Viacom 18 Motion Pictures have announced the release dates of both their much-awaited films – Priyanka Chopra’s untitled biopic on Olympic medalist ‘Mary Kom’ and Akshay Kumnar’s ‘Gabbar’.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Mary Kom’ will hit screens on October 2 this year, while Krish’s ‘Gabbar’ is slated to release on January 23, 2015.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the announcement, “Xclusiv: Viacom18 and SLB Films announce the release dates for much anticipated films – #MaryKom on 2 Oct 2014 and #Gabbar on 23 Jan 2015,” he posted.
Both the films incidentally will release on holidays – ‘Mary Kom’ biopic on Gandhi Jayanti and ‘Gabbar’ will coincide with the Republic Day weekend.
‘Mary Kom’ is a biopic on Indian boxer Mary Kom, who is a five-time World Boxing champion, and the only woman boxer to have won a medal in each one of the six world championships. Actress Priyanka Chopra has been training hard for the role for a year now.
‘Gabbar’ stars Akshay Kumar, Shruti Haasan, Prakash Raja and Sonu Sood. The action flick will also have Kareena Kapoor Khan in a special appearance.
