Ranveer Singh's much-anticipated movie '83 may have been held back to streaming due to the extended lockdown of COVID-19.

The coronavirus lockdown has been affecting various projects in the entertainment industry and '83 is one of them. The movie featuring B-town power couple Ranveer Singh - Deepika Padukone was first set to hit the cinema this month but it seems to have been rescheduled indefinitely.

Recently, there have been some rumors saying that the much-awaited movie may be on a streaming platform with a budget of Rs 143 crore. But the filmmakers of '83 have cleared the air about the same. Shibashish Sarkar, CEO of Reliance Entertainment Group confirmed that they are not seeing that way for at least another 6 months. He clarified:

"There is no truth in this. As producers and even the director we all are on the same page that we want to wait for theatrical release for next few months. We will first complete the film then we will wait. If six or nine months down the line the situation becomes much worse we will take a call at that time. There is no hurry. Everybody has shown interest in this project but we are not engaging in any discussion for a straight to digital release currently. We will wait for next hour to six months before taking any further call."

The CEO further said that they are still pending the work of the VFX and post-production. Kabir Khan's directorial was slated to release on April 10 but due to the coronavirus lockdown, the schedule has been held back.

'83 retells the first victory of India in the 1983 World Cup with Kapil Dev's captaincy. Apart from Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, it also features Hardy Sandhu, Saqib Saleem, Jivaa, Tahir Rai Bhasin, Pankaj Tripathi, and many other actors.
