Salman Khan’s much-awaited Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai (2021) is set to be released on Eid, which is expected to be celebrated around 12 May. But the actor has said that if the rise in COVID-19 cases in India continues, the makers might have to delay the film’s release.
“We were going to release Radhe on Eid. We still are trying our best to release Radhe on Eid. But if this lockdown continues for a longer period, we might have to push it to next Eid,” said Khan in an online conversation with veteran actor Kabir Bedi during the launch of the latter’s biography.
Khan highlighted the importance of following COVID protocol, stating, “If it opens up and people do take care of themselves, wear masks and keep social distancing, don’t go out, don’t break these laws that the government has put on us right now, I think this will die off really soon. If it does, then we will have Radhe in theatres on Eid (sic).”
The actor urged people to take the ongoing situation seriously. “If citizens don’t listen and these corona cases grow, it will not only be a problem for theatre owners but it will also for the daily wage workers. It’s just going to be a really bad one, like it was earlier. So, everyone should take this really, really seriously and see that we kill this coronavirus and move on in our lives before it kills us all,” said Khan.
Directed by Prabhu Deva, Radhe is expected to clash with the John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate 2 (2021) at the box office.
