Sonam Kapoor is eagerly waiting to return to the film industry following the birth of her child, with the official remake of the 2011 Korean film ‘Blind’. The movie was originally scheduled to hit the big screens in 2022, but pandemic limitations forced a postponement. The creators of ‘Blind’ decided for an OTT release after this, but it appears that the project has been in difficulty ever since.
Reportedly, The release date of ‘Blind’ has been postponed again. A reliable source told Bollywood Hungama, “Initially Blind was to see a theatrical release, but due to the pandemic, it was decided to release the film directly on OTT. Now, while the theatrical release of the film still remains a formality, the makers of the film are having a tough time finding takers for its OTT release.”
“The makers of Blind are looking to sell the film for a staggering Rs. 40 cr. This high asking amount is keeping OTT players in the market away. Though the film will continue with its theatrical release pattern, it has now only become a formality before its sale to any streaming platform. However, with no OTT platform ready to shell out Rs. 40 cr. to acquire the venture, the release of Blind seems to be in limbo” the source added.

While talking about the venture issues with OTT platforms the source stated, “The makers of Blind have quoted a staggering Rs. 40 cr. for streaming rights of the venture. Unfortunately, in today’s times, such an amount, shelling out such an amount is risky according to streaming platforms. Basically, neither the makers of Blind are ready to back down from the asking price and nor are streaming platforms ready to spend a sum like that on acquisition. Given this, Blind is certainly stuck in bind.”
It is yet unknown how ‘Blind’ will be released, and whether a theatrical release will be secured for the movie or not.
‘Blind’ Directed by filmmaker Shome Makhija, stars Sonam Kapoor, Purab Kohli, Vinay Pathak, and Lillete Dubey.
