As we know its very long time period that no film has released in theatres as they were closed due to coronavirus pandemic. Many filmmakers has released their films on digital platforms. Now, the good news has finally come!
The Government, in its Unlock Phase 5 mandate, has mentioned that cinema halls can reopen from the 15th of this month, but only at 50% capacity. Ever since the announcement, there has been huge discussion about which film will take up which date at the box office again. From what we hear, while Christopher Nolan’s Tenet will be the first Hollywood film and Vijay starrer Master will be the first South film to hit the screens, it’s Kiara Advani’s next that will will start the ball rolling for Bollywood.

An exhibitor tells Pinkvilla that , “Tenet has been ready, and the team of Master was also prepared to release as soon as the news came. So they are locked. Among the Bollywood films, Nikkhil Advani did a smart thing by not selling his next production venture Indoo Ki Jawaani, to any of the online giants. They aren’t bound by contract. They just released a song and a few promos but none of it had a mention of the release. Now, with Unloke 5, the Kiara Advani starrer will be the first major film starring an A-list actor that will release in theatres for sure.” He further adds, “It will also help the other producers test the water in a way. Indoo Ki Jawaani is a small budgeted film that has already recovered its costs. Plus, the 50% occupancy won’t make much of a difference to it, since a film in this space would have found it difficult to have a higher occupancy, even with full 100% capacity. So, Indoo Ki Jawaani has got the best bet for sure. Apart from that, even Jayantilal Gada plans to release their next film titled Flight, which stars newcomers in the cinemas.”
