The government has uplifted the strict bans on the cinema halls. There were many movies which were waiting for a big screen release. Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi was one of them. The film was expected to release on Diwali. However, now what it seems like is makers are nit very sure of its scheduled release. The film is produced by Reliance Entertainment and the decision of withholding the release is theirs. They reasoned to keep the release date undecided because they want to watch audience’s response to the cinemas and movies.
Sooryavanshi not releasing on Diwali
The decision of relaxing the restrictions on cinemas was announced by the Ministry of Home Affairs on Wednesday. Approximately 10 highly awaited Bollywood and Hollywood are preparing their theatrical release now. However, the CEO of Reliance Entertainment, Shibasish Sarkar, has confirmed that they will not take any decision for the movie’s release hastily. This decision has been made by them because there is no assuity of the cinemas getting head start in all the states. As Bollywood is specifically based in Mumbai, Maharashtra, they do not want to jump to decisions in a hurry. Shibasish told Times of India, “Theatres aren’t reopening in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu either. So, we shall wait and watch before deciding the release of 83 and Sooryavanshi. Look, even if theatres open in all states by November 1, we can’t release such a big film, doing only 15 days of promotion.”
He added, “Some film will definitely release in December. We shall watch the proceedings. We will know how many people came to see it. And who knows where Corona stands in India in December or November? What if cases are still high?”
Statement by Rohit Shetty Picturez:
One of the producers of the movie, Rohit Shetty Picturez shared in March, “We have been as excited as you are to present the film to you and your family, but due to the recent outburst of the COVID – 19 (Coronavirus), we, the makers, have decided to postpone the release of your film Sooryavanshi, keeping in mind the health and safety of our beloved audience… And therefore, Sooryavanshi will be back for you just when the time is right… After all, safety comes first… Until then, keep the excitement alive, take good care of yourself and stay strong… We shall pull through this…” The film was initially expected to get the release on March 24.
