Ishkq In Paris director Prem soni, who recently lost is father, is suffering from cancer delaying the post-production work of the film
Preity Zinta’s Ishq in Paris may get delayed for a second time. Slated to release on November 2, alongside Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana and 1920 – Evil Returns, Preity’s project has suffered a string of bad luck.
Director Prem Soni has been suffering from cancer and had to go through a surgery, but he kept his illness under wraps for a long time. But on Sunday after Prem’s father passed away, he broke down and confirmed that he had been battling cancer of the gall bladder.
His father’s death further delayed the surgery. Now, the post-production of the film is stuck and this might further delay the release of Ishkq In Paris.
This however could prove to be tricky as the forthcoming dates will have the film pitted against the biggest movies of the year. The next release date is November 9, however just a week after that, on November 13, this decade’s most eagerly awaited film, Yash Chopra’s SRK starrer Jab Tak Hai Jaan is set to release. This might not auger well for Ishkq In Paris’ BO prospects. And just a fortnight after that, Aamir Khan’s Talaash hits the screens on November 30.
So, will Preity’s comeback film be sandwiched between biggies, or will the brave lass fight it out and come back with a clever strategy to ensure her film gets proper attention amidst heavy competition? Whatever the case, we wish the gutsy actor good luck and hope that director Prem Raj achieves a healthy and speedy recovery!
