‘Thappad’, ‘Kedarnath’ Among Movies Slated For Re-Release After Cinemas Reopen On Oct 15


The Ministry of Home Affairs is allowing theatres to reopen in Delhi with 50 percent capacity from October 15. Many movies are slated for re-releases in cinemas. These include blockbusters such as Tapasee Pannu’s ‘Thappad’, Ajay Devgn’s ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’, and Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘Kedarnath’ among others.

The announcement was made in a tweet by trade analyst Taran Adarsh. He wrote: “As cinemas ready to reopen their doors from this week onwards, the list of #Hindi films scheduled for re-release this week is OFFICIALLY announced…#Tanhaji #ShubhMangalZyadaSaavdhan #Malang #Kedarnath #Thappad More films will be scheduled in coming days.”

In a follow-up tweet, he added Hritik Roshan’s ‘War’ to the list of re-releases.

He added that some movies were considered for release on OTT platforms. However, multiplex chains, including PVR, INOX, Cinnepolis objected. He wrote “IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT… There was talk that films premiered on #OTT platforms [#DilBechara, #Sadak2, #ShakuntalaDevi, #KhudaHaafiz, #GunjanSaxena, #GulaboSitabo] *might* release in cinemas… But leading multiplex chains [#PVR, #INOX, #Carnival] decide NOT TO SCREEN these films.”
