Christopher Nolan’s Tenet will soon hit Indian cinemas. The film obtained a censor certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on August 13. Isn’t that fantastic news?
Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, cinema halls across India have been shut for the safety of the public. Now that the Christopher Nolan directorial has received it censor certification, the big question is when it will have its theatrical release? Read on to know what we have found out.
As per a report in Bollywood Hungama, Warner Bros India is all set to release Tenet in the country. A source close to the studio told the portal, “The CBFC has given a U/A certificate and hasn’t asked for any visual or audio cut. This will be a treat for all the Indian fans, as often CBFC recklessly makes cuts in films. Tenet, however, is an exception!”
But when will Tenet release in India? With the COVID-19 case seeing a rise on again, there is no clarity to when theatres will finally get the green signal to open. Talking about the same, the source said, “The government has to inform. Once that happens, we’ll discuss with our cinema partners and once they get ready, we’ll announce the release date. On our part, we are completely ready and can’t wait to bring the film to cinemas in India.”
Talking about Tenet likely being the first film to release in Indian cinemas post the lockdown the source informed, “In our discussions with the exhibitors right now, it seems like it’ll be the first film to hit cinemas. However, we’ll release the film only if 70% of the country has opened theatres, especially the lucrative centres like Maharashtra, Karnataka, Delhi etc. “
The source continued, “Our apprehension is that even if the central government gives the permission to cinemas to resume operations, the government in some states might not adhere to it and continue the restriction. Also, besides Hindi, we are dubbing it in Tamil and Telugu; so we need those markets as well.”
The film released in major international markets like Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, and the United Kingdom on August 26. The John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh starrer releases in China today, September 4.
