Actress Nargis Fakhri’s Amavas, which was to release on January 11, will now hit the screens on February 1. The delay is due to visual effects and post-production related work. The film’s director, Bhushan Patel, said in a statement, “We are trying to achieve top-class VFX and that is little time-consuming. We do not want to release the film haphazardly and want to ensure that the end product is up to the mark.”
However, with this new release date, Amavas will clash with Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor’s first collaboration, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga. The film that also stars Rajkummar Rao in the lead role made headlines for its interesting and brave storyline. Sonam plays a lesbian in the film and it’s quite a brave move on the actress’ part.
While Amavas is a horror film, ELKDTAL revolves around a taboo subject. We now wait to see which film will win the box office race and score high.
