He shared that the team had plans to release the film worldwide on the same day, so that cinephiles could experience the film on the big screen. But as theatres are not functioning in many parts of the world including Dubai, Saudi, and Oman, and as the permission for conducting four shows is still to be reviewed, they have decided to postpone the release.
The director also shared that ‘The Priest’ will not be released on March 4 as it wouldn’t be financially feasible for a big-budget film.
It was expected that the government would grant the permission of the late-night show from March 1, however, the nod is yet to be granted. Also, theatres in Kerala are still functioning with 50 percent occupancy.
Although the release date of Mammootty starrer ‘The Priest’ has been postponed, the team hasn’t shared the new release date yet.
