Parmish Verma’s Dil Diyan Gallan has been announced for release on 3rd May 2019, and while many would take that as a normal announcement, we saw a big clash at the box office on the same date. Dil Diyan Gallan will face a head-on clash with Preet Harpal's comeback film Lukan Michi and Diljit Dosanjh's B-flick Arjun Patiala. Clashes between Punjabi movies don't surprise us anymore. It is inevitable to avoid clashes when the number of movies releasing this year is huge and there are just 52 Fridays to accommodate them all. The makers tried their best by announcing release dates way in advance but this wasn’t of any good use. Bollywood announcing their movies with time lead to Punjabi movies shifting dates which lead to more confusion and chaos.
Parmish Verma and Wamiqa Gabbi starrer movie Dil Diyan Gallan would release on 3rd May 2019. This modern love story set up in the backdrop of London looked quite impressive in the teaser itself. The movie is directed and written by Parmish Verma and Uday Pratap Singh. On the other hand, Diljit Dosanjh’s Bollywood movie Arjun Patiala is directed by Rohit Jugraj because of which Ammy Virk’s Muklawa was shifted and the other one releasing on the same date is Mandy Takhar and Preet Harpal starrer Lukan Michi directed by M Hundal.

To avoid the clashes the Punjabi makers are trying their best to find a date which suits them best but seems like Dil Diyan Gallan couldn't avoid the clash and will now have a distributed audience walking inside the theatre, not just this even the business of the other two films will be affected.
Well, we don’t know what will the makers do now, as both Lukan Michi and Arjun Patiala were announced before this one. Though Lukan Michi ‘s announcement poster said that it would release in April 2019 but now it shows that the release date is 3rd May 2019. We hope that this film by Parmish Verma doesn’t fall prey to clashes, we're more worried about Lukan Michi frankly.
Also that this shifting of dates and rescheduling movies has created a lot of confusion amongst the audience. It is difficult to find the real release date with so many posters and announcements of the same movie.
