But now, it seems, the makers are trying to avoid clashes with other Bollywood films that are releasing around the same time and hence might change the release date of Merry Christmas. And the producer of the same has opened up on the same.

Merry Christmas makers want to avert a clash?

So, News18, quoted Bollywood Hungama saying that the makers wanted to release Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi starrer Merry Christmas on 23rd December 2022. However, since Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon’s film Ganapath and Ranveer Singh-Jacqueline Fernandes and Pooja Hegde starrer Cirkus is releasing on the same day as well, it can be tough to get footfalls at the box office. Both Ganapath and Cirkus have sufficient buzz and hence Merry Christmas might tough time to grab the attention of the audience.
