It is unlikely  that we  will see Amitabh Bachchan in  any film this year.  While three  of them were  scheduled for release in 2020, all three stand  indefinitely postponed as  of now.

 Shoojit Sircar’s  Amitabh Bachchan -Ayushmann Khurrana  starrer Gulabo Sitabo was to release  on  April 18 and  the  Nagraj Manjule –directed  football drama  Jhund on 8 May. But now because  of the  viral pandemic  both  the  releases stand postponed . Sources close to both the projects say  the  new dates are  unlikely to  be decided until  the Corona scare is  over.

As  for  the  long-delayed Karan  Johar-produced  Brahmastra, given the  circumstances, it is highly unlikely to make it for its December release.

Interestingly   the Amitabh Bachchan ’s  first release  foe 2020 AB Ani CD in Marathi was released and then pulled out of theatres when the virus  broke out.

Says a  source  close to the   Amitabh Bachchan , “It’s a chaotic situation  for all. Amitji has four releases(three in Hindi one  in Marathi) this year and none of it  may make  it into  theatres. He also has  a couple of delayed shootings  including Rumi Jaffrey’s Chehre, to complete.  But he  won’t be back to shoot immediately once the viral threat ends.  Because  of his various  serious illnesses  Amitji’s immunity system  is  unusually low. He cannot risk an infection.”
