As soon as news of opening in cinemas in Maharashtra came out yesterday in media, YRF has announced its slate which is full of biggies. One should remember that YRF didn’t release a single film on OTT despite numerous lucrative offers.
Out of all four, Bunty Aur Babli 2 directed by Varun V. Sharma, starring Rani Mukherjee, Saif Ali Khan, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Sharvari to release on 19th November. This will be second Hindi big release after Akshay Kumar starrer Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ which was confirmed for Diwali release yesterday.
Another Akshay Kumar starrer Prithviraj directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi and also marking the debut of Manushi Chillar to release on 21st Jan 2022 targeting the big republic day holiday. This had been a successful national holiday date for Akshay Kumar in past.
Another biggie Jayeshbhai Jordaar directed by Divyang Thakkar and starring Ranveer Singh, Shalini Pandey, Ratna Pathak Shah & Boman Irani to release on 25th Feb 2022
Much awaited and long delayed due to various reason Shamshera directed by Karan Malhotra and starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt & Vaani Kapoor to release on 18th March 2022 which will mark Ranbir Kapoor’s return to big screen after a long hiatus.
Overall a massive boost to cinemas by YRF and this will also be litmus test for cinemas as these mammoth releases will be the best way to bring audience back to theaters.
