Bollywood films Cirkus and Phone Bhoot have secured a July 15, 2022, release.
The release date of Cirkus has been a long time coming and director Rohit Shetty felt the need to wait for the right time. He tells the media:
“There is such a backlog, I did not want to jump in. Also, everybody gave me that respect for not coming for two weeks when I came with Sooryavanshi. People could have clashed with me or come the next week. But they gave me that space because I was holding on to my film for so long. Now it is my turn.”
As such, the film is expected to have a lot of special effects and the remainder of the shooting is due to take place in Ooty.
Cirkus ropes in Ranveer Singh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hegde and Varun Sharma as cast. Reliance Entertainment and T-Series are on board as producers.
Meanwhile, the Excel Entertainment-backed Phone Bhoot is directed by Mirzapur‘s Gurmmeet Singh.
Starring Siddhant Chaturvedi, Katrina Kaif and Ishaan Khatter in the leads (collaborating together for the first time), the movie’s release date coincides with the 22nd Anniversary of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas writers Ravi Shankaran and Jasvinder Singh Bath have also penned Phone Bhoot.
