Pushpa 2, the sequel of Allu Arjun's superhit film 'Pushpa', which was to be released in the year 2021, was to be released on August 15 this year, but at the last moment the makers postponed it till December this year. The reason for this is said to be the incomplete work of the film's VFX. Since no Bollywood film has been a blockbuster till now, the film makers had high expectations from 'Pushpa', but now with the postponement of this film, the schedule of many Bollywood films has definitely been spoiled. Actually, Rohit Shetty's Ajay Devgan starrer film 'Singham Again' was also to be released on August 15 this year, but it was postponed to avoid a clash with 'Pushpa 2'. Now Ajay Devgan will compete with Kartik Aaryan's 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3' on Diwali. Of course, now with the postponement of 'Pushpa 2', the schedule of Ajay Devgan's films has been disturbed. Actually, his film 'Raid 2' has already been announced to be released in November. But now that 'Singham' will release on Diwali in late October, it seems difficult for 'Raid 2' to release in November. There is talk that this film will be postponed or it may release earlier.

Mega clash will happen in August

The postponement of 'Pushpa 2' has not only affected Ajay Devgan's film 'Singham 2', but there is also talk of Vicky Kaushal's film 'Chhava', which was to be released in December, getting postponed. On the other hand, after 'Pushpa' was out of the field on 15 August, many other films have staked their claim on this release date. John Abraham's film 'Veda' was the first to announce to challenge 'Pushpa 2'. After that, Akshay Kumar postponed the release of his film 'Khel Khel' from September to Independence Day. The makers of 'Stree 2' have also announced that it will be released on 15 August instead of the end of August. Apart from these, the makers of South Cinema's Sanjay Dutt starrer film 'Double Smart' have also announced to postpone their film from June to Independence Day.

There is also talk of postponing 'Welcome to the Jungle'

On the other hand, there is talk of Akshay Kumar's film 'Welcome to Jungle', which is to be released on Christmas this year, being postponed. If this happens, then Aamir Khan's 'Sitare Zameen Par' will have a solo release on Christmas. Apart from this, many other films of South Cinema are also to be released this year. Currently, their producers are waiting for the correct release date. These include films like Chiyaan Vikram's 'Thangalan', Surya's 'Kanguva', Ram Charan's 'Game Changer' and Rishab Shetty's 'Kantara 2'. Now it remains to be seen whose game these films spoil.

'Postponement increases costs'

Regarding the release dates of films getting messed up in the second half of the year, producer and film business analyst Girish Johar says that if a big budget film gets postponed at the last moment, not only does its cost increase but the schedule of many other films also gets messed up. The same thing happened last year when Jawaan was postponed. According to Girish, 'This year, due to the films of big Bollywood stars not being ready for release, everyone had high expectations from big South films. But now the release dates of big South films Pushpa 2, Kalki 2898 AD, Indian 2 and Devra getting postponed several times has messed up the entire schedule of Bollywood films. Actually, when a big film blocks a release date for itself, no other film comes before or after it. But if it is postponed at the last moment, the schedule of that entire month gets messed up. Also, the entire system of films releasing in the month in which it is postponed also gets messed up.'
