Mumbai: Filmmaker Rohit Shetty has advanced the release of his film “Sooryavanshi”, featuring Akshay Kumar, by three days to March 24 following the Maharashtra government’s decision to allow theatres to operate round-the-clock in the city.
The state government had last month cleared a proposal to allows shops, eateries and theatres in malls to remain open day and night.
The film will now hit the theatres on March 24, instead of its earlier release date of March 27.
