Some media reports were floating around that since coronavirus isn’t going anywhere and the situation doesn’t seem to become normal again in the near future, so the film Radhe, starring Salman Khan and Disha Patani, will be released online. But that isn’t going to happen.
Other films like Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb is said to have an online release. It is also not final yet but the speculations are such and it is quite possible that this might happen. But for Radhe, the makers feel that the fans of Salman should not be denied the opportunity to watch him on the big screen.
Deccan Chronicle reports, “Salman Khan’s movies are not really a great home watch unless they are Sooraj Barjatya films or an odd one like Bajrangi Bhaijaan. His films are great theatrical experience. A film like Radhe is a film for the masses who are not really on OTT platforms. It may make some great business sense now to pawn off the film to an OTT platform, but it would go against Salman’s grain to even try and get his films not release in the theatres. Radhe too is a film which is largely designed for the masses and the theatrical audiences, including the multiplexes, and hence will release there only.”
Initially, the film was supposed to be released on May 22, 2020. But that didn’t happen due to the evil virus.
