Dulquer Salmaan's Salute release postponed rising COVID-19 cases

The film was slated to hit screens on January 14

Published: 10th January 2022

The release of Dulquer Salmaan's upcoming investigation thriller film Salute has been postponed indefinitely in the wake of the increasing Omicron COVID-19 cases in the country. Additionally, theatre chains have also withdrawn bookings following the update. The film was supposed to release on January 14.

Dulquer took to his official Facebook page to announce the news. "We at Wayfarer films are bound to show social responsibility ahead of our personal interests. Just like all of you, we were most excited and eagerly awaiting our next release.

Owing to recent developments and the spike in Covid-19 and Omicron cases, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the release of “Salute”.  We apologise if we’ve disappointed you. But in times like this we must prioritise health and safety. 

We request everyone to stay safe. We will be back. At the earliest. We thank each and every one of you for your support," he wrote.

Directed by Rosshan Andrrews, Salute comes from the imagination of writing duo Bobby and Sanjay. Dulquer essays a sub-Inspector from Kerala Police named Aravind Karunakaran in the film. Diana Penty plays the female lead, with Manoj K Jayan, Alencier Ley, Binu Pappu, Vijayakumar and Lakshmi Gopalaswamy among the other actors in the film.

Jakes Bejoy (RanamAyyappanum Koshiyum) serves as the music composer. Aslam K Purayil shot the film, with editing by Sreekar Prasad.

Dulquer's Wayfarer Films is bankrolling Salute as the company's fifth production venture.
