Vidyut Jammwal starrer ‘The Power’, directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and produced by Vijay Galani, has been sold to Zee 5. The film also features Shruti Haasan in a pivotal role.
A trade source told a leading daily, “It’s an ode to Godfather and the makers were looking to release it in the theatre in summer 2020. However, after the pandemic, the release was indefinitely delayed. While for most producers, the pandemic resulted in losses, for The Power, it proved to be a blessing in disguise as they makers managed to fetch a reasonable sum for the direct to OTT premiere.”
“They have got the digital and satellite rights of the film, considering that the genre does well on the television. A release date announcement will follow soon. The amount paid by Zee 5 for The Power is slightly higher than Khuda Haafiz due to Mahesh Manjrekar, who has a credible name in the industry and the scale of The Power, which is said to be mounted well”, added the source.
