Bejoy Nambiar's Wazir, which was scheduled to release in October this year, was pushed to December 4, and will now release on January 8 next year. Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra said that the film's release was delayed as the team required some time to complete it perfectly.
Wazir features Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Aditi Rao Hydari and John Abraham.
"There were two reasons behind the delay. I was not happy with the special effects used on Bachchan saab's leg," said Mr Chopra.
"I don't want to make a film in a hurry. If we spend more time, we can make a better film. So, we are taking time on every reel. PK was delayed by six months. Why did we do that? Not because other films were releasing, we thought that we required time," he added.
Wazir will be ready by December 20.

"I still don't know how people are shooting and are going to release their film. I think if we rush, then the filmmaking process will be affected. It creates a pressure on the film. We like to make films with ample amount of time. We are not in any hurry. We are a bit lazy," said Mr Chopra.
