The infection of new variants of corona virus is increasing. Its effect is beginning to be seen on Bollywood. Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur’s ‘Jersey’ was scheduled to release in theaters on 31 December 2021 on the occasion of New Year. But due to the growing outbreak of Omicron, the filmmakers have postponed the release of Jersey. Shahid Kapoor’s jersey will no longer release on New Year’s.

The team of Jersey film released an official statement saying, “Keeping in view the prevailing situation and the new COVID-19 guidelines, we are postponing the theatrical release of the film ‘Jersey’. Thank you for all the love and well wishes. Stay safe and happy new year. -Team Jersey”

Mrunal Thakur has worked with Shahid for the first time in this film. Veteran actor Pankaj Kapur will be returning to the big screen as a cricket coach in the film. Produced by Alu Aravind, the film is directed by Gowtham Tinnuri. Although at the same time this rumor is also spreading that the makers will release it directly on OTT, but this is also wrong. Its new release date will be announced soon.

Omicron’s impact, 83’s business is less than expected’

The reason for the low collection of 83′ has been revealed by the makers. The makers say that if you compare the collection with the love that the film is getting from the viewers, then it has not been satisfactory. Unfortunately Omicron’s fear is dragging the collection down. With every passing day many states are imposing restrictions like Night Curfew, which are directly affecting the box office. It is out of everyone’s control.

The makers said- We are just glad that the film has received unprecedented appreciation from the critics and the public. We can do the postmortem as to why not much audience came. Many things can be discussed, but let’s not forget that we are in the middle of a pandemic. This is certainly a major cause for concern.

Prithviraj trailer postponed, film’s release not even fixed

The trailer of ‘Prithviraj’ was to release on December 27. However, the makers dropped this plan at the last moment. It is believed that the reason for this is the increasing cases of corona in the country. Produced by Yash Raj Films, ‘Prithviraj’ is scheduled to release in theaters on January 21, 2022, which was announced by Akshay almost three months ago. If sources are to be believed, the makers are now uncertain about the release of the film.

Makers don’t want to take risk

According to the reports, Prithviraj is ready for release with great difficulty, so the makers do not want to take any kind of risk. Budget is also a reason behind this. About 300 crores have been spent on the film. Makers don’t want to spend any more money. The release of the film is also uncertain. The biggest concern for the team is what to present in front of the audience.
