After initially being slated for a March 2020 release, Sooryavanshi had to be postponed following the pandemic outbreak early last year. A Diwali 2020 release was also planned but could not be materialised. Another release date, April 30, 2021, could also not be kept because of various Covid-19 related restrictions across the country.

After Akshay Kumar’s BellBottom hit theaters in July and had a dismal show at the box office, distributors and exhibitors had been urging Maharashtra government to reopen cinemas. The state forms a major portion of box office collection for Hindi films in the country. On Saturday, a delegation of filmmakers and theatre owners including Shetty met Thackeray to discuss the reopening of cinema halls across Maharashtra.
