The much-anticipated film “Yodha,” starring Sidharth Malhotra, has had its release date postponed. Initially scheduled for a December 8 release this year, the film will now hit the cinemas in March next year.
The decision to shift the release date has sparked speculation that it was done to avoid a potential box office clash. Along with the announcement of the new release date, the film’s lead actor, Sidharth Malhotra, and producer Karan Johar took to their Instagram profiles to share the news. They revealed that “Yodha” is set to release in theaters on March 15, 2024.
In their Instagram posts, Karan Johar expressed his excitement, saying, “We all are ready to fly in the sky…with full enthusiasm and force. Yodha will be released in theaters on March 15, 2024.” Along with this announcement, two new posters of the film were unveiled, both featuring Sidharth Malhotra in a warrior’s avatar.
The decision to change the release date of “Yodha” comes amidst speculations, as it was originally set to release on the same date as Katrina Kaif’s film, “Merry Christmas” on December 8. To prevent a box office clash, it seems the makers of “Yodha” have opted for this release date shift. This isn’t the first instance of a film altering its release date to avoid a box office clash, as previously seen with Ranbir Kapoor’s “Animal” shifting its release to December 1 to avoid competition with “Gadar 2.”
