Rajisha Vijayan's Kho Kho withdrawn from theatres due to Covid

Malayalam actress Rajisha Vijayan made her debut in Tamil with director Mari Selvaraj's Karnan, which released on April 9. She was paired opposite Dhanush in the film and received an overwhelming response from the critics and audience alike. Barely a week after Karnan, Rajisha Vijayan's Malayalam film Kho Kho hit the theatres on April 14, on the occasion of Vishnu. While the film was enjoying a good theatrical run, it has now been cut short due to the surge in Covid-19 cases in Kerala. So, the makers have decided to withdraw Kho Kho from theatres. Rajisha took to Instagram to convey the same and added that the film will be made available for the audience through another platform.

Sharing the announcement, Rajisha Vijayan wrote, "With a heavy heart we are taking the decision to withdraw Kho Kho from the theatres in Kerala due to the current COVID 19 related crisis. Even though we would have loved to have you watch our film in theatres, we have to keep the health and safety of our audience as the foremost priority. Kindly take all the necessary precautions and stay safe. Kho Kho will reach you through another platform soon. This too shall pass."
