Last week, we told you how two stellar biopics, one on hockey player Sandeep Singh titled Soorma, and the other of actor Sanjay Dutt, were slated to clash at the box office on June 29. The makers of the Diljit Dosanjh-starrer Soorma had already blocked the date, but when the yet untitled Sanjay Dutt biopic was postponed to June, a clash was evident.
Now we hear that to avoid this battle of biopics at the box office, Soorma’s release will be postponed. The Sanjay Dutt biopic, starring Ranbir Kapoor and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, is one of the most-awaited movies of the year. Hence, director Shaad Ali and the makers of Soorma want to avoid a clash at any cost. Judging by the anticipation already building for Kapoor’s next outing, we can’t blame them.
