Reliance Entertainment, Group CEO, Shibasish Sarkar told in an interview with SpotboyE that how the spread of Coronavirus has impacted on the movie business. He said, “Worldwide there has been a 15-20 percent impact. At the same time, it’s not more than that- it’s a surprising trend, it’s not a dramatic effect of 30-40 percent. If you’re expecting a 50 million dollar business, you are opening with 40 million dollar. If you take the total footfall of people coming in to watch the movie, there is not a big difference as such but we also can’t ignore the fact that there is a downfall.”

Directed by Rohit Shetty, ‘Sooryavanshi’ stars Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif. It was supposed to hit the screens on March 24.
