Akshay Kumar’s film was set to hit the screens on March 24. The makers of Sooryavanshi were expecting massive box office numbers because the release had been strategically planned to coincide with Gudi Padwa holiday (new year for Marathi and Konkani community). But the country went into full coronavirus lockdown on March 24. Made on a reported budget of Rs 135 crore, Sooryavanshi also features Katrina Kaif and Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn in an extended cameo.
Likewise, Ranveer Singh’s upcoming film 83 was earlier slated to hit the screens on April 10. The Kabir Khan-directed 83 tells the story of India’s first-ever cricket World Cup victory in 1983. The film also stars Ranveer’s wife Deepika Padukone, who will be seen playing Kapil’s wife Romi. It also features Tahir Raj Bhasin, Ammy Virk, Sahil Khattar, Hardy Sandhu and Saqib Saleem.
Meanwhile, on Monday it was announced that seven Bollywood movies will be releasing directly on Disney+ Hotstar. These are Akshay Kumar-starrer Laxmmi Bomb, Ajay Devgn’s Bhuj: The Pride Of India, Sadak 2 starring Alia Bhatt, Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film Dil Bechara, The Big Bull starring Abhishek Bachchan, Vidyut Jammwal-starrer Khuda Haafiz and Lootcase featuring Kunal Kemmu.
Earlier, in May, spanning five Indian languages, Amazon Prime Video had announced the release of Amitabh Bachchan-Ayushmann Khurrana’s Gulabo Sitabo along with Anu Menon’s Shakuntala Devi with Vidya Balan in lead, legal drama Ponmagal Vandhal starring Jyotika in addition to Keerthy Suresh starrer Penguin (Tamil and Telugu), Sufiyum Sujatayum (Malayalam), Law (Kannada) and French Biryani (Kannada).
The announcement had led to a massive debate of films releasing directly on OTT platforms vs traditional theater.
Acclaimed actor Pankaj Tripathi says he has spent days with cheats and alcoholics, and added that one starts valuing the good only when one has seen the bad.
“Maine thugon ko, chandaalon ko, lekhakon ko, vidhwano ko aas paas dekha hai. Bade bade sharabiyon ke saath din guzare hain aur un sabne milke banaya hai (I have spent days with cheats, low-life people, writers, educationists and even alcoholics. They have made me what I am). They were the people who made me the person I am today,” he asserted.
Pankaj, who has tasted the highs of highs with his work in projects like Sacred Games, Mirzapur, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Gangs Of Wasseypur and Luka Chuppi among many others, shares details about how he values every success in his life.
“The value of good happens only when we have seen the bad. I have seen the worst and best of times over the last decade, which is why every success, every joy is of so much value,” he shared.
Amid the lockdown, Pankaj realised “if bad has happened, it is inevitable that it gets better”.
“I still think of my brief jail stint where I was surrounded by all kinds of people and I had an epiphany that I needed to make something better of my life. Every experience is nature’s way to ask you to better yourself. Look for that sign!” he said.
On the acting front, he is gearing up for the release of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl starring Janhvi Kapoor.
Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl is inspired by the life of Indian Air Force combat pilot Gunjan Saxena, and stars Janhvi Kapoor in the titular role. Saxena entered the war zone during the 1999 Kargil War.
