Kabir Khan was reported to have preferred Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan over Katrina Kaif’s Phantom..
Kabir Khan was busy promoting Bajrangi Bhaijaan throughout last month and reports emerged that he is deliberately ignoring the Katrina Kaif-Saif Ali Khan starrer Phantom and instead focused on Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. However, in a candid chat with BollywoodLife, Kabir Khan rubbishes all these rumours.
He mentions, “I don’t know why people are saying that I am ignoring Phantom! People on Twitter are also asking me that and sometimes I reply back saying, ‘IT’S MY FILM, HOW CAN I IGNORE IT?’ Phantom is very, very special for me and I cannot ignore it ever. What happened with Phantom is that we were initially going to release it on the 3rd of April, but it’s a UTV film and in February they said that another film from their slate is vacating their slot of 28th of August. I guess it was Jagga Jasoos and that weekend is much bigger as it has Raksha Bandhan. So they told us to not to release on April 3 and told us to release on August 28 and that has worked fine for us. The film was always ready and with still six weeks remaining for its release, we have lot of time for the promotions of the film. I was waiting for Bajrangi Bhaijaan to release, now I will shift my focus to Phantom, work on the final detailing and then release it on August 28.”
There you have it, the film is ready and with Bajrangi Bhaijaan doing well, Kabir will now on Phantom now. Are you excited to see Saif Ali Khan and Katrina in Phantom?
