One of the big budget films that has been making rounds on the internet since the past one year is Rohit Shetty‘s Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif. The makers kept postponing the release date of the film due to the pandemic and looks like we finally have a date now! As per the latest reports, Sooryavanshi is scheduled to release a day after Diwali i.e November 5, 2021.
As per a report on Bollywood Hungama, a close source revealed-
The film releases on November 5, that is, a day after Diwali. Earlier, the norm was that a Diwali release would release on the day of Diwali. But the collections get affected that day as people are busy with puja and other activities. The post-Diwali day is a holiday and it can lead to record collections. In recent times, Happy New Year (2014), Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015), Golmaal Again (2017), directed by Rohit Shetty, Thugs Of Hindostan (2018) etc released on the post-Diwali day. And all these films had earth-shattering opening day collections.
The decision by the Sooryavanshi makers is correct. The film has maintained the hype despite the numerous delays. It is sure to open in a huge way, despite the pandemic restrictions. A huge opening day would make waves and would give a strong message that Bollywood is back with a bang. That’ll be possible only if Sooryavanshi comes out on November 5. Releasing on Diwali day would not help achieve that since the earnings would be limited.
I super excited to watch Sooryavanshi in the theatres, can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in all his upcoming projects.
