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