(image) Mumbai: Makers of soon-to-be-released `Patiala House` have decided to replace their initial posters featuring only Rishi Kapoor and Akshay Kumar, with those including leading lady Anushka Sharma after the box-office success of `Band Baja Baraat`, for marketing and promotions.
According to sources, the initial posters to be released were to focus only on Rishi Kapoor and Akshay Kumar who play father-son in the movie.
The film is about father-son relationship. The story is based in Southall London where the Kahlon family has been living for the past four generations. Ruled by an autocratic and stubborn patriarch Bauji the members of this household have no other choice but to adhere to his ways, his rules and his philosophy.
The filmmakers wanted to portray the same in their first key art poster for their audiences. So they finalised that the poster will feature Rishi Kapoor and Akshay Kumar in order to give an insight about the film and the relationship they share. The poster was all set to be launched but then `Band Baaja Baraat` released and saw a huge success.
The makers of Patiala House decided that Anushka too should feature in the poster. As a result, interestingly now the final poster features Anushka Sharma along with Akshay.
Director Nikhil Advani said, "Anushka is a good actress and we are happy that she is a part of Patiala House. She has proved her talent and charm in her recent hit as well. So all in all, its going to be a good experience in Patiala House. We were always planning on multiple posters which are out for the audiences."
