Malayalam films push their release dates due to the theatre shut down in the state

The Coronavirus outbreak is severely affecting the film industry. From Hollywood to Bollywood, all the filmmakers are planning to postpone the releases of their films. Because of the Coronavirus outbreak, the people are not visiting the theatres. Meanwhile, the Kerala government has ordered to shut down the theatres till March 31st as 14 people across the state tested positive for the virus. Thus, the films scheduled for release for the next two weeks have postponed their arrival.

 
The biggest film which got affected the most is Mohanlal's historical epic drama Marakkar: Arabikkadalinte Simham. Directed by Priyadarshan, this film features Keerthy Suresh, Manju Warrier, Arjun Sarja and Prabhu in the other important roles. The film is actually supposed to hit the screens on March 26, but it now got postponed due to the theatres shut down.
 
Young actor Tovino Thomas's new film Kilometers and Kilometers was actually supposed to hit the screens today. Meanwhile, Anaswara Rajan's movie Vaanku was initially slated for a March 13 release. Both the films postponed their releases now.
 
The government of Kerala wants to control mass gatherings. The government might extend the ban in the shutting down of the theatres but there is no clarity on the same. If the theatres remain closed for more days, it is a problem for big films.
 
On the flip side, Mammootty's upcoming political thriller 'One' aimed for an April first week release. Now, the makers are planning to push the release to April's first-week release. Now, the makers are planning to push the release to April end. The new release dates of these will get announced soon.
