On another note, the film industry is set to incur unprecedented losses due to the nationwide lockdown announced by the government of India to curb the growing spread of coronavirus in the country. However, producers and trade pundits are putting their trust in the release of two big films hoping that they will bring some magic and makeup for the losses incurred in these months. Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi and Ranveer Singh’s ’83 were two big-budget anticipated dramas that were set to hit the screens in March and April, respectively.
After COVID-19 hit the country, the makers postponed the release of these films indefinitely and said they will decide on the date once normalcy returns. Now, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Shibasish Sarkar, the CEO of Reliance Entertainment Pictures, reveals that Sooryavanshi and ’83 will be the first two films to release in India after the tough times are over.
Ranveer has been gearing up for Kabir Khan’s ’83, which traces India’s historic victory at the 1983 cricket World Cup. While Ranveer portrays the team’s captain Kapil Dev, Deepika plays his wife Romi. The film is presented by Reliance Entertainment and was scheduled to release on April 10 this year in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
