There a lot of speculations around that multiple films may be getting OTT release, however, nothing was clear and officially announced. Now according to the latest report, Akshay Kumar’s much-awated horror comedy is diverted to OTT and it will release in June.
As per the information Fox Star Studios’s Vijay Singh, producer Tusshar Kapoor, and Akshay Kumar had a long discussion with Disney+Hotstar. The decision has been taken after both parties reached a common ground.
Since it is not clear when the theaters will reopen because of the ongoing pandemic OTT is a good choice.
“The principal shoot of Laxmmi Bomb was wrapped up in November last year, with some patch-work and reshooting done more recently in February. Director Raghava Lawerence is currently working on the final edit and post production of the film from Hyderabad, while Akshay is expected to send his dubbing tapes digitally to the director in a couple of days,” a source was quoted as saying.
“The combined value of the deal from the sale of digital and satellite rights is estimated to be around Rs. 90 to 100 crores, in addition to the income from music rights. Major chunk of the money goes in Akshay Kumar’s pocket, as apart from acting, he is also one of the producers on the film,” the source added.
While we are still waiting for the official confirmation, there are also reports that a lot of films will follow suit.
