Sushant Singh Rajput’s Raabta was supposed to clash with Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 on 10 February 2017 i.e. Valentine’s day weekend.
However, in an exclusive interaction with Catch, Rajput revealed that the two films are not clashing and the new release date of Raabta will be announced soon.
“No. It is not clashing with Jolly LLB. These are just rumours. People just tend to assume things,” said Sushant.
The ‘Kai Po Che’ star also said that clashes harm the box office collections and that the filmmakers should not try to sabotage other film’s business. “Box office clashes are all about intent. If filmmakers come together instead of going against each other when their film is clashing, they can do more business.”
Jolly LLB 2 is an upcoming courtroom comedy-drama film directed by Subhash Kapoor and starring Akshay Kumar and Huma Qureshi, with special appearances of Saurabh Shukla- who would be seen in a special appearance in the sequel alongside Arshad Warsi. Annu Kapoor will be the rival lawyer against Akshay Kumar in the film. The film is scheduled to release on 10 February 2017.
