After much delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, makers of ‘Sooryavanshi’ are reportedly looking at a digital release for the film.
According to Box Office Worldwide, the rise in coronavirus cases in Maharashtra could force Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar to release ‘Sooryavanshi’ on a digital platform.
A source was cited in the publication saying, “If either cinemas don’t open or corona impact increases manifold ….and audiences are not coming….Or in some states theatres open and in some states they won’t….in those scenarios we will have to explore all options.. Either pure VOD (video on demand) routes. Or TVOD / PPV (pay per view) routes like what the makers of Mulan are planning. Or part theatrical/ part TVOD. Or in some state/ countries theatrical and some state digital….Basically we will not like to shift release date further….and ideally look for theatrical or any other hybrid measure for the best possible release.”
‘Sooryavanshi’ stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
