Why did Akshay Kumar postpone Fugly?

The Khiladi Kumar pushed the release of his upcoming production venture. But why?

Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi’s upcoming production venture, Fugly, which marks the Bollywood debut of India’s boxing champion Vijender Singh and Anil Kapoor’s nephew Mohit Marwah was slated to release on May 16. However, we have learnt that the actor has postponed the release of the film. Why? That’s because Sajid Nadiadwala’s Heropanti, starring Jackie Shroff’s son, Tiger was also scheduled to release on the same date.

“Both Akshay and I share our individual friendship with Sajid and we took the joint decision to inform him of moving out film’s release. Both our movies are youth-oriented films and are launching new talent in our industry. So it’s important to give both the films the chance they deserve and it wouldn’t be fair to divide the audience. Although the genres may be similar, their individual subject matters are very unique,” Ashvini was quoted by a leading daily.

Now, that is a really sweet gesture on Akshay‘s part, we must say.
