Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif is has been the talk of the town for the past couple of weeks owing to its release date. The film is finally set to release on April 2 after a prolonged delay due to Coronavirus pandemic.
The makers of the film have been in discussion with national multiplex chains – PVR, INOX, CINEPOLIS and Carnival regarding the release of the film. But it seems both didn’t agree on certain terms and the film will release only in single screens and non-national multiplexes.
Amidst these reports, ace filmmaker Rohit Shetty has opted out of his deal of exclusivity with Reliance Entertainment. According to SpotboyE, a source close to the development revealed, “So far Rohit Shetty and Reliance Entertainment were partners in all the films that he directed. But now Rohit will direct films in partnership with outside producers.”
Going by the reports, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer will be last film Reliance-Shetty co-production. Thereafter, the filmmaker can work with other producers if he so wishes.
While the film is said to be released in single screens, another report claims that it will also be released on OTT platform simultaneously. However, the makers have not made any official confirmation yet. So it should be taken as a pinch of salt.
