As reported by Hungama, a trade source informed, “Aditya Chopra revealing his grand plan for YRF 50 has been one of the most awaited announcements in Bollywood. With theatres now operating at 100 percent occupancy, the production company will now roll out their ambitious celebration plan, comprising the announcement of a few new films".
The production house will reportedly announce five new movies and also give further information about Prithviraj, Shamshera, Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Bunty Babli 2 and Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
“Aditya Chopra had planned that the YRF 50 announcement will take place in the theatres and he is sticking to that. The production house didn't release any of its films on OTT platforms during the pandemic as it wanted theatrical releases for all of them", the source adds.
Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, which features Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra, was expected to release on 20 March, last year, but was pushed owing to the COVID-19 lockdown. It is expected to be the first YRF movie to hit cinemas.
Another one is Bunty Aur Babli 2, starring Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari Wagh among others. Ranveer Singh-starrer Jayeshbhai Jordaar has also been ready for quite a while and is still waiting for the clock to tick it's release date.
The other two films in YRF's bag are Prithviraj, starring Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Manushi Chhillar and Shamshera, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor.
