Sooryavanshi exhibitors have demanded 100 per cent screen space at the theatres to which theatres owners have given a big thumbs up. We wonder if makers of Antim and Eternals will postpone the release date
It was recently announced by the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, that the theatres in the state will be reopened from October 22 this year. The filmmakers are rushing to announce the release date of their upcoming projects. Rohit Shetty immediately announced the date of release of his most anticipated film Sooryavanshi. He took to his Instagram account and dropped a photo with the CMO Uddhav Thackrey while he announced the date of release of Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi. Sooryavanshi is scheduled to release during Diwali, on November 5 to be precise.
As the theatres were closed for more than 18 months, the filmmakers were on the roll to announce the release dates. As a result, we witnessed a clash of the release dates of several films. Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi and Mahesh Manjrekar’s Antim: The Final Truth had clashed with each other. Now, as per of one the leading news portal, the makers of Sooryavanshi have started calling up theatre owners to tell them that their film will not share screens with any other movie releasing on the same date. Interestingly, the theatre owners have nodded a yes to the makers.

The leading distributor Sunil Wadhwa, who is distributing Sooryavanshi in the Bombay Circuit while talking to a leading daily said that they welcome the decision of the Maharashtra State Government to reopen cinemas and it has given them immense pleasure to announce the most awaited film of the year Sooryavanshi as a Diwali release for not only the exhibitors but also for the moviegoers who were waiting for a big tentpole film.
