Wanted good release space for "Bangistan" says karan Anshuman

Mumbai,August 1: Director Karan Anshuman says the release of his upcoming film "Bangistan" has been pushed ahead as the makers wanted some space for the movie.

"It due to 'Bahubali', 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' as both these films are doing well.

"We did not anticipated this huge business. We wanted a good space where there are no major releases so that we get space for our film. We have got one extra week to blow our trumpet," Karan said.

Salman Khan starrer "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is having a mega run at the box-office and S S Rajmouli's magnum opus "Bahubali" is also doing good business.

Sharing similar sentiments lead actor Riteish Deshmukh said, "It is not about ego that you take on a film.It is about releasing a film at a right time. A film takes two years or so to make and everyone works hard for it so we have to take a decision that is in the best interest of the film." 

Earlier "Bangistan" was to release on July 31 along with Ajay Devgn-Tabu starrer "Drishyam". 

Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani the film is now scheduled to release on August 7.

"Bangistan" revolves around two wannabe terrorists who decide to swap their religion in order to inish the other community. The upcoming satire film also stars Pulkit Samrat and actress Jacqueline Fernandez will appear in a cameo.

"Bangistan" has been apparently banned in Pakistan over alleged anti-Muslim sentiment.
