Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, the late Sushant Singh Rajput, Abhishek Bachchan, Vidyut Jammwal and Kunal Kemmu will be getting their movies to be released on OTT. As we know theatres are closed and there is still no sign of re-opening of them in near future. So, the filmmakers has decided to release their films on digital platforms.
On Monday, the OTT service confirmed that biggies including the Akshay Kumar-starrer “Laxmmi Bomb“, Ajay Devgn’s “Bhuj: The Pride Of India”, “Sadak 2” starring Alia Bhatt, Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film “Dil Bechara”, “The Big Bull” which marks the return of Abhishek Bachchan, the Vidyut Jammwal-starrer “Khuda Haafiz” and “Lootcase” featuring Kunal Kemmu will directly release on Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex, a platform that the streaming service launched on Monday.
Talking about taking “Laxmmi Bomb” directly to a digital platform, Akshay said: “The movie is extremely dear to me as it is something unique I have attempted for the first time! It is an entertaining mélange of horror and humour and it has a strong social message attached to it! I am certain that this movie will bring joy and hope for everyone in these trying times!” “Having done a hundred films, I definitely took it for granted that theatres were where our films were meant to play. However, two things happened suddenly and almost simultaneously.
The corona pandemic threw all our comfort worlds into a tizzy. And, at the same time the OTT medium that was a fairly new phenomenon gained a huge significance as far as consuming entertainment is concerned,” Ajay said. “In the future, theatres and OTT will move in parallel. Both options offer their own strengths. The platform will showcase ‘Bhuj: The Pride of India’ across the length and breadth of the country. I think people will once again start looking forward to new film releases,” he added. Alia is very excited about the digital premiere of “Sadak 2”, which is directed by Mahesh Bhatt.
“It was my first time working with my father, which makes this a dream come true. It has a very new but relevant emotional pulse, with an amazing cast. Working with Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja has been magical. These are extraordinary and difficult times and all of us are trying to get through it, taking each day at a time. My father always says that a filmmaker’s destination is the audience’s heart,” she said.
About the release of “The Big Bull”, actor Abhishek Bachchan said: “There is nothing greater than the joy of being able to entertain someone through movies and great storytelling. And that’s exactly what ‘The Big Bull’ will do – it will keep audiences hooked till the very end.” “We are happy to partner with the best directors and most talented actors, and provide them with a platform to present their masterpieces,” said Uday Shankar, president, The Walt Disney Company APAC and Chairman, Star & Disney India.
