After the Covid-19 attack across the globe, the film’s release has been postponed indefinitely as the director Rohit Shetty was firm on his decision to release in theatres despite getting huge offers from OTT platforms.
Today, he met Maha CM along with Jayanthilal Gada of Pen Studios and requested to open theatres in the state. CM has assured to open theatres from 22nd October with strict covid norms.
Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif starrer Sooryavanshi is confirmed for the grand Diwali release. Akki has released Bell Bottom recently but it didn’t collect as anticipated. More than 80% of collections for Bollywood will alone come from Maharashtra and it is key for Bollywood.
