Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film ‘Sooryavanshi’ starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif is being lined-up for a release in January 2021 to mark India Republic Day.
The film, which has been impacted due to the coronavirus pandemic, was initially due for release in March 2020. However, it will now be shifted to early next year subject to the current situation.
Talking to a leading publication, a source said, “No one can promise a release date at this point of time, but Reliance, Rohit Shetty and Akshay Kumar are tentatively eyeing the Republic Day weekend now for Sooryavanshi. While there were initial chatters of Sooryavanshi on Christmas and 83 on Republic Day, it was eventually decided that if a theatrical release is possible in December, it’s best to not move the release date of 83 once again.”
The source added, “The idea is to take a decision that is in the best interest of both the films, and the current target is to release both of them before March next year. Though the window to release Sooryavanshi is between January and March but if 83 releases and fairs as well as expected on Christmas, 26 January is confirmed preposition for Sooryavanshi. With cinema halls reopening, the dates are more locked for both the films now, until and unless we have some bad surprises in stores in terms of the covid 19 scenario to ruin all plans.”
