Blue Pictures Entertainment has confirmed that no re-release date is being considered at the moment until the outbreak is curbed. The distribution company shared on Instagram:

“Due to the recent outbreak of Covid-19, we have decided to put a halt to the release of “Ratnik” until there’s a positive turnaround with the situation of things. In the meantime, ensure you observe all preventive measures and stay safe”.

‘Ratnik’ director, Dimeji Ajibola is however yet to make a public announcement but when Pulse reached out to him days ago, he confirmed that a postponement was likely inevitable.

He shared: “We just want to observe what the next few days will bring. If situations deteriorate, then we will shift the release date forward”.
