On September 25, Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray announced that theaters in Maharashtra would finally open after 22nd October. This was followed by a photo-op with director Rohit Shetty, producer Jayantilal Gada, Sanjay Chatar, and various representatives of national multiplex chains. This is momentous for Bollywood films that refused to go directly to streaming, seeing as Maharashtra is the largest territory for Bollywood films. 

In a record move, overnight, over 14 release dates were announced by producers to earmark special weekends like Diwali and Christmas. Following are the films whose dates were announced. This list will be updated with newer announcements as and when they come.
