The producers of the film cited ICC cricket World Cup as the reason. ‘iSmart Shankar’ is scheduled for release on July 12th while cricket tournament finals is on July 14th. As the cricket fever is high, the makers opined that it will have impact on box office collections. Also this is Puri’s bounce back film and so they are not leaving any chance.
After discussing with the team, ‘iSmart Shankar’ release is pushed from July 12th to July 18th.
Puri Jagannadh and Charmme Kaur are producing the movie under Puri Jagannadh Touring Talkies and Puri Connects banner.
