Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation has highly affected everyone and Bollywood is no exception. In fact most of the producers are planning to shift the release date as they don’t want demonetisation to affect the business of their film. After erotic crime thriller Wajah Tum Ho had to push their release date, now Priyanka Chopra has postponed her first Punjabi film Sarvann. The film was slated to release on December 7, but now it has been postponed to January 2017. Yes!
Priyanka who is in Hollywood busy shooting for her thriller series Quantico 2 is also producing regional films under her production house Purple Pebble Pictures and Sarvann her first Punjabi film as a producer. PC’s mom Madhu Chopra is handling the entire post production work in India. As per reports in an entertainment portal, “The makers of the film had a joint meeting where they have come to a conclusion to shift the release date by a month due to the current economic challenges faced by all”.
Priyanka’s mom Madhu Chopra has even given a statement on the decision, “Considering the short term economic challenges faced by the people, we decided to shift the release date of the movie on the auspicious day of Lohri on 13th January”.
