It was recently reported that Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer, Sooryavanshi will not hit the screens this Diwali despite the Centre having greenlit the reopening of theatres from October 15. Now according to a report by MidDay, it is learnt that helmer Rohit Shetty along with production house Reliance Entertainment is thinking of releasing the film over the Republic Day weekend.
The makers feel it will be an ideal time to release the film, given its theme of patriotism and anti-terrorism. While the current crisis will hopefully be under control by then, the Katrina Kaif-starrer will additionally enjoy the benefit of being the first big release of 2021. The team is currently working out the logistics.
