Ayushmann's 'Dream Girl 2' release date advanced to this date
In an exciting turn of events, Ayushmann Khurrana's upcoming comic caper Dream Girl 2 will now be premiering in theaters a week before its original schedule. The film, which was slated for a June 29, 2023 release, will now hit theaters on June 23, 2023. This step has reportedly been taken to avoid a clash with Kartik Aaryan-Kiara Advani starrer drama Satyaprem Ki Katha.
Why does this story matter?
- Producers often book favorable slots for a film's release to leverage festival breaks.
- For instance, Laal Singh Chaddha-Raksha Bandhan and Ram Setu-Thank God are examples of festive clashes this year.
- Considering such clashes lead to the division of screens, this recent development will ensure that both Dream Girl 2 and Satyaprem Ki Katha have ample time to run their course uninterruptedly.
Ekta Kapoor reportedly did the gesture for friend Sajid Nadiadwala
Per early reports, Dream Girl 2's producer and Balaji Motion Pictures honcho Ekta Kapoor decided to advance the release date to make space for Satyaprem Ki Katha. The gesture emanates from her friendship with the latter's producer Sajid Nadiadwala. Now that the clash is out of the way, audiences will get to watch two back-to-back commercial entertainers at the end of June 2023.
