Is Akshay Kumar Pushing The Release Date Of Sarfira Due To Kalki 2898 AD?

The continued success of Kalki 2898 AD has apparently got the makers of Akshay Kumar Sarfira’s thinking. If sources are to be believed, Sarfira is likely to get postponed and an official announcement regarding the same might be made soon.

According to an insider, a source close to the reports told Times Now, “The producers have not yet taken a call to postpone Sarfira.” The insider added, “But with Kalki being unstoppable and Kamal Haasan’s Hindustani 2 locked in for July 12, plus Akshay Kumar’s alarming low success ratio recently, Sarfira is likely to be postponed.”

The producers are yet to make a final call on this. Akshay Kumar’s alarming low success ratio at the box office is also another reason why Sarfira is likely to get postponed. For the unversed, Sarfira was initially scheduled for release in September 2023 but was later postponed to February 2024.

Kalki 2898 AD currently stands tall with Rs.800 crore at the global box-office. The blockbuster stars Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, and Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles along with Kamal Haasan as the antagonist.
