The second wave of Covid-19 has hit India hard and taking into consideration all factors and safety protocols, governments have imposed a lockdown in most parts of India. Movie theatres and several other businesses have been shut in order to curb the spread of the virus. While most of the filmmakers and production houses decided not to release their films due to the ongoing situation, Salman Khan on the other hand decided to stick to his initial plans of releasing the film as per the scheduled release date.

As per the sources at Bollywood Hungama and their report, Salman spoke about the outcome of the film in terms of numbers during an interaction with a group of journalists. At the beginning of the year, things were looking better as Cinema halls had slowly opened up across the country. The second wave of Covid-19 has currently put filmmakers and movie theatres in a bad spot.

The actor realizes that releasing the film amidst the pandemic will not get him the numbers as it would have if things were normal and movie theatres across the country were running. Salman said “We would lose money on ‘Radhe‘ and box office collections could be all-time low but we are still going ahead with the film,”
Wishing Salman and the entire cast and crew of the film good luck with the release. Also, hope everyone is staying safe and keeping well. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
