A few hours ago, we brought to you the news about change in dates of the movies Angrezi Medium, RoohiAfzana and Gunjan Saxena. Irrfan Khan starrer Angrezi Medium will now release on March 13. Janhvi Kapoor starrer Gunjan Saxena to be released on April 24. Whereas Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer Roohi Afzana has been pushed to June 5 release.
Hence the makers of Sooryavanshi have changed their date of release keeping in mind that there’s no release on March 20.
Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi was supposed to hit the theatres on March 27. But now the release of even the Rohit Shetty directorial has undergone a change. A source close to the film said, “The makers of Sooryavanshi are releasing the film on March 25. It’s a Wednesday and a part-holiday on account of Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra. Most parts of the country obviously won’t celebrate this festival and yet, the makers feel that the movie can get an earth-shattering opening. The content is very massy and they are confident that audiences are looking forward to seeing Akshay Kumar in a Rohit Shetty style flick. Hence, they felt it’s just fair to arrive a little early and make use of the open window. They also want to accumulate as much earnings as possible before another juggernaut, ’83, releases on April 10.”
The source adds, “Maddock Films and Jio Studios, the producers of Angrezi Medium, have been apprised of the plans of Sooryavanshi’s change of release date and from what we have heard, they are fine with the decision. They are happy that the Irrfan Khan-starrer will get a clear 12-day window and they also hope that the film will get moviegoers in cinemas after Sooryavanshi’s release as well.”
