The makers of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety have announced that the film will now be released on 23 February in the wake of the changes in the Hindi film calendar due to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat and Akshay Kumar's Pad Man.

The film was earlier scheduled to be released on 9 February, a date when Pad Man and Aiyaary are slated to hit the screens.

The makers did not think it was beneficial for anyone if three films of this size release on the same date. So, they decided to postpone it.

"We are all aware of the recent developments with regards to release dates. It didn't seem logical to stick to a Friday so crowded," Luv Ranjan, writer and director of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, told IANS, a news agency.

A new-age love triangle set in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, the film is produced by T-Series' Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Luv Films' Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg. It features Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh.

The Hindi film calendar got shaken up after Akshay Kumar decided to shift his much-awaited Pad Man to 9 February from the 25 January date, leaving the pre-Republic Day release window open for a solo release for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's controversial drama Padmaavat.

When Padmaavat was announced to have a clash with Pad Man, the makers of Aiyaary had altered its release date from 25 January to 9 February.

Now, Pad Man and Aiyaary will once again be competing at the box office.
