Actor Salman Khan is ready with two big movies, starting with Aayush Sharma’s Antim and then Tiger Zinda Hai 3. But there are rumours floating that Salman will be cancelling one of his most ambitious projects titled, Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. First it was only the title that was about to get change but now as per the speculations the whole project will be cancelled now.
According to reports by Free Press Journal, the source stated the reason behind shelving Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali is the poor response of Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, the source said, “The picture of false bravado that Salman projects in public is not what he feels. In truth, the response to Radhe has shaken up Salman as much as the failure of Zero stunned Shah Rukh Khan. Salman is not in a hurry to start another project. The ominously titled Antim maybe Salman’s only release in 2022 followed by Tiger 3 in 2023.”
Talking more about the hybrid release, a source close to the production told Bollywood Hungama, “Salman Khan felt that Antim is more of a relaunch for Aayush Sharma and with cinema halls being shut in Maharashtra, it’s best to bring the film on digital platforms to make it reach the target audience.”
“The team is contemplating on a hybrid release i.e. a Zee 5 premiere + a theatrical release in single screens across India. Both Salman and Zee are aware that multiplexes won’t agree to release their film, and hence are clear on a strict single screen release for fans across the country,” the source added.
