Karan Johar returned to direction after a gap of 5 years with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The film was scheduled to release in theatres on February 10, 2023. However, the audience will not get to watch it in theatres on Valentine's Day next year. In an interview with an entertainment portal, Karan confirmed that Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani has been postponed.
The filmmaker revealed that he is yet to shoot a song with the leading lady Alia Bhatt. He further shared that the shoot will take place only after the actress delivers her first child. "Yes, it is true we are delayed. I still have a song to shoot. We were meant to shoot it this month. But there were location issues in Europe. Now Alia won’t be able to shoot until February 2023. We will shoot the song after her delivery now," Karan told.
While Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani has been pushed ahead, Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon's Shehzada has taken up the Valentine's Day 2023 slot. The remake of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, Shehzada, is directed by Rohit Dhawan and also stars Manisha Koirala and Paresh Rawal.
Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani stars Alia with Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi. The makers are yet to announce its new release date.
