Kartik Aaryan reveals why Shehzada was postponed for Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan

Actor Kartik Aaryan starrer Shehzada which was supposed to release on February 10 was postponed just by one week. It was said that the makers took this decision seeing Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham starrer Pathaan success at the box office. However, for the first time, Kartik revealed why the makers took this decision in a recent interview and it was out of respect as well as seeing the movie’s success.

Kartik Aaryan on Shehzada getting postponed:

In an interview with RJ Siddharth Kannan, the Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 actor said, “The decision was mostly of the producers and directors. Main fan hoon Shah Rukh sir ka waese bhi toh mujhe toh accha hi laga ki jab yeh shift karne ka decision horaha tha. Because woh ek tareeke se jab film aarahi hoti hai, not that I’m saying ki koi chota koi bada, I’m saying ki already woh run karrahi hai woh film. Woh bohut acche se chali hai film. Uske saath wahape aana woh correct nahi lagraha tha producers ko, so they took a call to just delay it by a week jisme kuch aesa dikkat nahi lagraha tha.

(I am a fan on Shah Rukh sir so I felt good when the decision to shift was taken. When a film is about to release, I’m saying one is big the other is small, I’m saying the film is already running. That film has worked really well. To release the film then didn’t seem correct to the producers so they took a call to just delay it by a week which didn’t seem difficult). We went ahead with it.” 

Pathaan is doing phenomenal business at the box office as well as worldwide. Talking about watching Pathaan, the Shehzada actor said, “Maine dekhi (I watched), I also reacted to it. Mujhe toh bohut acchi lagi. Kaafi acchi lagi mujhe. Mujhe infact Shah Rukh-Salman sir saath mein dekhne ka mauka mila bohut time baad woh mereko bohut zada acha laga (I liked it a lot. In fact, I got to watch Shah Rukh-Salman sir together after a long time that I liked a lot).” 

Pathaan is now inching closer to hitting the 1000 crore mark in the global markets whereas the Siddharth Anand directorial venture is about to enter the 500 crore club soon at the domestic box office.
