Ram Pothineni’s RED is undoubtedly one of the much awaited Telugu movies of 2020. The action thriller was scheduled to hit the theaters on April 9, 2020 but it got postponed due to Coronavirus scare.
With theaters and cinema halls throughout the country remain shut, Indian Cinema is currently shifting its allegiance to the OTT platform such as Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hotstar and others.
Of course, millions of people left disheartened for not getting to watch new releases in cinema halls, but with these much anticipated movies going digital, it has surely succeeded in beating lockdown blues.
We have already covered an article informing movies directly releasing on OTT platforms. OTT platforms have been offering a huge amount to the makers of the films to get their movies directly released on digital platform. However, multiple producers have refused to do so citing various reasons.
According to the latest buzz, Ram Pothineni’s RED, which is all set for release, has also been offered a sizable amount but producers seem to be not in a mood to release it on OTT platform rather than the silver screen.

In an interview, Ram Pothineni had recently said some interesting things about the OTT deal. He had said that RED is full of thrills and entertainment that can only be enjoyed to the fullest on the big screens.
He had also said that he will wait until the condition returns to normalcy in India to give audience that experience. He also revealed that they got lucrative offer but they prefer theatrical release rather than digital.
Directed by Kishore Tirumala and co-produced by Krishna Chaitanya and Sravanthi Ravi Kishore under Sri Sravanthi Movies, RED is an official remake of Tamil movie Thadam. The story of RED is written by Magizh Thirumeni, who had written and helmed the Original film.
