Mumbai: Republic Day weekend of 2019 is expected to be one of the biggest events for Bollywood as 4 films are releasing during this period. The ventures which are locking horns are Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30, Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Emraan Hashmi’s Cheat India and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Thackrey. While everyone related to these films are not ready to shift the release as they want to take the advantage of the national holiday weekend. But it seems that, the makers of Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 have decided to avoid this clash.
Hrithik’s film Super 30 and Kangana starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi are slated to release on 25 January. Latest reports are anything to go by, then Hrithik might prepone the release of his film by a week.
As per the report, “Since the makers are keen on a solo release, they have decided to advance the release by a week.” Super 30 is now expected to release on 18 January. Well, if it happens, it’ll be a good decision by the makers as it’ll help the film to get better collections at the box office. Talking about the film, it is directed by Vikas Bahl, who previously helmed Shaandaar and Queen. The film features television actress Mrunal Thakur opposite Hrithik Roshan.
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, on the other hand, is based on Rani Lakshmibai. Kangana plays the titular role in the film directed by Krish and jointly produced by Zee Studios, Kamal Jain and Nishant Pitti also stars Ankita Lokhand, Atul Kulkarni, model-turned-actor Nihar Pandya, Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles.
