After 7 long months of lockdown, the theaters have finally resumed business and the exhibitors can begin showcasing films again.
The films have already lined up. Salman Khan has wrapped up work on Radhe and Rohit Shetty‘s next with Akshya Kumar titled Sooryavanshi is completely ready.
A source says “Both of them are looking at the Republic Day weekend to release their films. But they are still unsure how to go about it.“
Akshaye Rathi explains Pinkvilla that a clash between these movies is not going to happen in the near future. He says “We are allowed to run only on 50% occupancy which already makes the viewing limited for big films which open to higher occupancies. Films like Radhe, Sooryavanshi, 83 would have opened up anyway over an 80% occupancy all across the country. So a clash would mean division of those 50% seats and that is not a feasible idea at all.“
The source added “The industry too knows it. Either Sooryavanshi or Radhe will come on the R-Day weekend, and the other might hit screens on Holi next year, which is again a festival date. From now on, clashes won’t happen between big films till situation gets better. Also, every big film will have a two week clean release window as well.”
So, this is a good news for all the movie lovers as there will be no clash between these most awaited of Akshay and Salman.
