Due to COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown, Salman Khan had to postpone the release of his much awaited film, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. The actioner starring Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff was scheduled to release in theatres on Eid 2020. After theatres reopened, single screen theatres and exhibitors requested Salman to release Radhe in cinema halls. Keeping his promise, the superstar assured his film will hit the silver screen on Eid this year. Talking about the decision to release Radhe on the big screen, Salman, at an event said celebrities are incomplete without theatres and vice-versa.
Saying that theatres shutting down isn't a good thing, Salman shared, "Theatres are looking like graveyards right now. There are also so many theatre owners who have had to close down because of financial reasons. It is not a good thing that theatres are closing down. This is our business. Our work is to act and make movies. It is like a catch 22 situation. They are incomplete without us, and we are incomplete without them."
Now, theatres are operating at 100% capacity since February 1. Salman, at the event, told that when people will go to watch films, they need to act responsibly and make sure that they follow guidelines. "The single screen theatre owners and exhibitors had requested us to release Radhe in theatres, and now that things have eased down and we are seeing people roaming around normally, we can do it. I’d request fans to be cautious too. They should sanitise their hands and be responsible. The younger generation is surviving but our parents and grandparents need to be taken care of. If they contract COVD-19 due to us, we'll be guilty forever. Now that the vaccines have come, we are all heading towards a safe zone. I am hoping 2021 and 2022 are better than 2020 for all of us," Salman added.
