We may not know how many twists and turns the film’s actual script has but the drama surrounding the release of ‘Kaaf Kangana’ is surely never ending. We had last reported about some hush-hush rumors circulating within the industry that the release date of ‘Kaaf Kangana’ has been delayed. Although Khalil ur Rahman Qamar had shot down those rumors and reiterated that the film was ready to be released on Eid-ul-Azha as planned, a recent post by Humayun Saeed says otherwise.
In an Instagram post shared by Humayun Saeed late last night, the release date for ‘Kaaf Kangana’ has been announced as 25th October. We called up Humayun Saeed to get more details about this surprising announcement, considering it came from him instead of anyone directly attached with the film.
“Khalil Sahab is a dear friend and he had asked me to put up the post announcing Kaaf Kangana’s new release date. The film has been delayed to avoid the big clash on Eid-ul-Azha as Khalil Sahab did not want that. The decision is taken as a step that is best for the industry”, said Humayun Saeed on-record.
This is certainly a wise move as a cluttered Eid-ul-Azha does negatively effect all the films involved. Nonetheless, this does come as a shock considering how adamant Khalil ur Rahman Qamar had been on releasing his film over Eid.
When we spoke to him about the why he had chosen Eid-ul-Azha as the release date for his film, especially when two films had already locked the Eid as their release date months in advance, Khalil ur Rahman Qamar said that his films always came on Eid-ul-Azha. He further added that it was tradition for him hence he had to do the same this time around as well. He had also suggested other films to move their release dates if there was such a big concern about the clash being a bad thing for industry.
Well, the situation seems to have changed now and all we can say is dair aye durust aye. Whatever the reason behind ‘Kaaf Kangana’ bowing out of the Eid-ul-Azha race is, we wish the film all the best for its new release date and eagerly wait for it to grace our screens on 25th of October.
