Ranveer Singh starrer 83 was slated to release on 10th April 2020, but due to coronavirus the film has been postponed and the new release date is yet to be announced. However, according to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the film will be hitting the screens on 25th June 2020. Well, interestingly India had won the World Cup on the same day in 1983.
A source stated, “June 25 is a special day as that’s when India lifted the world cup 37 years back by defeating the West-Indies cricket team at Lords. No better occasion to relive the moment than this day. It’s as if destiny wanted the film to arrive on this particular day.”
“The health scenario of the nation lies above film and its release, and the makers will announce a date only when there is absolute safety for the viewers to visit the cinema halls. Be assured, it wouldn’t release if there is even 1% scare among the audience, as the idea is to get the entire nation to the cinema hall to revisit the iconic day of Indian cricket,” the source added.
Well, the makers are also keeping 15th August as an option. The source said, “That’s an option for an extreme scenario, but they are optimistic that things would be back to normal by summer end. A wait and watch scenario is being adopted for now, with a team keeping an eye on the on ground scenario.”
