With so many announcements upcoming for films going straight to OTT platforms, there was a strong rumour that Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ could very well be one of them. However, it’s now emerged that the makers may not be looking to release online.

“The film’s budget is approximately `400 crore as it has been shot at different foreign locations. The unit had to use helicopters, had high-action scenes and was shot in plush locations all across, as director Rohit Shetty never compromises with locations and its budget,” said a source, as quoted by Deccan Chronicle.

It’s thought that cinemas within the sub-continent are not likely to open anytime soon. The source adds, “Owing to the fear of coronavirus, it is expected that people may refrain entering places such as the movie theatres. But we are wishing that everything goes well and Sooryavanshi releases soon as it’s a film scrupulously made for theatres only”.

The films reunites Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif and will be special appearances by Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh.
