As the theatres are shut due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, filmmakers are now planning to push their films for OTT release. After ‘Ludo’ and ‘Zhund’ now the makers of Janhvi Kapoor starrer ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’ and Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Pandey’s ‘Khaali Peeli’ are planning for a direct digital release.
According to the buzz, as the ongoing situation is not seeming to slow down, the production house is thinking that it would be best to push both films for a direct release on OTT.
The reports further stated that the lockdown period will take a while to end, and even if the theatres open, it will take a while to attract footfalls. Hence, the makers of both the films decided it was financially more feasible to opt for a direct OTT release.
Meanwhile, recently it was announced that Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Zhund’, Abhishek Bachchan, and Rajkummar Rao multi-starrer ‘ Ludo’ and Akshay Kumar’s film ‘ Laxmi Bomb’ would also release directly on an OTT platform.
