Just recently, the Ananth Mahadevan directed film Aksar 2 featuring Zareen Khan and Gautam Rode ran into a bit of trouble at the censor board with the CBFC cracking down on the highly sensual song ‘Aaj Zid’. While the issues with the censor board have since been sorted, we hear that the film itself has now hit another hurdle.
Chirag Bajaj says, “Yes we have decided to push the release of Aksar 2 and are yet to finalize a new release date. We are expecting to lock the new release date later today.” Prod Bajaj further about the reason behind this postponement in the release of Aksar 2 and he adds, “If you look at the date of October 6 it is rather cluttered with multiple films in Hindi, English, Marathi and other languages hitting screens. We want to avoid releasing our film in this clutter and hence have decided on pushing the release to a more clearer day to help the film.”
In between the makers of Aksar 2 launched a new song Called Tanhaiyan, the song featuring Zarine Khan and Abhinav Shukla has been shot in Mauritius. “We have shot at some exotic places — a British kind of villa that has been converted into a museum of artefacts with beautiful furniture, pianos and grandfather clocks.
That will be launched next Tuesday. We wanted to build this up and not hurry through, that’s the reason we took a call to push the film. Also, some post-production work is remaining,” reveals the filmmaker. As for when it will be releasing, he says the date will be announced in a day or two, but it is definitely releasing this month.
