The second wave of COVID-19 is like wildfire. With cases on the rise and the country gradually going back in lockdown, the movie business is stagnant yet again. While some actors, like Salman Khan with Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is going ahead with a theatrical release along with OTT, many filmmakers have not found it possible to release in limited occupancy theatres.
One big film that’s en route to an OTT platform is Akshay Kumar’s Bellbottom. The film is directed by Ranjit Tiwari and stars Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and lleana DCruz in pivotal roles. A source shared with an online portal that the producers have worked out the finances with an online streaming platform and the film is mostly ready for an OTT release.
This will be Akshay Kumar’s second film to opt out of a theatrical release. The first was Laxxmi and had a decent review after its online release.
