“Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai“, which marks the directorial debut of Keshhav Panneriy, is now scheduled to release on January 13 next year instead of November 18 this year. The director says it’s because the team wants to give it their best shot.
Produced by Purnima Mead of Bibia Films, the movie features Arbaaz Khan, Ashutosh Rana, Prem Chopra, Supriya Pathak, Manjari Phadnis and Himash Kohli.
Panneriy said in a statement: “Yes, we have shifted the date. We are now releasing the film on January 13, 2017, as we thought it would be an apt day for release.
“Certain portions of the film are yet to be shot and the film also has a lot of visual effects. So rather than rushing the release and doing a half-baked job, both Purnima and me thought of pushing the release by a few months so that we could do justice to the film.”
The logo and the character sketch of the actors’ parts were revealed last month to the audience.
The last leg of the film’s shooting ends in September, post which the film will go into its post-production stage.
“Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai” is an inspirational story of various characters with their own set of happy moments, challenges and adversities. How they cross each other’s paths and come up trumps against all odds to realise their dreams, is what the movie is about.
