Versatile actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's upcoming movie Monson Shootout is all set to release on December 22. But it came as a shock to everyone as Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif mega-movie Tiger Zinda Hai which is scheduled to release on the same day.

But now according to the latest reports, the movie will be releasing on a new date which is 15th December. It would have been an interesting clash as Nawazuddin was supposed to be part of Tiger Zinda Hai but the dates couldn't be matched. He was supposed to play the role of the leader of the terrorist organization.

The makers had earlier quoted, "No other date is available before that. Besides, after December 22, there are no releases for two weeks and the makers want to cash in on that. Also, the audience for the Salman-starrer and Monsoon Shootout is completely different, so there won't be any clash as such." But then the new posters of Monsoon Shootout suggested that the movie is going to release on 15th December. It was wise of the makers to change the release date as releasing with Salman's Tiger Zinda Hai would surely have hampered the box-office collections of the Monsoon Shootout.

The producer of the movie Guneet Monga said, "We had a successful release of ‘Haraamkhor' earlier this year and 2017 has proven to be a year when good content films were being accepted. So we feel now is the best time to release the film. For almost a year we were travelling across festivals with the film and then we wanted to wait and release the film when we felt the time was right."

So do you think the producers of Monsoon Shootout were afraid of Salman's Tiger Zinda Hai? Share your thoughts below.
