down with his silence. We earlier informed you that the makers of Mental Hai Kya starring Kangana have postponed its release date to July 26, the date when Hrithik’s Super 30 was already scheduled to release.
For the uninitiated, Mental Hai Kya was earlier scheduled for a March release but since the movie’s patchwork was left, the makers decided to shift it to June 21, which then would have clashed with Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani starrer Kabir Singh. Now, to avoid that clash, the producers have further postponed the release date to July 26.
Super 30 was earlier supposed to open to theatres on January 26 but didn’t, because that’s when Kangana’s debut directorial Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi too was opening to the public. It was then announced to be released on July 26. Hrithik had shared the news with a Tweet which read,
“Happy to announce that #Super30 is headed for release on July 26, 2019. बहुत जल्द समय बदलने वाला है! @RelianceEnt @NGEMovies @mrunal0801 @TheAmitSadh @nandishsandhu @super30film”
After all this trouble, it is clear that the clash still stands, even if it is with another of her film. Now, after this news came out, many reports suggested that this box office clash is nothing but a purposeful tactic to cash in on the hugely hyped controversies. To come clear of that, the Mental Hai Kya makers have given an official statement in order to keep the negative controversies at bay. Here’s what they said:
“A lot is being reported about Mental Hai Kya clashing with another film at the box office on 26th July.
The shift in the release date is a decision taken after recommendations from the distributors, trade analysts and a top research team, keeping in mind the other releases a week before and after this date.
We have thus been advised to shift the release of our movie to 26th July, purely for business prospects.
On knowing that there is already a movie scheduled for a release on that date, we did everything in our purview to ensure the other parties that there will be no mudslinging and it will be a dignified release. We stand by assuring that to all other parties.
This is a call taken by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji telefilms considering better prospects for the movie at the box office.
Balaji Telefilms’ condemn the reports being circulated and would like to state that Mental Hai Kya will be releasing on 26th July to ensure better business growth and prospect for the film.”
