With the current pandemic situation, the digital revolution has definitely begun, and some of the most well-known brands are hopping on board the OTT bandwagon. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, who hasn’t had a film released in almost two years, has completed production on her next project, a suspense thriller directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The project under discussion is a Hindi version of the Korean mystery thriller Blind.
While the film was originally intended for theatres, we now know that Sonam’s Blind adaptation will be released only on digital platform.
An informer tells BH, “Sujoy had thought of waiting it out for a theatrical release. He is in fact very happy with how the film has turned out. But given the third wave scare, and another shut down of theatres, he is being advised to not hold onto the movie anymore. He is now talking to three digital streaming companies and he will select the best deal.”
“Blind will be Sonam’s debut on OTT. It is only a logical move to opt for the web because theirs is a small film and they will easily recover the money. Theatrical business is even more dicey at this point. So it’s a good call,” says a trade source.
