Bollywood Baadshah Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express is not releasing on August 8th as planned. The makers of the film have decided to postpone its release by a day. Initially, Eid was believed to fall on August 8. But now that the auspicious day will fall a day later, the film has been pushed to August 9. Government has announced August 9th as National Holiday and the makers want to milk the openings as much as possible.
Shah Rukh had pinned high hopes on this movie as his recent movies have become duds at the box office. Rohit Shetty is wielding megaphone for this project. SRK is himself producing the project under his Red Chillies banner.
