Nani's Gang Leader postponed to avoid clash with Saaho and will now release on September 15!
Gang Leader was unveiled on July 15 with the tagline 'Revengers Assemble'.
Natural Star Nani, who is basking in the positive response that his last release Jersey amassed, is getting ready for the release of his upcoming movie Gang Leader. Reportedly, the producers of this movie have decided to postpone the release to avoid a Box Office clash with the much-awaited action thriller Saaho, starring Prabhas. The first look of the movie Gang Leader was unveiled on July 15 and the tagline - 'Revengers Assemble' - had become a point of discussion on Twitter, for being an obvious wordplay on the Marvel Endgame's tagline. The first song that was released on July 18, was also received favourably and though it is not one of the hyped-up movies, Gang Leader is already expecting a reasonable Box Office performance.
Earlier, Nani, the director and the producers of the movie had all stated that the movie would be hitting the screens on August 30. However, now the producers have now decided to postpone the movie's release as the action thriller Saaho, starring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor, is also set to release on August 30. With a budget of Rs. 300 Crores, Saaho is already highly expected - after all, this bilingual is the only movie that Prabhas has taken on since Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. Now the release date of Gang Leader has been pushed to September 15. However, the movie will still end up in a Box Office competition like the upcoming gangster comedy film starring Varun Tej - Valmiki, will also hit the screens on September 15. Valmiki, a remake of the 2014 Tamil movie Jigarthanda, is being remade by director Harish Shankar.
Director Vikram K Kumar, who had earlier directed Suriya's 24, is wielding the microphone and Mirosla Kuba Brojek is the cinematographer for Gang Leader. This movie's cast has names like Karthikeya, Priyanka Arul Mohan, Lakshmi, Saranya, Aneesh Kuruvilla, Priyadarshi, Raghubabu, Vennela Kishore, Jaija, Pranya and Sathya. This movie is being bankrolled by Y Naveen, Y Ravi, and Mohan Cherukuri under the banner of Mythri Movie Makers. The music is by Anirudh Ravichander, making it his second movie in Tollywood, following Jersey. Popularly called the Natural Star, Nani had debuted in 2008 with the movie Ashta Chamma. His 11-year-old career has had both crest and troughs. After Gang Leader, Nani will star in an action thriller called V, which will be directed by Mohan Krishna Indraganti of Sammohanam fame. It is heartening to see other producers making way for Saaho.Read More
