helicopter eela new release date

Ajay Devgn’s production venture ‘Helicopter Eela‘ featuring his wife and actress Kajol has been reportedly delayed. The film directed by Pradeep Sarkar was supposed to release on September 7, but a recent report in DNA suggests that it has been rescheduled and will now release on October 12.

The reason for the same is being touted as Pradeep’s health. To the uninitiated, Sarkar was diagnosed with dengue and was admitted to a hospital. However, since megastar Amitabh Bachchan had given his dates for the special sequence of the film much in advance, the director left the hospital midway, shot the sequence and was rushed to the hospital once again.


Though he has been discharged, the doctors have advised him a week’s rest. Hence, to ensure that he recovers completely, Ajay has apparently decided to push the film’s release by a month. A source close to the leading daily added, “Ajay doesn’t want the post-production of the movie to go on without Pradeep dada around. He wants the director to complete the film as per his vision. Ajay is ready to wait for Dada to be fit enough so he can himself oversee the last stages of post-production. So, he decided to defer the release to October 12.”

Well, we do not mind watching the film late by a month, as one’s health is always a priority, which should not be neglected at all. Also, we wish the director a speedy recovery.
