Saif Ali Khan’s Laal Kaptaan Release Postponed To Avoid Clash With Nitesh Tiwari’s Chhichhore
Loads of shuffling has happened in terms of release dates of movies. To begin with, Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor's Saaho which was scheduled to release on August 15, has been pushed ahead to August 30 just avoid clash with Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal and John Abraham's Batla House. This further alarmed the makers of Chhichhore to make a shift, this Nitesh Tiwari directorial which was set to release on August 30, will now mostly release on September 6 which means it will clash with Aanand L Rai’s Laal Kaptaan.

After being in pipeline for almost 2 years, Navdeep Singh's Laal Kaptaan was scheduled to release on September 6. But, the makers have decided to push ahead the film’s release. A Pinkvilla report states, "Suddenly, there's been a lot of rejig in the dates. Especially around August-September. Initially, Saaho was supposed to release on Independence Day along with Mission Mangal and Batla House. But now, it's been moved to August 30. That also has caused another shift. Nitesh Tiwari's Chhichhore will now hit screens mostly on September 6 and if that happens, Aanand L Rai won't clash with that project for sure at the box office. They won't get enough screens to release Lal Kaptaan."

"A little bit of patchwork is left to be shot. They realised it while on the edit table. But Saif is currently in London shooting for another film Jawaani Jaaneman. He returns to the city only around mid-August post which they will complete filming those portions again. The film has shaped up really well and is being touted as one of Saif's finest performances till date. That's why the makers are willing to delay it a bit but not compromise on the quality." The new release date is yet to be announced.

Saif's first look of naga sadhu created quite a buzz in the e-world. Currently, viewers are eagerly waiting to binge-watch his upcoming web show, Sacred Games 2 on the digital platform.
