The cop thriller and cricket flick had been put on hold amidst the coronavirus crisis.

Skipping a digital release, two highly anticipated Bollywood films -- cop action thriller Sooryavanshi and sports drama 83 are all set to hit theatres first.

The films' release was on an indefinite halt for nearly three months as theatres in India were shut amidst the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

However, as per the new development, Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif will be made open for viewing during Diwali, while Kabir Khan's 83 starring Ranveer Singh will hit cinemas on Christmas.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the news on Instagram on Tuesday.

"BIGGG DEVELOPMENT... #Sooryavanshi and #83TheFilm to release in *theatres* first... Plans to release #Sooryavanshi in #Diwali and #83TheFilm in #Christmas *IN CINEMAS*," read his post.

However, the exact release dates of the films are yet to be announced.
