Earlier, there were speculations about Rashmi Rocket, starring Taapsee Pannu, to be released directly on an OTT platform. The makers were reportedly talking with a number of streaming platforms for the same. According to the latest information, this Akarsh Khurana-directed film would be released on Zee 5 and has been sold for a whopping Rs 58 crore.
“This is a recent development and all the parties involved are very happy with the deal. For now, Zee 5 is aiming for a Dussehra release of the film,” informs a source close to the development to Pinkvilla.
Rashmi Rocket is said to be about an athlete’s journey, and in addition to Taapsee, Priyanshu Painyuli plays a key role in this Ronnie Screwvala movie. The actress finished filming for the film in Gujarat earlier this year.
“Not sure if I have the time and space to explain how this film actually happened. From the basic storyline I heard in Chennai 3 years back to actually complete its filming against all odds in these challenging times. This was one hell of a driven team effort! I’m going to reserve the details for later coz I’m sure we have many more battles to fight till the release but what I can say is this is one team that’s gonna do it all with a smile and most effortlessly coz the captain of this ship @akvarious believes in working strictly in between chilling with bunch of friends on set, instead of the other way round,” Taapsee wrote on Instagram on the last day of the shoot.
