Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif's much-awaited action film Sooryavanshi finally has a release date. The film was postponed thrice because of the pandemic and now when the theatres are open for the public in full strength, the makers of the film are all set to release it in theatres.
A source told a leading website, “ They have held back on the films’ release for almost a year and we're always committed to bring it in the cinema halls. However, it’s an expensive film and no one wants to release it in a manner that results in a loss of income. It’s time for the multiplexes as well to understand the plight of team Sooryavanshi. Since multiplexes are not agreeing to the terms put forth by Rohit Shetty, and Reliance, team Sooryavanshi has finally decided to release the film in the cinema halls on April 2. However, the catch here is, he would bring the film only in the single screens and non-national multiplex chains, and bypass the big five national chains of PVR, INOX, Cinepolis and Carnival."
Rohit Shetty, who has directed the film, cannot wait any longer to release his cop drama on big screens. "If he wants to bring the film on April 2, the campaign needs to begin. However, the negotiations so far have not gone any further from the day of starting, and hence, the team has decided to bypass that release for now, and explore other routes. If multiplexes agree on giving better terms within the next week, the film will arrive on the big screen all across India, or else, it would be just a single screen and non-national chain release," added the source.
