Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt and director Vasan Bala’s highly anticipated film Jigra has been postponed. Alia took to Instagram to share a new poster of the film and announce its new release date.

Alia Bhatt Shares New Release Date on Instagram

Alia Bhatt announced the new release date on Instagram with a heartfelt message. She wrote, “11.10.2024 | JIGRA | See you at the movies ♥️☀.” The film, co-produced by Alia and Karan Johar, also features Vedang Raina in a pivotal role. The new poster has generated excitement among fans, eager to see Alia in this much-awaited project.

Clash with Jr NTR’s Devara Part 1 Avoided

The announcement of Jigra’s new release date came just minutes after the makers of Jr NTR’s Devara Part 1 announced their film’s new release date. Devara is now scheduled to release on September 27, 2024, which would have led to a clash with Jigra in theatres. To avoid this clash, the Jigra team promptly announced their new release date.

The makers of Devara shared their release date with a statement: “Sending a Warning Notice to all coasts about his early arrival ⚠️⚠️ Man of Masses @Tarak9999 ‘s #Devara in cinemas from 𝐒𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝟐𝟕𝐭𝐡! 🔥🔥 #DevaraOnSep27th 🌊.” This announcement underscored the significance of avoiding a clash between the two major films.

Dharma Productions’ Collaboration for Devara Distribution

In April, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions announced their collaboration with the makers of Devara Part 1 to distribute the film in the North. “Brace yourself for a mass hurricane! We are proud to announce our partnership for the north theatrical distribution rights for the next big cinematic experience in Indian cinema! Man of Masses Jr NTR’s #Devara – in cinemas 10th October 2024,” read the statement. This partnership highlights the anticipation surrounding Devara and its expected impact on the box office.

Debut Milestones for Janhvi Kapoor and Alia Bhatt

Devara also marks Janhvi Kapoor’s Telugu debut, adding to the excitement among her fans. On the other hand, Jigra marks Alia Bhatt’s first Hindi action film. Alia was previously seen performing action sequences in her Hollywood debut Heart of Stone, where she played a negative role alongside Gal Gadot.

The postponement of Jigra to October 11, 2024, is a strategic move to avoid a box office clash with Devara Part 1. Fans of Alia Bhatt and Jr NTR can now look forward to enjoying both films without having to choose between them. The excitement continues to build as both movies promise to deliver stellar performances and captivating stories.
