Rohit Shetty-Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘Sooryavanshi’ to screen 24×7 in Mumbai theatres
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty has advanced the release of his upcoming film – Akshay Kumar-starrer Sooryavanshi – by three days to March 24 following the Maharashtra government’s decision to allow theatres to operate 24×7 in Mumbai.
In January, the state government cleared a proposal to allows shops, eateries, and theatres in malls to remain open through the night. The plan received a tepid response initially, it is slowly gaining momentum as more businesses are experimenting with 24/7 operations.
The film will now hit the theatres on March 24, instead of its earlier release date of March 27.
