The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is taking a toll on the film business. Many film releases have been put on hold. Since it is indefinite that when the lockdown will be lifted and the theaters will reopen some filmmakers are considering OTT to release their films during the lockdown period itself.
Now, according to the information, Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani starrer Shershaah will also be releasing on the OTT. Based on the life of Kargil Martyr Vikram Batra the film was supposed to hit the theaters on 3rd July 2020.
As per the reports, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions is considering some films to release on the digital platform. A daily quoted a source as saying, “Dharma has been in talks with Netflix to sell their smaller budget ventures to them for a web premiere. They have already sold off Janhvi Kapoor starrer Gunjan Saxena and now, they are in advance discussed with the OTT platform for the Sidharth-Kiara film as well. There’s no hope of people returning to theatres in a few months from now, because of the fear psychosis the situation has called for. So, it seemed more practical for the production house to put out a film like Shershaah that has been mounted on a moderate budget online.”
However, we are still waiting for the official announcement.
