Just yesterday, we told you about how the makers of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif‘s Sooryavanshi had pushed the release of their film due to the global Coronavirus outburst. It is unsafe for audiences to visit crowded spaces like theatres during this time, hence the decision. Similarly, the makers of Jayeshbhai Jordaar and ToofaanYash Raj Films and Excel Entertainment — have decided to push their films as well.

Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, who headline Excel Entertainment, announced the news about delaying the release of their film, Toofaan that stars Farhan. Aditya Chopra, who is producing Jayeshbhai Jordaar starring Ranveer Singh, is releasing the film on 2nd October now, while Toofaan will release on the 18th of September 2020.

Toofaan was about a boxer, headlined by Farhan and directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Jayeshbhai Jordaar, directed by debutante Divyang Thakkar on the other hand, has Ranveer playing a Gujarati man from Ahmedabad which follows his extraordinary story.

These super exciting films starring our favourite stars aren’t supposed to be missed, and in the current situation, we would have lost out on it if it were to release now. We are glad they are going to release in a time where everything is hopefully back to normal.
