The recent pandemic hit COVID-19 hasn’t spared one. The same has also affected the entertainment industry. There are chances of a full lockdown from April 15thth, that is, Thursday, in the Bollywood capital of Mumbai. This news has continued the future of all the movies that will hit big screens in the coming days in the darkness. One of those great films is Akshay Kumar’s lead actor ‘Sooryavanshi’.
The film was all set to hit the big screens for the next 24 hoursth March only. But the recent rise in the number of COVID-19 cases, in addition to lockdown and other factors, has delayed the release date. So, along with several other movies, Rohit Shetty’s directed ‘Sooryavanshi’, his second movie in his Cop universe, is also considering a much safer option to release the movie, namely OTT release.
‘Sooryavanshi’ movie: cast
The prominent actors you could see in the movie are Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar as the lead roles. You could also witness superstar Ajay Devgan and Ranveer Singh in unique roles.
‘Sooryavanshi’ movie: OTT or theater?
According to the sources, there is nothing specific as of now. But one thing is certain: alternatives should be available. So if the cinemas don’t open or the people haven’t appeared in theaters because of the recent increase in coronavirus cases, it shouldn’t affect the future of the movie.
In addition, the alternatives can be SVOD, which is a video-on-demand, or the TVOD / PPV, which is pay-per-view. Keeping a safer option is therefore the question of the time. Even the makers aren’t ready to postpone the release dates further; if the prevailing conditions are present, they opt for a digital platform to release the film.
Akshay Kumar also confirmed that whether the film is chosen for a digital or theatrical release will not be affected. Regardless, no release dates for OTT have currently been set.
