Sooryavanshi to release on Holi 2021, before Ranveer Singh’s ’83?
The makers are currently testing the waters with the release of Tamil star Vijay’s Master after which they will decide on releasing either Sooryavanshi or ’83 in the Holi week.
The pandemic situation has hit the movies very hard, many movies got delayed because of the shutdown of the theatres while others choose to release them on the OTT platforms. The viewers are anticipating the release of two big films, Ranveer Singh‘s film ’83 and Akshay’s Sooryavanshi in theatres this year. There’s a lot that still needs clarification and patience including whether the audience is going back to the theatres or not. Although the makers of both films are confident that both the films will be crucial in bringing back the audience to the theatres after the pandemic scare.
In the latest interview with Mid-day, Reliance Entertainment group CEO Shibasish Sarkar mentioned that they are keen to release one of the two films on Holi this year. He said that even though there’s still time to see the good old days in theatres again, they are seeking a positive change soon after which they will decide on releasing either ’83 or Sooryavanshi on big screens.
The Reliance Group CEO was quoted saying, “A section of people headed to theatres to watch Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984 that was encouraging sign. So, now, we are looking at bringing one of the films in the third week of March, during Holi.
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer was anyway scheduled to hit the screens in March last year, so it’s likely that they go with Sooryavanshi as their first pick. Sarkar commenting on releasing the Rohit Shetty directional first, Sarkar said, “We were supposed to release Sooryavanshi on March 24, and ’83 in April. If we follow the same sequence, Sooryavanshi should come first.
“We are waiting for the January 13 release as the makers are also relying big on the release of Tamil star Vijay’s movie Master. There are four to five big releases in Tamil and Telugu cinema. There is a huge amount of confidence in the makers and the audience,” said Sarkar.
