Salman Khan fans missed the yearly ritual of his release on the day of Eid due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Salman Khan was looking forward to releasing Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai over the Diwali weekend and had already booked a floor in the Mehboob Studio in Bandra from August to complete the remaining shooting of the movie.
However, Salman’s plan to release his movie during the Diwali weekend has been postponed to 2021 after the statement from WHO stating the possibility of the virus being airborne in closed and crowded spaces. A source from Salman’s production team says “However, on Sunday, Salman called off the impending schedule after discussing with his team and co-producers Atul Agnihotri, Sohail Khan and Nikhil Namit. He felt that filming indoors could pose a risk to the health of the cast and crew. On the other hand, an outdoor shoot was not feasible in the monsoon. So, he has decided to hold off the stint till October-end, post which the unit will film the remaining portions — including a song — at outdoor locations. Salman’s first priority is the safety of his team members. The makers are now eyeing a 2021 festival release; by then, the theatres will have also reopened.”
