Ranveer Singh stars 83 is getting a lukewarm response at the box office. The film might get an OTT release soon. Kabir Khan directional 83 was released on December 24, 2021. The film is not getting a great response from the audience at the box office. Due to the rose in the Covid-19 cases, many states have imposed night curfews and in a couple of states, theatres being shut will affect the 83 collections at the box office.
Recently. Kabir Khan revealed that if the restrictions are imposed further, They will quickly release the film on OTT. In an interview with media, Kabir said, “We don’t know if we will have to shut down tomorrow, or will be afforded another five or six days. If further restrictions are imposed, we will release the film on the web, soon. But, I am keen (that) people take precaution and go to the theatres to watch it.”
He continues, “This film was ready with us 18 months ago. We wanted people to see it on the big screen because that is how it was designed. But, such are the times that we live in. We tried hard to acquire a safe spot for the film. But the day of its release, there was a spike in cases, by day four, Delhi theatres had shut down. We live in a pandemic. We didn’t plan it in such a way that the moment we released the film 2 states will be going into night curfew, on day 2 six states going into night curfew, on the fourth day Delhi which is a large part of our box office was shut theatres. In the middle of all this, for me to start complaining about things like this will be petty. It won’t be in the spirit of 83.”
