OTT has ensured giving the much-required entertainment to the audience amid pandemic. But no one can deny the fact that watching a movie in the cinema hall is an unbeatable experience. It has been almost 6 months now that we haven’t seen any film in theatres. In Bollywood, Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi was all set to release and then COVID- 19 came in.
Just a few days back we asked people on Twitter if they will watch Akshay Kumar & Katrina Kaif’s Sooryavanshi in theatres if it releases on Diwali. And 53% responded as yes.

So yes, most of the people right now are longing to watch films in cinemas. And if you are a data-driven person, you have an example of Tenet which had an international release last week and got an opening of $53 million. That’s a very good number considering the film wasn’t released in some of the major countries like the US, China and even India.
Now we come to India. There are 3 major films which are expected to release first if theatres open this year. Sooryavanshi, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai & ’83 are the films. We asked people to vote for their most awaited film among these three and the results are out.
Interestingly, the poll got an excellent response as close to 13k users participated. And the winner among all was Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. The Prabhudheva directorial starring Disha Patani in lead along with Salman got 50% + votes. With 40.5% votes, Sooryavanshi followed and Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone starrer ’83 got 9.3% votes. Have a look at the results below:
