As cinemas open from October 15 onwards, a number of big films are set for re-release. Names include big hits such as Hrithik Roshan’s war, Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Taapsee Pannu’s Thappad and Sushant Singh Rajput’s Kedarnath among others.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted to make the announcement. He wrote: “As cinemas ready to reopen their doors from this week onwards, the list of #Hindi films scheduled for re-release this week is OFFICIALLY announced…#Tanhaji #ShubhMangalZyadaSaavdhan #Malang #Kedarnath #Thappad More films will be scheduled in coming days.”
In a subsequent tweet, he added Hrithik Roshan’s War was part of this lot of films. He wrote: “The list of #Hindi films re-releasing in cinemas keeps growing… In addition to the five titles mentioned earlier [#Tanhaji, #ShubhMangalZyadaSaavdhan, #Malang, #Kedarnath, #Thappad], there’s a prominent addition to the list: #War… More films will be scheduled in coming days.”
He added that there was some talk of films that released on OTT platform would also see a big screen release. However, leading multiplex chains including PVR, INOX, Carnival and Cinepolis had decided against the move. He wrote: “IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT… There was talk that films premiered on #OTT platforms [#DilBechara, #Sadak2, #ShakuntalaDevi, #KhudaHaafiz, #GunjanSaxena, #GulaboSitabo] *might* release in cinemas… But leading multiplex chains [#PVR, #INOX, #Carnival] decide NOT TO SCREEN these films.”
