Ranveer Singh's Simmba will re-release in cinemas across Australia and Fiji as cinemas reopen following a coronavirus lockdown. The actor took to social media to make the announcement that the film will be out on 2 July.
The Guardian writes Australia's National cabinet had announced that people gathering in public spaces must follow the "four metre rule" (one person per four square metre).
Fiji Times had reported that cinemas were reopened in the country on 22 June as part of “Phase 2” of Fiji’s COVID-Safe Economic Recovery, but with restrictions. Besides, maintaining strict sanitation practices, cinemas have been asked to function at 50 percent capacity and audience expected to maintain 1.5 metres of distance from each other.
