It’s official now. Director Nikhil Advani’s 3D stereoscopic animation feature film titled Delhi Safari will release nationwide on October 19. However, it will clash with Karan Johar’s comeback film as director, Student of the Year, which is slated to hit theatres on the same day.
Interestingly, after the 2003 blockbuster Kal Ho Na Ho, Karan and Nikhil never teamed up on any film. Reportedly, the two parted ways after creative differences cropped up between them while working on another project.
Asked why he opted to release his film on the very same day as that of his mentor, Nikhil said, “Who wants to clash with Karan? The decision has been taken by the distributor and producer.
The first week of October is observed as wildlife week. It made sense to release the film during that time as it will help our campaign.” Delhi Safari tells the story of five animals, who journey to Delhi to protest in front of the parliament when builders encroach upon their forest.
Urmila Matondkar, Govinda, Akshaye Khanna, Boman Irani and Suniel Shetty have lent their voices to the characters in the film while music has been composed by Shankar- Ehsaan-Loy.
