Bollywood’s comeback has ended before it started. Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi which was supposed to be the first biggie coming this year from Bollywood has been postponed. The movie was earlier announced for April 30th.
There is a Lockdown-like situation in Maharashtra where the Hindi cinema is based and so, the makers have decided to postpone the film indefinitely. More films are going to follow the suit sooner or later. There are rumors that the movie may skip its theatrical release and opt for an online release.
This is likely to happen to many Bollywood biggies in the coming months. Only a miracle can save the industry and the theatrical business in the North from here. India’s daily COVID-19 caseload has touched One Lakh and around half of them are coming from Maharashtra only.Follow @THEPANIPURI
