Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Gangubai Kathiawadi” moved in February


NEW DELHI : Biographical drama by Sanjay Leela Bhansali Gangubai Kathiawadi has moved its theatrical release date from early January to February 18, 2022. The Alia Bhatt star will no longer clash with RRR, the multilingual period drama directed by Baahubali SS filmmaker Rajamouli, who also stars Bhatt with Jr. NTR, Ram Charan and Ajay Devgn.

As cinemas reopen across the country and producers line up big releases, several titles compete for the presentation of Salman Khan’s production Antim and John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate 2 make for the first box office clash, later this month.

Trade experts have said that a handful of big-budget, all-star films will help Bollywood to fully recover by the end of 2021 and early 2022, because some kind of consistency in the flow of new content for theaters will resume later this year.

Diwali outings such as Sooryavanshi and Annaatthe have already started the ball rolling at the beginning of the month. Projects delayed from 2020 and those lit green in 2021 will come together to bear real fruit for the industry next year when pent-up public demand meets supply.

Constituting the biggest lineup ever seen in recent times, the coming months will see big star vehicles, including Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Pathan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are long delayed Brahmastra, Fighter with Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal with Kabir singh director Sandeep Reddy, the third installment of Salman Khan’s film tiger franchise, among others.

However, business experts said shutting down more than 1,000 screens during the covid-19 pandemic, and many theaters unsure of when they might restart all of their properties, could lead to inadequate presentation, even for large ones. movies. A big opening weekend becomes even more important to producers after the pandemic, as they know the film will premiere on an OTT platform in a few days, which will eat into theatrical business.
