Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express is one of the most awaited films of the year. But the movie which was supposed to release on August 8th will now release on August 9th. The makers of the movie have decided to release the movie on Eid as they do not want the release date to fall in the days of Ramdaan.
Confirming the news film critic Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, "Breaking News: #ChennaiExpress will release on 9 August now. Not 8 August."
It was reported earlier that Shahrukh Khan's Chennai Express will clash with Akshay Kumar's Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again as both the movies were scheduled to release on Eid. Later, Shahrukh Khan requested Ekta Kapoor to postpone the release of OUATIMA. Shahrukh is very close to Ekta's father Jeetendra and that's why Ekta decided to release the Akshay Kumar starrer on 15th August, instead of Eid.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, Chennai Express is a story about a man's journey from Mumbai to Rameshwaram and what happens during the journey. Since it's a Rohit Shetty film, one can expect lots of action in it with a romantic twist.
