A number of Bollywood filmmakers these days opted to release their movies on OTT platforms as the theatres are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. A number of films like Gulabo Sitabo, Choked, Chintu Ka Birthday, Ghoomketu, Maska, Mrs. Serial Killer and a few others went the OTT platform way. But now it seems like there is some relief for the multiplexes and theatres as some of the upcoming films like Sooryavanshi and Ranveer Singh starrer 83 will have a theatrical release.
Things had started to get intense when it was announced by Mahesh Bhatt that he will also be releasing Sadak 2 on an OTT platform as he did not have a better option. Even Akshay Kumar announced that Laxxmi Bomb, which is also one of the most awaited films of 2020, will also be releasing online.
Despite the current situation, some of the filmmakers continue to be keen on maintaining a stance and keeping their films for a theatrical release. It came as a relief for the owners of multiplexes and single screen theatres when makers of 83 and Soorvavanshi decided to go the theatre way.
The release date of the films have not yet been announced but Sooryavanshi will be released during Diwali while 83 will be released by Christmas.
