The release of actor John Abraham
starrer Shootout at Wadala
has been postponed to May 3.
The action crime drama, directed by Sanjay Gupta, is the
prequel to 2007 hit film Shootout at Lokhandwala
based on the book 'Dongri to Dubai'.
The film dramatises the first-ever registered encounter
by Mumbai police, where gangster Manya Surve, played by John
Abraham in the movie, was shot dead at Wadala in 1982.
The film was scheduled to release on December 7 last year
but it was pushed to January 25 this year to avoid a clash
with Aamir Khan's Talaash
, that released on November 30.
The makers then announced that the film will release on
May 1, which happens to be International Worker's Day and
Labour Day in India. Now it has been postponed to May 3.
"The movie is now releasing on May 3, that is Friday,"
John told reporters here, at a promotional event of the film
John is quite excited about the film and is hopeful that
the audience will like it.
