A few days before the release of Radhe, Salman Khan had spoken about losing money at the box office with Radhe. “We will lose money at the box office with Radhe. The reason why we are releasing this film is for the fans. I don’t want them to come to a theatre to watch me. I don’t want ki kal ko koi bole ki Salman Khan ke fans ko coronavirus hogaya ya unhone faila diya. I am glad Zee also was ready to take losses along with us,” he had said.
Salman Khan and Disha Patani have reunited for the second time after Bharat. The film also features Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles. The Prabhu Deva directorial is produced under the banner of Yash Raj Films, and is co-produced by Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, and Atul Agnihotri under the banners Salman Khan Films, in association with ZEE Studios, Sohail Khan Productions, and Reel Life Production.
