Some films will be re-released as movie theatres re-open in country


New Delhi: As movie theatres are all set to throw open their gates for moviegoers this week after a seven-month-long hiatus, some of the previously released films including superhits like ‘Tanhaji,’ and ‘War,’ have been scheduled to re-release in cinemas.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share a list of Bollywood films that have been scheduled for a re-release.

In addition to ‘Tanhaji,’ and ‘War,’ other films that will once again see the light of the day are Ayushmann Khurrana’s same-sex love saga ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan,’ multi-strarrer ‘Malang,’ Taapsee Pannu’s ‘Thappad,’ and late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘Kedarnath.’

“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,” tweeted Adarsh.
