Exciting news awaits fans of Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor as their highly anticipated film, Bawaal, is set to release earlier than expected on Amazon Prime Video. Originally scheduled for July 27, the film’s release date has been moved up to July 21, as per insider sources.
According to reports, the decision to advance the release was made after careful consideration by the film’s core team and Amazon Prime Video. Varun Dhawan, in particular, expressed his concerns about premiering the movie on an OTT platform just a day before the theatrical release of his mentor Karan Johar‘s highly anticipated film, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, which hits cinemas on July 28. Given Varun’s deep respect and admiration for Karan, who launched him in the industry through Student Of The Year in 2012, he felt it would be more appropriate to avoid any clashes or overshadowing of his mentor’s film.
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani boasts an impressive star cast, including Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, and Shabana Azmi. With Varun’s decision to bring Bawaal forward, the clash between the two films has been averted, allowing each movie to enjoy its own spotlight.
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, known for his successful films Dangal (2016) and Chhichhore (2019), Bawaal is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala’s Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. Interestingly, the film was initially intended for a theatrical release, with a fixed date of October 6. However, the decision to directly premiere on Amazon Prime Video was announced earlier, with a poster launch confirming the OTT debut.
In an exciting development, there are also reports circulating on the internet that Bawaal will have a grand premiere at the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, in mid-July. Paris reportedly plays a significant role in the film, making it a fitting location for the premiere event.
As fans eagerly anticipate the release of Bawaal, they can now mark their calendars for July 21 and prepare for an engaging and entertaining cinematic experience on Amazon Prime Video. Stay tuned for further updates as the film’s promotions are expected to kick off in the first week of July, promising a delightful blend of romance, drama, and exceptional performances from Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor.
