Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s first family entertainment film, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (LSTCK), may have to wait before it hits theatres. Scheduled to release on May 11, the film’s release has now been pushed back, to avoid clashing with the Indian Premier League (IPL) and other film releases.
Kashyap joined hands with UTV Spotboy as a creative producer for LSTCK, which marks the directorial debut of Sameer Sharma. This food film revolves around the life of a Punjabi joint family and stars Kunal Kapoor and Huma Qureshi.
About their decision to reschedule dates and not gamble in the IPL season, a UTV spokesperson says, “With the ongoing IPL, the month of May is already packed with releases like Jannat 2, Dangerous Ishq, Department and Ishaqzaade. A film like LSTCK needs an open date to release, like Paan Singh Tomar”. The revised date has not been announced yet.
