The makers of upcoming Bollywood film Patiala House have reportedly decided to change the promotional posters of the film.
According to reports in the media, this change has been finalized at the last moment to incorporate the leading lady of the film Anushka Sharma. Post her box office success with the Yash Raj film Band Baaja Baarat, Anushka Sharma has become one of the most wanted young actresses of Bollywood.
And it is keeping this fact in mind that the producers will now promote Patiala House as a love story between lead actors Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma as opposed to the earlier choice of projecting the film as a father-son emotional drama.
However, the director of Patiala House, Nikhil Advani has vehemently refuted any claim of making changes in the film’s poster keeping only Anushka Sharma in mind. In a statement to the media, Nikhil Advani says that the concept of a variety of posters had always been in his mind and it was only the Akshay Kumar – Rishi Kapoor poster that was released initially. Nikhil Advani also confirmed that since Anushka Sharma is an integral part of the star cast, there was no question of releasing posters without her picture.
Patiala House essentially concentrates between the emotional tussle between a son (played by Akshay Kumar) and father (played by Rishi Kapoor). Their battle begins when the son wants to join the England cricket team inspite of being an Indian citizen. Patiala House hits theaters in February.
