All around the world, film releases have been stalled due to the Corona Virus pandemic. Daily-wage workers related to the industry are finding it difficult to earn their daily bread. Even small actors are struggling in these tough times.
In such difficult situations, Bollywood showbiz business has come to a standstill. According to an article published on Blog2Bollywood, the release of several films has taken a back seat. Consequently this has led some production houses to consider releasing their films directly on digital platforms.
There were also reports of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ directly releasing on OTT platforms. Reportedly the same is been followed for Salman Khan’s most awaited film ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai.’
Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai was scheduled to hit the theatres on Eid 2020, but the pandemic has ruined it all. Now the film will reportedly release on an OTT platform. Reports suggest that the makers of Radhe have demanded a whopping Rs 250 crore for the digital rights of the film.
However, this is not actual truth as per Salman Khan’s business manager Jordy Parel. He admitted that the team of Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is considering for an OTT release. But as of now, there has been no mention of the amount.
Jordy added that few sequences and songs are yet to be filmed. On being asked if the makers would want a big screen release too post lockdown, he said that it seems unlikely that the audience would feel safe to watch the film in theatres for next 3-4 months. He said that the team will keep a tab on the situation and then take a call accordingly.
Helmed by Prabhudeva, Radhe marks the third collaboration between Salman and the director after Wanted and Dabangg 3. Disha Patani will be sharing screen space opposite Salman in the film which is touted to a spin off of Wanted (2009).
