The widespread ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has not only been affecting the economy of so many countries but is also making a huge damage to the film industry as well.
The releases of all the movies got postponed because of the country lockdown. All the ongoing film shootings also got halted. Due to Coronavirus, all the film studios, theatres are shut down. From star hero films to debutante's films, all the film releases got postponed. After staying in lockdown for 2 months, the government has been slowly giving some relaxations in the lockdown rules and guidelines. Most of the film shootings might also go back to the sets soon. However, the movie units should follow some mandatory guidelines to ensure safety. As per the latest reports, the government is going to relax the lockdown slowly in various phases. Soon, the cinema theatres across the nation may reopen in August. If everything goes well, we can expect to watch some new releases starting in September this year.
However, all we can do is hope for things to get better and everything going back to normal. On the other hand, a couple of films decided to opt for direct OTT releases instead of theatrical releases.
