Fugly shifted to avoid clash with Heropanti

May 16, 2014 marked the clash of two films starring some of India's most anticipated debuts – Grazing Goat Pictures' second Hindi production Fugly which has four film debuts including that of former Olympic boxer Vijender Singh and Anil Kapoor's nephew Mohit Marweh and Sajid Nadiadwala's Heropanti starring Jackie Shroff's son Tiger Shroff.

With both films being youth centric and launching fresh faces, Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi took the decision to shift the release date of Fugly to June 13, 2014, to avoid splitting the audience share.

Ashvini Yardi says, "Akshay and I both share our individual friendship with Sajid and we took the joint decision to inform Sajid that we would shift our release date to June 13, 2014. Both our films are youth oriented films and mark the launch of promising newcomers in our industry. It's important to give both the films the chance they deserve and it wouldn't be fair to divide the audience. Although the genres may be similar, their individual subject matters are very unique."

Sajid, Ashvini and Akshay are longstanding friends and Akshay and Ashvini's gesture to shift the release date of Fugly will only cement their friendship.

Fugly is a coming-of-age drama set in the by lanes of Delhi, and marks Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi's second Hindi venture after OMG – Oh My God!
