Proceeds from the release of Salman Khan's action film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai will be used to procure the medical resources. For their relief effort, the companies have partnered with Indian donation platform GiveIndia.
“We are glad to be a part of this noble initiative, to contribute our bit towards the Nation’s fight against COVID-19 . Since the last year, we have been consistent in our efforts towards fighting COVID-19 , since this unprecedented crisis struck our country and the world. Very importantly, we have also come to realise that holding up the release of a pre-shot film may not help us in any way but using its proceeds towards fighting the pandemic is a more suitable and pragmatic approach," said a Salman Khan Films' spokesperson.
Radhe, which features Khan as an encounter specialist tackling the drug menace in Mumbai, is set to have a theatrical release on Eid (13 May) in over 40 countries. It will also simultaneously stream on multiple platforms, including OTT and DTH services and will also release on the pay-per-view broadcast platform Zee Plex.
