Mumbai, Jan 11: The release of cop drama Salute, starring Dulquer Salmaan in the lead role, has been postponed due to the spike in Covid-19 cases.
Many of the theatres in different states have shut down theatres in the wake of the third wave of coronavirus.
The Rosshan Andrrews directorial, which was hoping for a pan India release on January 14 after Dulquer’s last movie Kurup’s nationwide reception, will now have to wait for the right scenario to announce the release date.
