Ghai said, "I wanted to release it on 15th Aug because of a patriotic flavor to the love story of Kaanchi.
"Since there are two big releases on Eid - Shah Rukh Khan's 'Chennai Express' and Akshay Kumar's 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2', the single screens will be playing them for two weeks plus there are two other releases on 23rd, so I decided for 30th Aug as Kaanchi being a mass as well as class film will need multiplex and single screens both. And I am too happy and excited about the film I am shooting at present."
Ghai is making Kaanchi with new leads, along with veteran actors Mithun Chakroborthy and Rishi Kapoor.
"Having a new cast has given me a huge responsibility as well as happiness that is as good as when I was making Hero (1983) or Karma (1986)," he said.
"I know that people are really waiting for a big film from me with wholesome entertainment for every section of audience.
"Kaanchi has a great story with a message and fun and drama combined and great music to cherish," the filmmaker said.
"I have recorded four songs by Ismail Darbar and Salim Suleman on the lyrics of Irshad Kamil and I can say today that it's going to be a big, blockbuster, music album on the day it will be released.
"My new heroine (Mishti) has done a fantastic job to take over the first row among stars of today. It's a larger-than-life film and production both and I am waiting for 30th August to show it to my audience," said Ghai.
