- alman Khan recently wrapped the filming of Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai
- Directed by Prabhudheva, Radhe is said to be a remake of Korean action thriller, The Outlaws
- The movie was slated for Eid 2020 release but a report has now claimed that will hit the big screens on Eid 2021
After the failure of Dabangg 3 at the box office, fans of Salman Khan were eagerly waiting for his next titled Radhe: Your Most Wanted for their favourite superstar to bounce back with double the force. The movie was slated for an Eid 2020 release and was all set to clash with Akshay Kumar starrer Laxmmi Bomb.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the cinema halls around world were closed as there was a global shutdown. This move led to almost all the Hindi films slated for a release throughout the year opting to release online, barring a few big films like Sooryavanshi, ’83 and Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai.
It was only recently that Salman Khan resumed the shooting of the Prabhudheva directorial and wrapped it up. It was speculated that Salman is now eyeing for a Republic Day 2021 release for his highly anticipated film. But, it has now been reported that due to the poor turnout of audience in theatres ever since the reopening, the makers have decided to move the film further. Sohail Khan, Atul Agnihotri, and Salman Khan had a meeting recently and have now decided to release their film during Eid festivities on May 12, 2021.
A source told Mid-Day that the makers of Radhe had zeroed in on Republic Day weekend for the film’s release, “However, they were discouraged by the low footfall in theatres ever since they reopened at 50 per cent capacity in several states. Considering Radhe is a big-budget movie, the makers calculated that it will earn in the ballpark of Rs 120 crore, if released in the current circumstances. Taking this into account, the entire team — including its worldwide distributors Yash Raj Films — felt it would be wise to release it on May 12, 2021, thus keeping Salman’s tradition of Eid offerings alive.”
Trade analyst Atul Mohan said that he hopes the situation will be under control by Eid next year and added, “It’s prudent to release Radhe on Eid next year. Internationally, the makers of Fast & Furious too have pushed Fast 9 by a year.”
Sohail Khan and Atul Agnihotri were contacted by the website for the confirmation about the same but they didn’t respond.
If the news of Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai releasing on Eid 2021 turns out to be true than we will witness Salman Khan vs John Abraham at the box office as latter’s Satyameva Jayate 2 is also slated to release during the same time.
