‘Sooryavanshi’ was supposed to release on March 24. However, after the first phase of lockdown was announced, the makers of the film postponed the film indefinitely. Although there was a great demand for the movie to be released on the digital platforms, Rohit Shetty had confirmed that the movie will be released in the theatres only.
Kabir Khan’s ‘’83’ too waited patiently to decide on its fate and have finally opted for December release which is usually the time when Aamir Khan releases his movies.
Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif will be seen sharing screen space yet again after films like, ‘Namaste London’ and ‘Welcome’. The Kapil Dev biopic, on the other hand, will have Ranveer Singh playing the role of the cricketer while Deepika Padukone will be seen essaying the role of his onscreen wife Romi Dev. The actress is also co-producing the movie.
While the announcement has come from the multiplexes, the news is yet to be confirmed by the filmmakers and the actors.
