The release of Harshvardhan Kapoor-starrer Bhavesh Joshi Superhero has been delayed to June 1, the production house 'Phantom Films' announced on Wednesday, as a result of which the vigilante film will be clashing with sister Sonam Kapoor's Veere Di Wedding.

The Vikramaditya Motwane directorial had been scheduled to release on May 25, while the release date of Veere Di Wedding had been fixed as June 1 since January 12 this year.

According to reports, the makers decided to delay the release of Bhavesh Joshi Superhero as June 1 is a better date from a 'distributional point of view' as with the previous release date the film would have clashed with John Abraham-starrer 'Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran'.

Harshvardhan was last seen in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's romantic film Mirzya in 2016 where he made his debut with Saiyami Kher, and but the film did not receive much success. His second film 'Bhavesh Joshi Superhero' is an entirely different genre. The lead of the movie, Harshvardhan said in the past said that despite looking like a superhero film, it is not one.
