Rumours go Over The Top
Updated: May 24
Ever since a trade analyst came online a few days ago to put out a blind item about a big film making its debut on a digital platform, rumours are flying hard and fast about all big films which could have an Over The Top (OTT) release instead of premiering in the theatres owing to the uncertainty about when the theatres will actually open.
The L Bomb was dropped as it was being said that Laxmmi Bomb starring Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani and directed by Raghava Lawrence – the remake of Kanchana – Muni 2 would have an OTT release. While everyone around the film have not commented on it, the speculations have increased manifold.
The latest in the rumours has been that the film has been sold for double the price that it was made according to a trade analyst.
We tried to speak to Fox Star Studios who are backing the film produced by Shabina Khan and Tusshar Kapoor – but there was no reply by the time this article went to press.
“Other rumours also include ’83 and Sooryavanshi debuting on OTT, which the head of Reliance Entertainment – Shibhashish Sarkar denied outright. There was one more rumour about the Karan Johar produced and Sidharth Malhotra starrer Shershaah going on OTT, which has also been denied,” say our sources.
But then the trade says that we might soon hear of stories about smaller to medium budget films getting on to the OTT bandwagon for the release. Watch this space tomorrow.
