According to sources Salman Khan has signed a deal of Rs 250 crores to release RADHE: Your Most Wanted Bhai on OTT Platforms. Thereafter Film Exhibitors have requested Salman Khan by writing him a letter and asking him to release film in Theatres instead of OTT Platforms.
This request is from multiple Cinema Hall Owners associations of releasing Radhe movie in Theatres instead of OTT Platforms. After coronavirus lockdown, RADHE movie release on the big screen can bring the audience back to theatres. The letter written by the Exhibitors to Salman Khan was to explain the situations of lakhs of people employed in Theatres. Also added RADHE movie release in theatres on EID would be the biggest Eidi for all.
Letter written by Exhibitors to Salman Khan:
“Dear Mr Salman Khan,
Hope this letter finds you well.
As you are aware, 2020 has been a rough year for millions of people across the country & the ones associated with India’s film exhibition sector haven’t been an exception. Over the last 10 months, hundreds of single screen / independent cinemas have pulled down their shutters permanently & this has resulted in the loss of livelihood for lakhs of people who were employed by them directly & indirectly.
Films are to theatres what fuel is to a car. Without a constant supply of content that is relevant to its audience, running a cinema hall is close to impossible. For over a decade now, your films have played an important role in bringing audiences to single screen cinemas, which are otherwise starved for content that caters to the sensibilities of people who patronize them.
Your film RADHE – YOUR MOST WANTED BHAI is among the few that are capable of resurrecting the fortunes of independent / single screen cinemas across the country. A film like that, if released widely can give not just financial support & relief, but also a ray of hope to owners & employees of theatres in the context of their future. We request you to plan the film’s release at every cinema in the country on Eid 2021, as there cannot be a better eidi than that for us film exhibitors & more importantly for millions of your fans, whom we cannot wait to welcome back at the theatres!
Till date, not even a single case of people contracting COVID 19 has been traced back to a cinema hall anywhere in the world & we are confident of keeping your fans safe by following comprehensive protocols & guidelines that have been issued by the concerned authorities.
May 2021 bring lots of happiness, love & prosperity to you and your family. In anticipation of your support & on behalf of lakhs of Indians who make a living by working at & for cinema halls.
