We are in phase 2 of the pandemic, and cinema halls are shut in several parts of the country. In Maharashtra, partial weekend lockdown is implemented for the entire April month. Recently, Akshay Kumar revealed that his film Sooryavanshi won’t release this month. Salman Khan has opened up about his film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, which was expected to release on Eid this year.
To all the Bhai fans who were hoping to watch Radhe in theatres this year, we have sad news. The Bharat actor shared that due to the current situation and growing number of cases, they might push the film for the 2022 release. The actor says the film’s team is trying their best for the film to come out this Eid itself, but if the situation is still the same, that won’t happen.
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Salman Khan said, “We were going to release Radhe, we still are trying our best to release it on Eid. But if the lockdown continues, we might have to push it to the next Eid. But if it opens up, (and) the cases (drop) and people do take care of themselves. (If) they wear their masks and keep their social distance, and take good care of themselves.”
The Radhe actor shared, “(If they) Don’t go out, don’t break any of these laws (Covid-19 rules) that the government has put on us right now, I think this will die off really soon.”
The superstar further shared how if the lockdown persists, the daily wage workers will suffer again. He appealed to people to take all the precautions and follow the rules so that the virus dies down soon. Khan said, “If it happens, we will have Radhe in theatres in Eid. But, if the citizens do not follow these, it will not only be a problem for theatre-owners but also the daily wage workers.”
Salman Khan concluded, “It is just going to be a really bad one like it was earlier. Everyone should be really serious and ensure we kill this coronavirus and move on in our lives before it kills us all.”
Well, it looks like another film might not see the light in 2021 if the number of cases doesn’t go down soon!
Meanwhile, Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is directed by PrabhuDheva. The film was supposed to release last year on Eid. But it got pushed for this year and might get postponed again. The film stars Disha Patani, Jackie Shroff and Randeep Hooda. This is Khan’s second project with PrabhuDheva in the recent 2 years after Dabangg 3.
Apart from Radhe, Khan also has Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali in his hands, in which he stars alongside Pooja Hegde. The superstar will play a cop in Mahesh Manjrekar’s Antim, which is a remake of the Marathi film Mulshi Pattern. Both of the films star his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma. Khan is also said to have a special appearance in Shah Rukh Khan’s action-thriller Pathan.
