New Delhi:

The makers of Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar have postponed the release of their film amidst the coronavirus outbreak. The film stars Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor in the lead roles. Both the actors took their respective Twitter handle to share the news. "Given the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the country, we have decided to postpone the release of Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. The health and safety of everyone is of utmost importance at this time,'' the actors wrote.

This is Parineeti and Arjun's third collaboration after 2012 romantic-action film Ishaqzaade and 2018 romantic-comedy Namaste England. The film is directed by Dibakar Banerjee and produced by Yash Raj Films. 

Shahid Kapoor on Saturday announced that the team of his upcoming film Jersey has decided to suspend the shoot of the film to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The 39-year-old actor took to Twitter to share the news with his fans and followers. "At a time like this it is our social responsibility to do everything in our capacity to curb the spread of this virus. Team #Jersey is suspending shoot so as to enable all unit members to be with their families and in the safety of their homes. Be responsible. Stay safe," Shahid posted on Twitter.

A release of a number of big budget films such as Sooryavanshi, Vicky Kaushal’s Udham Singh biopic and Fast and Furious 9 have also been postponed. However, the shoot of a few films such as Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, Vidya Balan’s Sherni and Bhumi Pednekar’s Durgavati continue as per schedule.

As a precautionary measure to contain the spread of coronavirus, multiple states including Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra and the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir have decided to shut down movie theatres. Irrfan Khan's comedy drama Angrezi Medium, that had already released on March 13, will be re-released again in India after theatres re-open, stated the film's director Homi Adajania on Instagram.
