Talking about the same, he said, "No decision taken yet. We are talking daily but as of now, things stand as is – that is the films will release on their original dates. If at all we need to look at a change, we will do so closer to the delivery. Definitely we are thinking about it, the entire world is – be it any event, party or any gathering, everyone is thinking twice about organizing it."
