After it was announced that Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Sooryavanshi’ would be released in cinemas on 2nd April, it seems the makers and the team have had a change of heart. The latest buzz suggests that they’ve decided to postpone the film’s release.
BizAsiaLive.com had reported last week that the film’s release date fate would be a “wait and watch” situation, due to the rising cases of coronavirus in the sub-continent. A source spoke to Box Office Worldwide, “The makers of Sooryavanshi, including Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty, have jointly decided that the film should not release on April 2. The cases are increasing not just in Maharashtra now but also in other places of India. Sooryavanshi is a big-budget film and it won’t be feasible to release at a time when night curfew will be imposed in certain parts of the country”.
“Also, with the Central government allowing 100% occupancy in cinemas from February 1, everyone had hoped that by April 2, governments of all major states would also give the nod for full occupancy in theatres. But now it’s clear that it won’t happen in the near future. So it doesn’t make sense to bring the film in such a tense period,” added the source.
It’s thought there was due to be a meeting and decision made today on the film’s release.
