Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown that followed, Bollywood has been severely hurt. The release of many big films is stuck as the cinema halls are closed due to the lockdown. On the other hand, the shootings of the films that were going on have been stopped keeping in mind the safety of the crew and the unit. In these circumstances, many filmmakers are now deciding to digitally release their films as they are getting lucrative offers. The first ones in line are Amitabh Bachchan's 'Gulabo - Sitabo' and Vidya Balan's 'Shakuntala Devi' that are officially going to be released on Amazon Prime.

Many other film producers are also considering releasing their films digitally but according to the latest buzz, there is one production house that has refused to release any of its films directly on digital. Yes, and we are talking about the biggest production house of Bollywood, Yash Raj Films, who have made it clear that they are not going to release even a single film produced by them on any digital platform. Like it has always been, YRF's films will be hitting the theater screens first and then digital. 

According to reports, Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra starrer dark-comedy film 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Farrar' is on top of the list of these films. Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, the film was to hit the screens on March 20th, but its release was postponed due to the lockdown. Since then, rumors were rife that the film will now be released digitally. But, YRF has now put a tab on all the rumours. 

YRF's interesting upcoming film line-up includes Ranveer Singh starrer social comedy-drama film 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar', Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherjee starrer 'Bunty Aur Babli 2', Ranbir Kapoor starrer action film 'Shamshera' and lastly Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chillar starrer historical action-drama 'Prithviraj' which is being helmed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi. Although all these films are bound to be pushed ahead owing to the lockdown as the cinema halls are still shut across the country.
