Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi has revived the business of cinema halls after one and a half year lull due to the lockdown because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In his recent interview with a news agency, the filmmaker said that said holding on to the project for 19 months was not easy and recalled how his decision to release the film in theatres was ridiculed by many who thought that he had gone mad as 'nobody is going to come theatres.' However now with the film tasting success at the box office, Shetty has managed to put all the naysayers to silence.
