While Gulabo Sitabo and Shakuntala Devi were the first to make the move, more recently films like Bhuj: The Pride of India, Laxmi Bomb, Sadak 2, Khuda Hafiz, Dil Bekhar, Lutkase and Gunjan Saxena: Kargil Girl Direct OTT list Has joined Skip While we have mixed feelings for this decision, one good news is that Akshay Kumar’s Soryavanshi and Ranveer Singh’s ’83 ‘two big films will be released in theaters first. While Rohit Shetty is expected to release during the festive weekend of Diwali, Kabir Khan’s biographical sports drama is slated to hit the screens during the Christmas weekend.

It is bankrolled under the banner of Rohit Shetty Pictures, Dharma Productions and Cape of Good Films.
’83, on the other hand, marks the journey of the Indian cricket team to a heroic victory in the 1983 World Cup. It was scheduled to hit the screens on April 10, due to the coronovirus epidemic that has been pushed forward.
