Karan Johar has always had a magic touch when it comes to direction, having produced some classic Bollywood movies which are still loved today. There has been immense fanfare since the director announced his next, titled Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The latest news about the movie starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt is that it has been postponed.
As reported by Pinkvilla, the movie, which was looking for a Valentines week release in 2023, will be further delayed to later next year as the makers will not be able to wrap up filming before February.
“Keeping Alia Bhatt’s pregnancy in mind, Karan has delayed the shooting schedule of a film’s key sequence. While the initial plan was to shoot in August, the filmmaker will now be shooting the scene in question once Alia Bhatt is back to shoot after her delivery,” a source close to the development told the publication.
The source added that Karan is planning to begin a schedule of around 10 to 15 days with Alia in the first quarter of 2023. This delay in filming is the root cause for the movie’s delay. The movie’s updated release plans are expected to be updated by its makers soon.
Alia Bhatt’s debut movie Student of the Year was also helmed by Karan Johar in 2012. Their latest collaboration also features the likes of Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, and Shabana Azmi in important roles.
While Karan Johar is working on his seventh directorial, the filmmaker is also back hosting Bollywood stars and celebrities in the latest season of Koffee With Karan, which is now available exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar. The first episode of the new season featuring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt is now available to stream on the platform.
