Sooryavanshi digital release: Netflix has bagged the online streaming rights of Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi. Check the digital release date.
The Rohit Shetty directorial Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif will hit the big screens on April 30, 2021. Now the latest we hear is that Netflix has acquired the digital streaming rights of Sooryavanshi. As per the reports coming, the digital streaming giant has bagged the streaming rights of the film for a record amount of Rs 200 crore.
Though the fans are super excited about the film’s theatrical release, the sudden rise in COVID cases is a big reason to worry for the makers. Therefore the makers have opted for a profitable route.
As per the reports, Netflix has locked this deal at a huge price on a big condition. The makers have agreed to condition that Sooryavanshi will release on Netflix after 28 days of its theatrical release.
Sooryavanshi Digital Release Date
As per our sources, Sooryavanshi will be having its digital premiere on Netflix on May 28, 2021. The makers are not very much confident about the film’s box office prospects amidst the rising COVID-19 cases. Cinema halls are back to 50% capacity in Maharashtra, a territory that contributes 25% to 30% of the total collection. COVID-19 guidelines are only going to get stricter in the coming days.
As Sooryavanshi is a big film, the makers want the action-entertainer to reach a larger audience base. This is probably the reason they have decided to release the film digitally within a month of its theatrical release.
