Salman Khan's Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is arriving on May 13, 2021, that is Eid. The Prabhudeva actioner will be simultaneously releasing in limited theatres and on the pay-per-view digital platform, ZEEPlex. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Radhe couldn't get a 100% theatrical release. With just two days left for the film's much-awaited release, Salman interacted with the media virtually. During the interaction, the superstar said if people like the film and once the situation improves, he will plan to re-release Radhe in theatres.
"I know people are disappointed that they will not be able to watch Radhe on the big screen. Some people have booked auditoriums and are planning to screen my film, which I won’t encourage because I don’t want people to say ‘Salman Khan ki picture dekhne gaye aur corona phail gaya’. Once this pandemic is over and theatres reopen, if people like the film, we will try to release it on the big screen," Salman told.
During the media interaction, Salman also apologised to cinema owners who were hoping to earn profits with Radhe's release. "I apologise to cinema owners who were hoping to earn profits with the release of this film. We waited as long as we could, hoping that this pandemic would end and we would be able to release in theatres all over the country. But that did not happen. We don’t know when things will go back to normal," Salman said.
He further said, "The box office collection of Radhe will be zero, this will be the lowest ever for a Salman Khan film. Let people be happy or sad with that. It is releasing in very few cinemas in India, overseas also the number of theatres are less than usual. So the box office collection will be very poor."
Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is presented by Salman Khan Films in association with ZEE Studios, produced By Salma Khan, Sohail Khan and Reel Life Production Private Limited. The film also stars Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff.
