Read on to check out the other three films that will also hit the theatres and also find out the ones that won’t see a theatrical release inspite of being OTT releases during lockdown
With the theatres ready to open doors tomorrow (October 15) across several Indian cities following the shutdown due to the coronavirus global pandemic, 6 Bollywood films are being re-released for fans who may have missed out watching the big ticket releases in the theatres earlier. And it’s good news for movie-goers as many more expected to join this list of re-releases.
These six films that are setting the ball rolling for re-releases are Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s action thriller War, Sushant Singh Rajput – Sara Ali Khan starrer Kedarnath, Ajay Devgn – Saif Ali Khan’s period drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero, Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani’s Malang, as well as Taapsee Pannu’s Thappad.
However, several films that were directly released on the digital platforms may not make the cut for a theatrical release. Biggies including Vidya Balan’s Shakuntala Devi, late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s swan song Dil Bechara, Alia Bhatt-Sanjay Dutt’s Sadak 2, Vidyut Jammwal’s action-caper Khuda Haafiz, Janhavi Kapoor’s Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl and Amitabh Bachchan’s Gulabo Sitabo that were premiered on OTT platforms following the lockdown will not be releasing in theatres.
The theatres, that will reopen post a 7-month lockdown period, will have to adhere to strict COVID-19 precautionary rules including one-seat distancing, 50 per cent capacity, wearing masks, proper ventilation and controlled air conditioner temperatures set above 23 degrees.
