Akshay Kumar fans are thrilled to discover that, as rumoured, his upcoming action film Sooryavanshi will release in cinemas instead of on an OTT platform. Sooryavanshi, directed by Rohit Shetty, has been scheduled for this Diwali, reports trade analyst Taran Adarsh. In addition, sports film ’83, starring Ranveer Singh as former skipper Kapil Dev, will also release in theatres and has been scheduled for Christmas. Both films were to release earlier this year – March and April – and were postponed because of the coronavirus lockdown. Twitter has been trending #Sooryavanshi all morning, relieved by the prospect of watching Rohit Shetty’s storied celluloid pyrotechnics on the big screen.
