Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi is still waiting for the theaters to reopen. The much awaited film was supposed to release way back in March 2020, however that didn’t happen thanks to the global pandemic. It was expected that Rohit Shetty will release prime project in Diwali this year. However, even if the Governmnet has allowed to reopen the cinema halls from 15th of this month it seems the Sooryavanshi will not run in the rat race.
According to the information one of the producers of the film, Reliance Entertainment’s CEO Shibasish Sarkar has clarified that the film is not going to release anytime soon.
Talking to the media Shibasish, said, “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 also revealed that the team will wait and see how the other films do at the boxoffice. “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?” he added.
In March, when Sooryavanshi was postponed the makers had said, “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.”
