Sajid Nadiadwala postpones Heropanti release to make way for Highway!

Nadiadwala’s film that marks Tiger Shroff’s debut in Bollywood was slated for release in February 2014, but the producer has shifted the release date to May 16 next year so that his other film, Highway enjoys wide visibility

Sajid Nadiadwala was looking for a big release for his production, the Alia Bhatt-Randeep Hooda starrer Highway, directed by Imtiaz Ali. The initial plan was to release the film on February 21, the same date that his other release, Heropanti was supposed to release. But now Heropanti, which marks the debut of Tiger Shroff, will release later.

“We have now decided to release Highway on Feb 21, 2014 and consequently Heropanti will now release on May 16, 2014,” Nadiadwala said in a statement. Nadiadwala and Imtiaz Ali have tied up with UTV Motion Pictures for the worldwide and satellite rights of his romantic drama, Highway.

Highway is looking great and I want to give the movie the release it deserves. We’ve tied up with the UTV team who share our vision to ensure that the film reaches deep and wide in India and across international markets,” Sajid said.
