The makers of the war biopic, Major, starring Adivi Sesh as martyr Sandeep Unnikrishnan, have announced that they’ll be postponing the release of the film amid the coronavirus-led lockdown until the situation gets back to normal. Previously slated for release on 2nd July 2021, and carrying reasonable buzz, given how well its trailer was received, Major, based on the real-life hero, was scheduled for a multi-lingual release across the nation. The film, shot in Hindi and Telugu simultaneously, had also announced a release in Malayalam, widening the scope of reach amongst diverse sectors of the audience.
Unfortunately, the current COVID-19 crisis has prompted the makers of Major to make an official announcement, deferring of release. Their press release reads: “We are living in unprecedented times and we hope you all are following all the safety protocols and staying safe. Our film Major, which was originally scheduled for a worldwide theatrical release on 2nd July, is now postponed to a later date. WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE NEW RELEASE DATE ONCE THINGS ARE BACK TO NORMAL. Times are tough but so are we. – Team Major.” Check it out below:
