The film business in India is set for a major loss as filmmakers have postponed the release date of their film due to coronavirus outbreak. The crown-shaped virus, that originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December last year and claimed over 4600 lives in the country, has already left many celebrities to cancel their shooting schedules and work commitments. Not just events, but many films which were set to release in the crucial March-May period have been postponed indefinitely. Actors like Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif have already pushed their film Sooryavanshi forward and it was said that actor Irrfan’s comeback film Angrezi Medium was also going to get postponed. However, makers decided to go ahead with the release pan India except for places where the virus was most proliferated and movie theatres were shut.
