Reliance CEO Shibasish Sarkar On Latest Reports Of Sooryavanshi Release



Akshay Kumar-sooryavanshi

A  news report  earlier this week  claims sources at  Reliance have  revealed  15 August as  the latest  release date for the long-delayed  Rohit Shetty-directed  Akshay Kumar-starrer Sooryavanshi.

 However Shibasish Sarkar, CEO  of  Reliance Entertainment  debunks the latest release date  as  yet some more wishful thinking.

Says  Sarkar, “In the last 18 months I am supposed to have released Sooryavanshi at least ten  times. Rohit Shetty  is shooting  Khatron Ke Khiladi outside India. Once he’s back in  India we will sit  down  together and discuss  the release.”

 Any plans  to release  films in theatres  would at this  moment appear  premature if not foolhardy, as there is  no clarity on  the  government’s  stance  regarding the re-opening of movie theatres. Even if they were  to reopen in July(as sources  suggest) getting audiences  to return to movie  theatres won’t be an easy task.

Given the scenario , filmmakers who are keen to release  films in movie theatres have adopted the wait-and watch policy for now.

The will-it-won’t-it see-saw  over the film’s release has been going on  for  the last  three months ever since  the  lockdown  

 Directed  by the  redoubtable  Rohit Shetty   whose Golmaal  is the most  successful Bollywood franchise  of  all times, Sooryavanshi  , an  action-packed   cops-and-robbers  drama brings  together  one of  Bollywood’s most successful directors  with Akshay Kumar for  the  first time. The  two have shot the  most dearth-defying jaw-dropping  stunt scenes   which, according to the film’s director, will go to waste on the  home-viewing medium. For  the  film’s climactic hijinks  the director has  roped  in  Ajay Devgan and Ranveer Singh to join Akshay.
