As we know that due to coronavirus lockdown most of the filmmakers have decided to release their movies on digital platforms.Recently, Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khuranna starrer ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ is released on Amazon Prime Video.Fans of Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and other stars are celebrating in for a treat if all goes as expected. It was on a lazy Sunday afternoon that Disney+ announced its virtual press conference with Bollywood stars. They also hinted about the stars making some big announcement and their fans were quick in predicting if it’s for their upcoming OTT releases. However, for the ones who are smart enough would understand this was just the beginning.
As the the cases of COVID-19 continue to rise in the country, the government is not really in favour of opening theatres and multiplexes. And the same concern has prompted the producers to hunt for different alternatives, even it means ditching their theatrical releases altogether. Disney+’s upcoming press conference is making fans anxious of its upcoming releases and their slate may include releases like Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb, Alia’s Sadak 2, Varun’s Coolie No 1, Ajay’s Bhuj: The Pride of India and Abhishek Bachchan’s The Big Bull. While this is just a prediction, netizens are fully convinced about its plausibility.
#LaxmmiBomb & other biggies announcement tomorrow at 4:30PM live on Disney + Hotstar.

While Dil Bechara has already been announced by Disney’s new OTT platform, they were planning to rope in some Bollywood biggies for the longest of time. Now if Laxmmi Bomb and Bhuj actually end up releasing on Disney+ Hotstar, it will only make their digital presence stronger.
