Alia Bhatt’s Sadak 2 to directly release on OTT platform, Confirms Mahesh Bhatt

Alia Bhatt starrer Sadak 2 to skip a theatrical release. 

The outbreak of Coronavirus has brought the entire TV and film industry to standstill. It has been more than two months since not a single movie hit the theaters across the country. At a time when theaters and multiplexes are closed, filmmakers and producers have left no option but to release their movies on OTT platforms like Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hotstar.

The latest filmmaker who has announced to directly release his upcoming film on OTT platform is Mahesh Bhatt. Yes, you read that right! Alia Bhatt starrer Sadak 2 to skip a theatrical release.

In an interview with PTI news agency, Mahesh Bhatt said, “It (number of COVID-19 cases) is increasing day-by-day instead of subsiding. In this situation do you think the theatres will open? And even if they do and Sadak 2 is released, will people go to watch it? People have to protect their families. Today, life is more important, I am compelled to come (on digital platform) because I don’t see any light in the near future. This is the best I can do to survive. There are certain things that you do, not out of choice but out of compulsion. This is the only option left. It is a no-brainer.”

However, he said that releasing movies on OTT platforms are a temporary phase. “Now that films are releasing on OTT, it doesn’t mean theatres will shut down. People need outing, big screen entertainment is fun. It is a temporary phase. We need to understand it rationally and not blast or put each other down. We should lift each other up. I have got no option, so I will definitely consider OTT. We have not made this film to put it in lock and key. We want to bring it to people so that they enjoy the film,” he said.

It is to be noted that they still have left two-day shoot for Sadak 2. The team is all set to shoot that in July.

“We have a two-day shoot left which we intend to begin next month. The post-production is going on in full swing simultaneously,” he added.

Besides Alia Bhatt, Sadak 2 features Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt in significant roles.
