director, Raghava Lawrence is already in talks with actor Akshay Kumar and he also feels that producers shouldn’t bear any kind of losses and hence might just release on the OTT platform.
Akshay, director Raghava Lawrence and the producers are discussing the offer. There’s a lot of post-production work left on the movie, including editing, background music, mixing and VFX. Since the team is working from home, the process is taking longer than usual. However, the makers are hoping to have the film ready by June. Although currently, the lockdown is on till May 3, theatres may continue to remain closed to ensure social distancing. In such a scenario, the team may consider having a direct-to-web release,”
“Akshay wants to make sure none of the invested parties makes losses, and that the movie reaches a wide audience. While Disney+Hotstar ensures a worldwide reach, making the film available across small towns in India will be a concern for them.”
Well, the deal sounds fair. Isn’t it? We never know for how long the pandemic is going to go and nobody should be in a loss. Any which way, the series and films released during this time are already doing great because everyone’s home and enjoying some me-time and watching stuff on the OTT platforms.
Laxmmi Bomb headlined by Akshay Kumar also stars Kiara Advani in the lead role. The film, which is at its post-production state, was earlier slated to hit theatres on May 22
