The filmmakers cited the growing cases of Covid infections for the delay. Many states have announced weekend curfews among other measures to contain the spread. In states like Delhi, Haryana and Bihar, the cinema halls have been asked to close the operations until further notice. In Karnataka, the government has imposed a 50 per cent cap on the occupancy in theatres. And the Tamil Nadu government is also expected to announce strict Covid-19 measures soon.
