Talking about the date move, Imtiaz Ali stated, “It takes the whole village to raise a child! And it takes a big team to raise a film and bring it to the world. And while I’m excited to show you the trailer of ‘Laila Majnu’ ASAP, the wait will be slightly more. My friends in the distribution team urged me to look at releasing the film on the 7th of September and I see their point that it would be better for ‘Laila Majnu’ to be released on that date. I’ve been told the trailer comes out about 4-5 weeks before the film and not any earlier. So guys.. a little longer wait, we shall put the trailer out soon.. Thanks for the overwhelming response on the posters and videos of ‘Laila Majnu’, keep sending us your love … love is worth the wait!
‘Laila Majnu’ to release on 7th Sept.”
In a video earlier, Imtiaz gives out reasons to watch Laila Majnu which is directed by his brother Sajid Ali.
“This movie has no stars. The lead actors are new and do not belong to any filmy family. A person who thinks more from brain and less from the heart, I don’t how he will like the movie. But if you are a little mad, you have your own opinions, you are not perfect, can make mistakes and can fall in love, then you must watch this film as this movie has characters like you. Both Laila and Majnu are just like you. This story has less logic and more passion. Even the people who have made this film are themselves quite mad. So, if you are passionate, you will see yourself in this film.”
