Madhuris Dedh Ishqiya postponed again

Would Madhuri Dixit have to wait for some more time before she makes her comeback on the big screen? If some rumour mongers in the world of web have to be believed, this could well be the case. Buzz is that Dedh Ishqiya may be getting pushed by at least a couple of weeks since Madhuri's co-star in the film, Arshad Warsi, has two back to back films arriving in the month of January.

"Mr. Joe B Carvalho, which is produced by his long standing secretary Bhola, is arriving on 3rd January while as per the original plans, Vishal Bhardwaj produced Dedh Ishqiya arrives a week later, i.e. on January 10. Since Arshad can't be expected to promote both films almost simultaneously, more so since he is also expected to kick-start the shooting of The Legend of Michael Mishra soon, possibility of Dedh Ishqiya being moved ahead has been discussed," says an insider.

If at all this indeed happens, Madhuri's fans would have to wait for a much longer period.

"In any case first the film was supposed to release this month and then it was pushed ahead to January. If at all the film is moved any further, it would have to be January end or February since it won't be fighting Salman's Jai Ho that arrives on January 24," a trade source adds.

While there has been no official communication made by either Shemaroo or Vishal Bhardwaj yet, Arshad puts all speculations to rest.

"I spoke to folks at Shemaroo over the weekend and the film is coming on January 10, for sure," assures Arshad, "We are working out a plan so that once I am back from Coorg, where I am currently shooting for some songs for Mr. Joe B Carvalho, I could promote both the films simultaneously."

To accommodate that, he has also moved around his dates for The Legend of Michael Mishra. "Yes, I was supposed to start the film in December but now it would only be after mid-January," he says.

On a lighter note he adds, "I am just one guy yaar; I am doing the maximum, I can do. All said and done, the kind of excitement that I would generate by going to five cities and promoting it there, Madhuri can do it by sending just one tweet."
