Akahay’s Flicks Delayed Patiala House

Akshay Kumar starrer, Patiala House has been delayed because of Akshay Kumar. I am not joking, that’s true that filmmaker, Nikhil Advani, do not want his upcoming flick, Patiala House to clash with Akshay’s two other films, Tees Maar Khan and Action Replayy.

Non-comedy flick Patiala House is queue to release with Akshay starrer two comedy films, so director Nikhil Advani keeping Akshay’s suggestion in mind that comedies always for him at the box-office, shifted its release date. Patiala House’s release has been pushed forward not once but twice, to accommodate Action Replayy in November (19) and make way for Tees Maar Khan in December (24). Advani, who is currently frantically trying to edit the film, admits he wants no overlapping with Kumar’s comic films. He says,

“Patiala House is not a comedy. That will be made clear when my first promo is released on December 24, the day Akshay’s Tees Maar Khan releases. And yes I don’t want any overlapping with Akshay’s other films.”

“Patiala House was spans three generations. We also had to deal with politics in cricket. That slowed down the film.”

Advani has a reputation for lengthy films — Salaam-e-Ishq lasted nearly four hours. He is struggling to stick to two hour-thirty-minutes with Patiala House.

“It’s bound to occupy a larger space than Akshay’s comedies. His fans will have to bear with that.”
