Salman Khan starrer ‘Antim’, which is being directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, was scheduled to hit the screens during Diwali this year. However, it looks like the makers have decided to push the release due to some fresh scenes. According to a news portal, after watching rushes of ‘Antim’, Salman Khan Mahesh Manjrekar felt the need to add more sequences to the action entertainer. Considering this change, the post production and editing of ‘Antim’ will be pushed further and hence they have reportedly zeroed in on a fresh release date.
According to the report, Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma and starrer ‘Antim’ will clash with John Abraham’ Satyameva Jayate 2’. Interestingly, Salman essays a Sikh cop in ‘Antim’, while John also plays a no-nonsense police officer in this Milap Zaveri directorial. ‘Antim’ is the official Hindi remake of hit Marathi movie, ‘Mulshi Pattern ’ (2018). The film narrates the story of a cop, played by Salman Khan, who is chasing a village youth-turned-gangster, essayed by Aayush Sharma. The team was previously planning to release ‘Antim’ during Diwali, but with the change in shoot, the movie will now hit the screens on a later date.
Praising Aayush’s dedication towards the movie, Manjrekar had told IANS: “One thing I loved the most is, he was possessed, for him ‘Antim’ was do or die. He was so dedicated to the character, he became ‘Rahuliya’. During the shoot of the song, one day I had to go early and only a few minor action sequences were left, so I went home. Next day, first thing in the morning I got to know, in the action scene, he accidentally hit a camera during a close up shot which broke his fingers. Since we had a lot of scenes and shots pending, I was slightly worried, but I was amazed, with that broken hand he finished the shoot. He must have been in terrible pain but somehow he managed.”
