Interview with Bollywood Hungama, Reliance Entertainment CEO Shibashish said, “If either cinema halls don’t open or corona impact increases many folds….and audiences are not coming… Or in some states theatres open and in some states they won’t….in those scenarios we will have to explore all options… Either pure SVOD (video on demand) routes. Or TVOD/PPV (pay per view) routes like what the makers of Mulan are planning. Or part theatrical/part TVOD. Or in some state/countries theatrical and some state digital… Basically we will not like to shift release date further…. and ideally look for theatrical or any other hybrid measure for the best possible release. (sic.)”
But the official also cleared that they have all intentions to go towards the theatrical route. The film makers are not keen on releasing either Superstar Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi or Ranveer Singh’s ’83 on digital screens. But given the on-going scenario, not much is under their hands. “We are 100% inclined to take theatrical route. However, at the same time, we don’t want to delay the release further than practically possible. That means we will not like to push release dates beyond Diwali festival / Christmas festival. So the first option is to go theatrical if cinemas open up and audiences are back,” said by Shibashish Sarkar CEO Reliance Entertainment.
