Nawazuddin Siddiqui ’s Monsoon Shootout which was premiered at The Cannes in 2013, wasn’t released due to its content as well as a decent release date. The good news is that the film is all set to release four years after its premiere.
Interestingly, the film will release on the same day as Tiger Zinda Hai. As per sources, Monsoon Shootout will clash with Salman Khan’s action thriller on 22nd. Nawaz has worked with Salman in two films earlier – Kick and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. He was even offered a role in Tiger Zinda Hai, which he turned down due to date commitments towards Manto.
According to sources,
“No other date is available before that. Besides, after December 22 there are no releases for 2 weeks and the makers want to cash in on that. Also, the audience for Salman starrer and Monsoon shootout is completely different, there won’t be any clash as such.”
Monsoon Shootout is a crime thriller film starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vijay Verma, Neeraj Kabi and Tannishtha Chatterjee. This film is about a policeman facing a life-altering decision when he must decide to shoot or not. Directed by Amit Kumar who earlier made an award-winning short film – Bypass which was the first time that Nawazudin Siddique and Irrfan Khan were seen together.
