'Shorgul' will now release on June 24 instead of June 17.

A 24 FPS Films Production, the Jimmy Sheirgill and Ashutosh Rana-starrer is based on intolerance and aspires to make audiences contemplate where humanity stands amidst the noise of religious, social, political and economic prejudice.

The makers of the film had advanced their release date by a week, but now the film's producer Swatantra Vijay Singh says he wants to avoid a clash with 'Udta Punjab', which is releasing on June 17, at the box office.

"We don't want this message to be lost when an equally socially relevant film like 'Udta Punjab' is releasing and hence, the rescheduling, as audiences need time to relate and consume such heavy-on content thinking films," Swatantra Vijay Singh said in a statement.

"Our film has a strong message that comes in the form of a wake-up call for the masses to be the change they always wanted to see. This is a film that makes us think. Our film reinstates the gross reality of today where the voice of the common man is being manipulated to favour socio-political motives," he added.

Also featuring Sanjay Suri, Narendra Jha, Hiten Tejwani, Eijaz Khan, Suha Gezen, Anirudh Dave and Deepraj Rana, 'Shorgul' will touch upon grave subjects that have transpired in the recent past such as Muzaffarnagar, Godhra, Babri Masjid riots apart from making references to bureaucratic misdoings, mind games and controversial master strokes of some high profile dignitaries.

Co-directed by Jitendra Tiwari and P. Singh, the lyrics have been penned by senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal.

She was fine with singing a one or two numbers. But her co-star and one of the makers of the film Farhan Akhtar convinced her and told her that it would be necessary for her to sing as it will look real and authentic and she agreed."

Shah Rukh Khan: I'm an over indulgent father

Shah Rukh Khan: I'm an over indulgent father

Shah Rukh Khan might be known as a doting father to his three kids but the superstar believes he indulges them more than needed.

The 50-year-old actor says he is a proud father to Aryan, 19, Suhana, 16 and toddler AbRam, who celebrated his third birthday last week.

From taking the little one to IPL matches to playing host to his daughter's friends, SRK's love for his children is not hidden from his fans and the actor says he loves to spoil the kids.

"I am a very indulgent father. In fact, I am over indulgent. I spoil them a lot," the "Fan" told reporters here at the launch of KidZania, a global indoor theme park. The Delhi/NCR branch of KidZania comes three years after Shah Rukh launched the park in Ghatkopar in Mumbai. The Bollywood star co-owns the theme park.

When asked whether AbRam is fond of rides and if the actor would bring him to KidZania, Shah Rukh said, "I think AbRam would love to come here. When I thought of making this (KidZania), I wanted to do it for my kids but by the time it got made, they grew up. So, now, I would love to get AbRam here. But first I will take him to the Ghatkopar one."

For the actor, bringing such an experience for kids to India is a matter of pride and he said this endevour stands as most special among all the ventures that he has forayed into.

"I am very proud of this. The Mumbai one has been doing great and that encouraged me to bring KidZania to Delhi/NCR.

In fact, this one is far bigger than the other park. I am sure kids and families will love it.

"Out of everything that I have ever done, this is what I am most proud of, that I have done something for children."

Shah Rukh intends to open the park in Chennai, Benguluru and of course Kolkata, a city the "Dilwale" star shares a special bond with.

"We will take it to Chennai and Benguluru and Kolkata too... The process takes time as we need a huge place and its entrance and exit should be safe for kids.

"Also training of the staff is an important task as families will leave their children with the people here. But these are long term plans which we will fulfill slowly and gradually."

Shah Rukh added he wants KidZania to be affordable for all stratas of society and has joined hands with a couple of NGOs to enable children from poor families experience KidZania.

The "Chennai Express" star arrived at the launch in style, walking the ramp with a few kids, who were dressed in their future dream avatars. He also interacted with them, answering their questions about his childhood and his dreams as a child.

During the endearing interaction, Shah Rukh revealed that as a child he wanted to become either an army officer or a teacher.

Concluding the event on a filmy note, Bollywood's romance king mouthed dialogues from his 2012 drama "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" as young girls and women cheered on and also obliged his male fans in the crowd by speaking a few lines from the teaser of his upcoming action thriller "Raees".
