Thrice! Yes, you read it right. It’s been thrice that Gippy Grewal’s upcoming Punjabi film – Kaptaan’s release date has been announced. But this time, we hope it’s final.
Produced by Tips and directed by Mandeep Kumar, Kaptaan is the most eagerly awaited film of Gippy Grewal in 2016. In September 2015, it was annnonced that Kaptaan would release on 25th March 2016. However, later the date was changed and given to Ambarsariya. According to sources, this change was done because in June, Sardaarji Returns was already booked starring Diljit, so Ambarsariya couldn’t even get a release in May-June Period. This would’ve implied that Ambarsariya would’ve got too delayed.

Despite the fact that Kaptaan’s shooting was done prior to Ambarsariya, Kaptaan was relegated to the backseat. Anyways, the film was then announced to be released on 6th May 2016.
However, even this didn’t work well with Kaptaan team as PTC Motion Pictures suddenly stepped in and announced their much-delayed project – Zorawar on 6th May. This announcement by PTC raised many an eyebrow as everybody thought that we would get to see another big clash after ‘Ardaas-Love Punjab’. But it seems, Tips didnt’ want to take ‘panga’ with PTC and hence, decided to postpone Kaptaan’s release date further.
And now finally, it has been decided that Kaptaan would hit the screens on 20th May 2016. This news has been confirmed by Gippy Grewal to the team of I am Punjaabi-Ballewood. So, Gippy Grewal fans, it is time to rejoice and do some ‘Balle Balle!’ By the way, isn’t Gippy looking ultra-hot in the black suit? 😉
We wish the team of Kaptaan all the best! To know more about Kaptaan, read here:
