Shoaib Mansoor’s ‘Bol’ Release Delayed in Pakistan & India?

May 3, 2011

Acclaimed Pakistani director Shoaib Mansoor‘s much-awaited social drama film Bol which was initially confirmed for 20 May release in India and the rest of the world, is likely to be delayed due to multiple releases in the coming weeks. The business, naturally, hit an all-time low due to multiple releases so the producers (Eros) are planning to re-schedule the release date of Bol.

“There’s talk that Eros is also planning to shift BOL to another date,” says Indian film trade analyst, Taran Adarsh.

Possibilities are that the Atif Aslam starer film will also be delayed here in Pakistan as Geo Films haven’t started promoting the film in full swing and only 17 days are left until 20th May. Geo is playing a poor part in promoting Bol because till now it should have started promoting it if they wanted it to release on 20th May. For instance, Khuda Kay Liye promos went on air before 2 months of its release, starting with the soundtrack. Whereas, Geo and TIPS (India) haven’t even started promoting the music of Bol. We hope Bol sees daylight soon!
