"Ranbir had addressed the issue to me and Eros and we gave it much thought. Ranbir is, of course, one of the most looked upon youth icons of our time and his point was a much sensitised and valid one.”
"After having mutually discussed it with Eros, we have decided to release the film Oct 1. The film is a very happy one and celebrates life, hence releasing it on a peaceful day would be preferred. I am sure people`s good wishes are with us," Nadiadwala added.
The female lead of the movie, Priyanka Chopra also agreed to the decision and said, "This was our wish that the date should be postponed. I think it is the matter of principle. Whatever happens, we should go through this day in a very peaceful way. It is a very important day for India and we should all be together to give the day its deserving importance."
Meanwhile, Ranbir looked convinced with the decision and added, "Well, I hope whatever be the verdict, peace be maintained. That was a nightmare for us. The verdict shouldn`t be biased and should be in favour of all Indians."
