Following the discussion, it was announced that Maharashtra's theatres will reopen on October 22nd. Producers, distributors, and theatre owners applauded the decision warmly.  As soon as the news broke, producers began announcing the theatrical release dates of their next films.

Grateful for allowing the reopening of cinema halls in Maharashtra from Oct 22. Ab kisi ke roke na rukegi - AA RAHI HAI POLICE #Sooryavanshi #Diwali2021."
