If everything was normal, we would be watching so many released films in theaters now. But due to Coronavirus Pandemic around the world, all the theaters have been shut amid lockdown.
Just a few days ago, Amitabh Bachchan starrer Gulabo Sitabo and Vidya Balan starrer Shakuntala Devi have been announced to release on Amazon Prime. The makers aren’t waiting for theaters to reopen and are releasing their films online on OTT platforms.
Another film which now is in the queue of online release is Kiara Advani starrer Indoo Ki Jawaani.
According to a source, “Kiara’s film is completely ready and the post-production work is also almost done. The film was being planned for a release in the first week of June. Now, Nikkhil Advani and Monisha Advani, from Emmay Entertainment are in talks to release it on the web.”
Another trade source said, “It’s a good call for the makers. Indoo Ki Jawaani is a small budget good concept film, so they will easily recover their costs from the digital release. But currently, they are in talks with three big OTT platforms and whoever gives them the best price, they will sell it to them. They are in a good position.”
