Guess Who? - This Bollywood big ticket film to reschedule its release date

Can you guess which Bollywood film's delay are we talking about?

This movie has been in the news - both good and bad - since the time it was announced almost a year back. Directed by one of the most bankable filmmakers of Bollywood, the movie kept the media buzzing with reports about its casting, its release date and the prep its lead actors are making for the film!

With a stellar cast, the film has indeed been one of the most awaited. And though stories of various roadblocks hitting the movie made its way to the press, the crew has been unaffected, in terms of its filming and the deadline.
 
However, reliable sources tell us that this Bollywood movie will have a tough time keeping its date with the theatres, thanks to the delay it is going through, due to numerous reasons. The shoot of the mammoth film is underway and efforts are being made to speed up the process despite having a perfectionist director. The actors are asked to take lesser breaks and are told to give their best so that minimal takes are shot and the crew is instructed to not waste time in between shots, only to hurry up the process. But our source explains to us that despite all of this, the flick will not be able to wrap its shoot.
 
While the film's extended crew is kept in the dark about the delay in its release, the close associates of the director, its lead actors and the top officials from the production house know the exact status of the film and the difficulty in matching to its current schedule. Hence a plan B is being made for its release, the announcement of which will only be made closer to the current release date. This is the director's master plan to keep the buzz about the film positive. Also, discussions around the new release date are being worked out and a little birdie has told us that the movie has been shifted ahead by six months.
 
Though being tight-lipped about the change in the plan might help the crew for sometime, eventually they will have to announce, the change in the release date to keep the curiosity of the fans at bay!
 
Any guesses as to whom we are talking about?

Insurance may only cover for certain circumstances and then takes ages to receive

JAGGA JASOOS

Jaga jasoos. So no more kat this year. thank God. Feelingb ad for anurag

this sucks. Been a while since I saw a good movie form Ranveer or DP. Come to think of it, they haven't had that many releases since Bajirao.

padamavati toh gayo..

Jagga Jasos toh gayo uski fikar karo. post pv

Curious to know if filmmakers in India can take any insurance for property like sets, costumes, etc.? If not vandalism, then accidents can happen too.

The film is cursed. Bhansali was going for third time lucky with Ranveer and Deepika. He took panauti Shahid which was a big mistake. A hated Ratan Singh, a loved Khijli and a terrible insult to history. This film will ruin Bhansali. The cast can't bring 100cr profit to the film at all. He should have gone back to his original stalwarts Salman or SRK if he wanted such a mammoth film. Foolish man. The only man who could make this movie a money spinner is Salman Khan, instead Bhansali ruined his friendship with him.

padmavati. no more deepika this year either...kinda relieved about that BUT i feel bad for sanjay!

Padmavati! Ranveer is basically the only one who shot anything so far. Shahid & deepika had one song and a small schedule

This is sad. The budget was already 170-180 crores and now the recreating of costumes and jewellery will cost potentially 5 crore plus and now the delay is going to costume them. How will they even have a chance of recovering the costs if they release it 6 month s after November which is May. Unless they get a good date and a free date, they are setting themselves upto fail.

I wonder if they had insurance to cover the items that were destroyed? We've all seen the movies about productions that made money not opening. That doesn't justify in any way the horrible loss and criminal misbehavior of the people who did this. I'm just suggesting it might not be as bad as it sounds.

Obviously Padmavati because the costumes that were destroyed itself took 3 months to make and would need even more time to recreate now. Also, barely have the cast been shooting these past few weeks, Ranveer did some short schedule, shahid is doing some travelling and deepika has been travelling all over. But I don't get why they are planning to release it 6 months after November not sooner? And if they are planning to keep the postponing a secret, they are highly stupid. Another A list s project will easily get it.

Shahid jinxed Padmavati too! Poor DP...no release this year too

Is it Padmavati or Sanjay Dutt biopic?

Padmavati of course . There's no way SLB will be able to reshoot so quickly after the sets & costumes were destroyed . And the budget must have shot up too.

Which means no release for deepika this year as well!

Bhansali should hav cast Rani as Padmavati!!

Jagga Jasoos it is....

Padmavati

This is very obviously Padamavati. I would've been very surprised if it releasd on time after all the damage the hooligans caused to the sets and the clothes. Patiently waiting regardless.

Padmavati...

Padmavati

Padmavati.

Padmavatiii !
