Cinema associations appeal to Salman Khan to release Radhe on Eid 2021
In a letter signed by 17 associations, stakeholders have requested the actor to release his upcoming film in theatres
Cinema associations across India have appealed to Salman Khan to release his upcoming film Radhe in theatres, hoping the action thriller will help boost business in these trying times. In a letter signed by 17 associations, stakeholders have requested the actor to release Radhe on Eid 2021.
Directed by Prabhudheva, the Wanted follow-up was expected to hit screens in 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic.
The letter recounts how the past year has affected the livelihood for lakhs of people. It then notes that since there hasn't been a single case of people contracting COVID-19 traced back to a cinema hall, Salman fans’ can venture out safely amid comprehensive protocols and guidelines.
“Your film Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai is among the few that are capable of resurrecting the fortunes of independent / single-screen cinemas across the country. A film like that, if released widely, can give not just financial support and relief, but also provide a ray of hope to owners and employees of theatres in the context of their future,” the letter reads.
Salman’s last theatrical release was Dabanng 3 in 2019. Besides Radhe, his upcoming projects are Antim, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and Kick 2.
