Shibasish Sarkar, CEO of Reliance Entertainment has shot down reports stating that the long-awaited Akshay Kumar-Rohit Shetty starrer Sooryavanshi would release on April 2.
Reacting sharply to the report Sarkar says, “The release is not yet decided…It seems apart from me and Rohit Shetty(the producers of Sooryavanshi) every journalist and media outlet is behaving like the producer.”
Further probing reveals that the release date for Sooryavanshi as also Reliance Entertainment’s other premium project ’83 are now under consideration.
A source very close to one of the two projects tells me. “It’s all very well for the false sense of Covid-free bonhomie being created around public recreational places. The fact is, the pandemic is not yet gone, and attendance in movie theatres is still very restricted. Any attempt to pull the audience back into theatres at this juncture is premature.”
