Actor Sunny Deol today said that the release of "Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se" has been delayed to avoid the clash with Akshay Kumar's "Gold" and John Abraham's "Satyamev Jayate".
The film, which was earlier scheduled to hit the theatres on August 15, will now release on August 31.
"Since August 15 has two patriotic films 'Gold' and 'Satyamev Jayate' which are topical for the day and on August 24 we have our family friend Anil Sharma's son being launched who has our blessings. Our film is a wholesome family entertainer hence we have decided to release our film 'Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se' two weeks later on August 31, 2018," Sunny said in a statement.
The film is the third installment in the 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' (YPD) franchise and features Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby Deol.
