Heyy Babyy gives way to Marigold
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala has shifted the release date of his much awaited “Heyy Babyy” from July 27 to Aug 24 to accommodate close friend Salman Khan’s international movie “Marigold”.
A reliable source said: “When Nadiadwala learnt that Salman’s ‘Marigold’ would be releasing July 27 and the actor’s ‘Partner’ will follow it around July 20, he decided to release his film in August.”
The producer confirmed the news saying: “Salman is like family to me. It would only be my pleasure to do anything for him. And hence we have confirmed the release of ‘Heyy Babyy’ in August.”
Incidentally, “Heyy Babyy”, directed by Sajid Khan, is creating waves in the distribution circle. His trump card is the star cast of the film – Akshay Kumar, Fardeen Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Vidya Balan.
Those who have seen the rushes reveal that Akshay, who is paired for the first time with Vidya, revels in his role and will be a big box office draw.
Fardeen has proven his mettle in “No Entry” and Riteish has been a hit in entertainers like “Masti”, “Bluffmaster” and “Apna Sapna Money Money”. With Sajid Khan at the helm of the film, “Heyy Babyy” is expected to take the killer combination further.
A special song with superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be another high point of the film.
“I have made the film putting myself in the audience’s shoes. I have tried to slip into the skin of the audience. I want to entertain them. In fact, the characters of Akshay, Fardeen and Riteish reflects different aspects of my personality,” said Sajid Khan.
The romantic comedy has also been in the news for a special song featuring 21 actresses.
