It marks Kartik's first OTT movie which is directly releasing on this medium rather than a theatrical release.

Filmmakers in the Hindi film industry go through a wide range of topics, discussing different small communities living in our secular nation, one of which is the colourful culture filled Parsi community. Parsis have dwelled on the Indian subcontinent for many years and they grew primarily under British rule when they developed fortune with the opium trade.

Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, Freddy stars Kartik Aaryan, Alaya F, Jennifer Piccinato. It showcases the blur lines between love and obsession in this romantic thriller with surprising twists and sharp turns. It will be released on Disney Plus Hotstar on December 2. 

Considering the previous records of films based on the Parsi community, they don’t perform well at Box-office. Since these are quite dark, they avoid taking a route to the box-office. It has been mired with numerous controversies too earlier. Earlier, we broke that it was going to take place with Red Chillies Entertainment and Katrina as part of the movie. Ajay Bahl too made an exit as a director after Red Chillies scrapped the project. 

It has bad prospects at Box-office and it took the OTT route to release the spine-chilling film. Such a decision is considered in good faith for its team as well. It marks Kartik’s first OTT movie which is directly releasing on this medium rather than a theatrical release.
