A trade source revealed to the tabloid, “A week-long stint that includes filming some action sequences featuring Ajay Devgn, is left. Initially, the makers were toying with the idea of releasing it on January 26 next year, but then realised that Vijay Diwas, which commemorates India’s victory in the 1971 war, is celebrated on December 16. It is only fitting that a retelling of a chapter from the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war arrive at the theatres around the same time.” The source further mentioned, “The makers were also contemplating a Diwali release for Bhuj, but decided against it because so many big-ticket projects are vying for the slot.” Bhuj: The Pride of India: Ajay Devgn Looks Impressive as IAF Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik!
