Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Toofan, Sardar Udham Singh, KGF: Chapter 2, Anubhav Sinha's next — new release dates announced

The outbreak of coronavirus led to shifts in major events in the entertainment industry in India. With a few states declaring theatre hall shutdowns, many films have pushed their release dates, causing consecutive shifts in each production house's film slates for this year and the next one.

However, aside from that, there were a few film releases for later this year which were announced on 13 March.

Jayeshbhai Jordaar

Jayeshbhai Jordaar, directed by debutante filmmaker Divyang, marks a reunion of Ranveer Singh and producer Maneesh Sharma, who gave the actor his first big break with the 2010 directorial Band Baaja Baaraat. The film has now taken up the spot assigned to Ritesh Sidhwani's Toofan. The Yash Raj venture thus will release on 2 October. It will clash with Milap Zaveri's cop drama Satyamev Jayate 2, starring John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar.
