Posted Tue Feb 26, 2008 at 06:30 AM PST by Peter Bracke

Bollywood fans will have to wait a little longer for the high-def release of 'Saawariya,' which Sony says will now hit Blu-ray this May, two months later than expected.

As previously reported, Sony had originally set a March 15 arrival for 'Saawariya,' day-and-date with the standard-def DVD. The studio has now set a new date of May 6 for both versions for 'Saawariya.'

Presented on a BD-50 dual-layer disc, the next-gen edition will include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and Hindi and English dub Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround options.

Supplements are fairly minimal, with only a "Making the Music" featurette and a "Premiere Night" montage of press kit footage included.

As previously announced, Sony has set a suggested retail for the Blu-ray of $38.95.
