Ever since the Holi release of Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey has been announced, talks have started for several big ticket releases. The latest we hear about Prabhas’s Radhe Shyam, Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, Jr NTR-Ram Charan’s RRR, and many more.
The recent spike in Covid cases has resulted in the closure of cinemas in several Indian states. As a result, Shahid KapoorKey Jersey called for a postponement. Soon after, SS Rajamouli’s RRR also delayed their release till normalcy returned. And then, as expected, the makers of Radheshyam also decided to wait. Apart from all these stalwarts, several other films also decided to slow down the state restrictions.
Now, as per a report in Pinkvilla, the talks about the release dates have started once again as the cases of Kovid have started slowing down. Filmmakers are well aware that the 50% occupancy rule will remain in place after the closure of theatres. As Spider-Man: No Way Home and Pushpa did an amazing job despite the engagement restrictions, many filmmakers are now ready to take their films to the theatres. Radhe Shyam will reportedly be the first to come out.
It is learned that the makers are targeting Valentine’s Day for its release in view of the love saga starring Prabhas and Pooja Hegde. While Valentine’s Day is the first priority, talks are on to release the film in March, and it certainly won’t go ahead. The makers are reportedly in talks with the government and exhibitors from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu on the COVID scenario. These circuits will earn the bulk of the business for this Prabhas starrer.
Another big film is Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha. As we mentioned earlier, the makers are not ready to clash with KGF Chapter 2 (April 14), and are now eyeing a date two weeks after Eid. The interesting thing is that if this happens then one can say that Aamir This time Salman Khan will start the Eid season. However, two big films- Ajay Devgn’s Runway 34 and Tiger Shroff’s Heropanti 2 are already releasing on Eid, thus creating another conflict scenario for LSC.
RRR is also reportedly being closed for Eid release. But with several releases already booked for the festive season, the second option in the discussion is the second half of March. The makers of Jersey and Prithviraj are yet to decide on their final release dates.
