On the request of the owners of cinema halls, Salman Khan has decided to release his upcoming film, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, in theatres. The actor took to Twitter to put out a statement.
"Sorry it has taken me a long time to revert to all the theatre owners. It's a big decision to make during these times. I understand the financial problems that the theatre owners/exhibitors are going through and I would like to help them by releasing Radhe in theatres. In return I would expect them to take utmost amount of care and precautions for the audience who would come to the theatres to watch Radhe. The commitment was of EID and it will be Eid 2021 inshallah".
Salman Khan also announced that Radhe will release on Eid this year.
