If things go well in this case, it may prompt other filmmakers to think about having a theatrical release. Diljit Dosanjh, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Manoj Bajpayee’s upcoming comedy has become the first Bollywood new release to hit the big screens after a long gap of over eight months. The makers of Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari have zeroed in a Diwali release for their project and the movie is slated to hit the screens on November 15, 2020.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter account to announce the new development. With Maharashtra finally allowing its theatres and multiplexes to resume operations, it was a wise idea for the makers to play a gamble and hope for it to work. The upcoming festive season may work in the film’s favour and its consequent success (if it works well on BO) can motivate other filmmakers to ditch their OTT premieres and think about having a big-screen release.

Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is about a detective who has to perform background checks on prospective grooms. It’s a comedy that has the potential to be a wholesome family entertainer. Let’s hope it’s able to cash in on festival time and mint in decent money at the box office.
