Film releases across the world have been stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the Hindi film industry too, many films had to forgo their scheduled release dates because theaters across the country have been shut down following social distancing guidelines. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Friday shared the latest updates on all the big film releases.
For Ranveer Singh starrer 83, Adarsh shared, “#83TheFilm, starring #RanveerSingh: Filming complete… Editing and dubbing complete… Final mix pending… Minimal post-production work remains to be completed.”
83, which revolves around India winning its first cricket world cup, was scheduled to release on April 10. The new release date of the Kabir Khan directorial is yet to be announced.
Salman Khan starrer Radhe was scheduled to release on Eid in 2020. According to Taran Adarsh, the film is not completed yet. He tweeted, “#Radhe, starring #SalmanKhan and #DishaPatani: The film is *not* complete yet… Filming of two songs and some sequences pending… Dubbing, VFX, post-production work pending too.”
Since Radhe is yet to finish shooting, the new release date might be pushed further back after the lockdown gets lifted. The film also stars Disha Patani.Songs Lyrics 4 You

Some post-production work on the film is still pending as Taran Adarsh wrote, “#LaxmmiBomb, starring #AkshayKumar and #KiaraAdvani: Filming complete… Rough edit complete… Balance post-production work [dubbing, background score, VFX etc] pending.”
There has been speculation that Laxxmi Bomb might witness a digital release forgoing the theatrical release altogether, but the producers are yet to announce their plans.
