Salman Khan had recently wrapped up his shoot for the movie Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. This Prabhudeva-directed venture also includes Disha Patani, Jackie Shroff and Randeep Hooda. It will hit the big screen on Eid 2021.
The release date has been postponed by seven months. As reported by Mid-day, the new release date was decided during a meeting on Monday that saw the superstar and co-producers Atul Agnihotri, Sohail Khan and Nikhil Namit in attendance.
According to the reports of Mid-day, a source has mentioned that they were considering setting the new release date around 26th January 2021 but “they were discouraged by the low footfall in theatres ever since they reopened at 50 percent capacity in several states. Considering Radhe is a big-budget movie, the makers calculated that it will earn in the ballpark of Rs 120 crore if released in the current circumstances. Taking this into account, the entire team — including its worldwide distributors Yash Raj Films — felt it would be wise to release it on May 12, 2021, thus keeping Salman’s tradition of Eid offerings alive.”
Trade analyst Atul Mohan said, “It’s prudent to release Radhe on Eid next year. Internationally, the makers of Fast & Furious too have pushed Fast 9 by a year.”
