2023 is being touted as one of the most exciting and desirable years for Bollywood.
With several films lined up for release, it’s going to be one of the most entertaining years for the film industry. And one film added to the list of 2023 releases is Kartik Aaryans Shehzada.
The film, which was due for a November 2022 release, has now been pushed back to February 10, 2023.
The announcement was made with the first look poster by Kartik Aaryan, pictured running wild.

However, what catches most people’s attention is the fact that the date it was pushed to was the same as Karan Johar’s tentative release date Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
The filmmaker and actor were rumored to have had a falling out after Karan Johar decided to recast his film dostan 2 and dropped Kartik Aaryan from the sequel. Since then, it has been speculated that the two share a rather cold vibe with each other.
Several users took to Twitter to comment, “Now Karan Johar will run away,” while another wrote, “Then it’s Karthik Vs Ranveer and Kriti Vs Aalia.”
So it’s a clash between
Rocky Rani ki prem kahani vs Shehzada on February 10, 2023

Although, around the same time as news of Kartik Aaryan’s Shehzada The postponement hit the internet, as did another message in which Karan Johar decided to push the release of his film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
A source revealed pinkvilla“In light of Alia Bhatt’s pregnancy, Karan has delayed the shooting schedule for a key sequence in a film. While originally slated to start shooting in August, the filmmaker will now shoot the scene in question once Alia Bhatt is back with filming following her confinement. He plans to begin this 10- to 15-day schedule with Alia in Q1 2023. The delay in filming has, in turn, delayed the film’s release date.”
The film is now set to be released later in 2023.
