There is a question whether Ranveer Singh’s ‘83 is a reason behind the early release of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Sooryavanshi’. Apart from the lead couple: Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ also has Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn in cameo appearances.
After changing the release date of their film ‘Sooryavanshi’ to accommodate the release of Salman Khan’s Eid release ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’, ‘Sooryavanshi‘ team has brought about another change in its box office release date. And this time it appears that Ranveer Singh’s upcoming movie ’83’ is a reason that caused Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif starrer Sooryavanshi’s box office release preponement.
Both these movies are releasing at a gap of just two days. In the beginning there were plans to release Akshay Kumar’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ on March 27. But as per the latest updates, the movie would now, according to reports on Bollywood Hungama, will make its box office debut 2 days early i.e. on March 25. All this in order to give enough space to Ranveer Singh starrer ’83’, which is directed by Kabir Khan.
Giving an insight into these happenings, a source told the portal,
“The content is very massy and they are confident that audiences are looking forward to seeing Akshay Kumar in a Rohit Shetty style flick. Hence, they felt it’s just fair to arrive a little early and make use of the open window. They also want to accumulate as much earnings as possible before another juggernaut, ’83’, releases on April 10.”
For the uninitiated, Ranveer Singh is also a crucial part of ‘Sooryavanshi’ as ‘Simmba’. He would have a cameo appearance in the film like ‘Singham’ Ajay Devgn.
“The makers of Sooryavanshi are releasing the film on March 25. It’s a Wednesday and a part-holiday on account of Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra. Most parts of the country obviously won’t celebrate this festival and yet, the makers feel that the movie can get an earth-shattering opening.”
Irrfan Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Radhika Madan starrer ‘Angrezi Medium’ was previously slated for a March 20th release, but that movie too would now release on March 13th.
