In 2021, more than 50 big films were expected to be released in Hindi. These films were to be released on ten thousand screens, which had the potential to touch the earning figures of at least 5000 crores.
Corona’s havoc on the release of films
The growing Corona cases in Mumbai have given sleep to Bollywood. Worried by the way this figure is increasing everyday, the film industry has come to its knees at the moment. The night curfew in Mumbai has stopped night shootings. The news of lockdown again has added more ghee to this fire.
Let us tell you that since the Maharashtra Government has taken strict action to control the corona, after which the release date of which films have been extended and all the TV shows including which films have been stuck. went.
Amitabh-Imran’s face stuck
Preparations for the release of Amitabh Bachchan (Emraan Hashmi) and Riya Chakraborty (Rhea Chakraborty) in film Theaters were completed. Its trailer had arrived and it was to be released in theaters on April 9 but all preparations were put on hold as the Maharashtra government imposed a curfew in Mumbai at night and people are not going to watch the film fearing opening theaters during the day as fast Corona numbers are increasing. Now when this film will be released, it has been questioned at the moment.
Bunty and Babli 2 move ahead
The release of the film Bunty Aur Babli 2, starring Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherjee and Siddhant Chaturvedi, was also finalized for April 23, but the producer of the film Yash Raj Films decided to postpone it for a longer time. It is because they do not want this film to fail to bring viewers to the box office because of Corona.
Release calendar face again
After the Central Government’s order of hundred percent operation of cinemas, the calendar of the release date of Hindi films started coming in its shape. In April, there was talk of fixing the release date of Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan, Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif’s film Sooryavanshi in April. In May, preparations were made to screen films like Salman’s Radhey, John Abraham’s Satyamev Jayate 2, Akshay Kumar’s Ballbotam. The film 83 which was won after winning the 1983 Cricket World Cup in June and the release of Ranveer Kapoor’s Shamshera was to come. But in front of the changing movement of Corona, all the forts are seen collapsing.
Many big films were flopped
The government may have allowed 100 per cent operation for theaters, but the films that were released after that were Rajkummar Rao-Janhvi Kapuri’s Ruhi, Kiara Advani’s Indu Ki Jawani, Parineeti Chopra-Arjun Kapoor’s Sandeep and Pinki absconding, In addition to Parineeti’s Saina, John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi’s Mumbai Saga, many small big films like Flight, Koi Jaane Na. Even if the estimated budget of these films is taken to be around 300 million, the makers expected a business of 1000 crore rupees from them. But these films failed to extract the money put in their budget.
Trade analysts are telling huge losses
Trade analyst Girish Wankhede, who monitors the business of films, told that in 2021, more than 50 big films were expected to be released in Hindi. These films were to be released on ten thousand screens, which had the potential to touch the earnings figure of at least 5000 crores, but the films released in the first quarter of 2021 flopped at the box office. This new wave of karona in the second quarter Has given a knock, which if reduced further, will still give Bollywood a loss of around 3 thousand crores till the end of half a year.
OTT is expected but small
Movies and webseries are constantly coming on OTT platforms, but the second fund of business works in them. They do not give films as big as the box office. Therefore, films whose budgets are big like Suryavanshi and 83 she do not want to come on OTT platforms because these platforms give them a little bit above the cost. The budget of 200-300 crores cannot be expected from them, so the box office is the last way left.
Shoots of tv shows stopped
During the last lockdown on TV, repeat shows had to be run because new episodes could not be shot. A year later, just as the industry gained momentum, the second wave of Corona has put a brake on it as well. Shooting of the number one show Anupama is stopped in TRP. Another big show is this, because of Corona, he has gone on a shooting break for a few days. In such a situation, there are lines of worry on the foreheads of the creative teams of TV channels. If the havoc escalates, the danger of stopping the shoot on other shows will also be there.
When will the danger cloud
The answer to this question is not available even with the big experts of Bollywood, because until Karona is completely controlled, people’s trust will not be able to go out with families. Entertainment has to be done inside the houses. The maximum loss is due to multiplex owners as the estimated cost of running a multiplex is 1 crore rupees a month. The crisis of employment has been going on there for a long time.
