"We thank Jeetu sir and Balaji" - Shah Rukh Khan

Balaji Motion Pictures' romantic drama Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara which was earlier slotted for an Eid release, along side Shah Rukh Khan's Chennai Express will now release on Thursday, August 15, 2013 (Independence Day). It is learnt that Shah Rukh Khan spoke to Mr. Jeetendra and a meeting was held between Mr. Jeetendra, UTV and Shah Rukh Khan to resolve the situation of both the movies releasing together, and find a win-win situation for all.

"Keeping in mind that both weekends (8th Aug and 15th Aug) are good times for film releases, Jeetendra sir being the senior most showed the path. He took the decision to move Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara to August 15. This is extremely graceful of him. UTV, Rohit and I are very happy with the decision made and we thank Jeetu sir and Balaji for the same. This should pave the way for such mature and sensible amicable understandings whenever two films release on the same day in future too," says Shah Rukh Khan.

"My father and Shah Rukh spoke and have clearly worked out what is best for both the films. Both are big and keenly awaited films and should not be made to eat into each other's business. I have huge respect for SRK and wish him the best," says Ekta Kapoor.

Chennai Express will now release on Aug 8 while Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai Dobara will release on Aug 15.
