The release of ‘Namaste Wahala,’ first movie collaboration between Bollywood and Nollywood, has been delayed by six months due to concerns about coronavirus.
The romantic comedy had earlier been scheduled for theatrical release on April 24.
But in a post on her social media page on Tuesday, Hamisha Ahuja, an Indian businesswoman-cum-filmmaker, announced the movie will now be released in October.
According to her, the move was taken against the background of the rising threats posed by the coronavirus crisis across the globe.
“In light of recent global developments we have had to extend our post production schedule and push back the release date of “Namaste Wahala” to October 2020,” she wrote on Instagram.
