Director Sujoy Ghosh reunited with powerhouse performer Vidya Balan, yet again for this suspense thriller drama – titled Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh.
While the movie starring Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal, was scheduled to release on the 25th November this year, producer Jayantilal Gada of Pen India, decided to shift the date in order to avoid a clash at the box office with Mahesh Bhatt, a filmmaker he has shared a close association with over the years.
It was recently announced that Alia Bhatt starrer Dear Zindagi will hit theater screens on the 25th November and producers Jayantilal Gada and Mahesh Bhatt had a conversation about not releasing the two films together. The makers of Kahaani 2 then decided to shift the date of the suspense thriller drama to 2nd December.
Said Mahesh Bhatt, “I have known Jyantilal Gada for several years now and we are like family. Both Kahaani 2 and Dear Zindagi are unique films and deserve a solo release. And it will also help both films in the long run.”
When contacted Jayantilal Gada, he said, “Bhatt Sahab is associated with us for our leading TV shows; Udann and Naamkarann but more importantly he and Alia are like family to us. There can never be any competition within families, hence I have decided to release Kahaani2 – Durga Rani Singh on 2nd Dec.”
Presented by Jayantilal Gada, Produced by Kushal Kantilal Gada, Dhaval Jayantilal Gada & Aksshay Jayantilal Gada and Sujoy Ghosh, Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh, directed by Sujoy Ghosh is scheduled to release 2nd December 2016.
