Prabhudheva and Tamannaah Bhatias Khamoshi, which was slated to release on May 31, will now open on June 14. The makers have pushed the date to avoid a clash with "Devi 2".

Directed by Chakri Toleti, the film stars Tamannaah as a deaf-mute and Prabhu Deva as the antagonist. Bhumika Chawla, best known for Tere Naam opposite Salman Khan, will also be seen in a pivotal role.

The step was taken so that both the movies can enjoy equal box office success, read a statement.

Saurabh Mishra of PYX Film said that June 14 was the "best option for us and was a collective decision taken by the cast and our distributors".

"When Tamannaah and Prabhudheva suggested the change we instantly agreed to it as we did not want the audience to choose between two movies with the same actors. It was a better alternative," he added.

According to the Deccan Chronicle, Khamoshi is the first-ever feature in India to be filmed with an 8k camera.

"Devi 2", a horror comedy, is a sequel to the 2016 film "Devi". The film features Prabhudheva, Tamannaah, Nandita Swetha, Dimple Hayati, Kovai Sarala, RJ Balaji and Saptagiri.
