With the lockdown being implemented in phases since March by the Indian Government, the entire nation along with Bollywood industry has come to a standstill. Shootings of movies were cancelled and release dates were postponed indefinitely.
So far, films like Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif and David Dhawan’s ‘Coolie No. 1’ starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan have been pushed ahead.
While the Government has given a go-ahead to the producers to slowly start resuming the shoots of their stalled projects, it is yet to begin in full swing.
It has also been an especially dark year for Bollywood as it lost many of its talented actors like Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, singer-composer Wajid Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput.
