But just a few days Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi and Ranveer Singh’s 83 was announced for a Diwali & Christmas release. Now it is said that another big budget film is all set to join the Theatrical release for nexf year. It is none other than David Dhawan’s Varun Dhawan & Sara Ali Khan starrer Coolie No. 1.
A souce revealed that, “The makers had multiple meetings over the last few weeks and everyone unanimously felt that David Dhawan’s 45th directorial should arrive on the big screen. In tough times like this, comedy is something that will bring the audience to the cinema hall and make them forget all the grief. It’s a family entertainer warrants community viewing.”
“The idea is to bring in the New Year with laughter. Varun’s Mr. Lele, which has been shelved, was initially eyeing the New Year release, and now that slot will be taken over by Coolie No. 1. That’s the target for now, however it all depends on the on-ground scenario. Even though Sooryavanshi and 83 have announced their release dates, there lies a strong possibility of a delay in both the films if the cases keep on increasing. It’s all tentative for now,” added the source.
The information from the source also stated that, “They were flooded with offers from OTT platforms, including Hotstar and Amazon. But David Dhawan is a believer of big screen entertainment, and put his foot down. He has the final call on every decision related to the film, and the team also were on the same page of releasing it in theatres.”
