The Kabir Khan’s multi-starrer, led by Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone as team captain Kapil Dev titled ’83′, was supposed to release on 10 April. The movie is based on India’s 1983 world cup victory. Now due to coronavirus, it will not be released on its earlier schedule of April 10 and no new date has been announced yet.
First, Angrezi Medium, which was released on March 13, was pulled from cinemas after several theatre chains across the country were shut down to prevent Coronavirus. A few days later to this, it was announced that Rohit Shetty’s Soorayavanshi would not be released on March 24 but on an unspecified later date.
