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.

Akshay also shared the news on his official Twitter handle.

“Ain’t no time for crime coz Aa Rahi Hai Police! #Sooryavanshi releasing worldwide on 24th March. #SooryavanshiOn24thMarch” he wrote.
