If the rumors are true, then the producers of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Tamannaah Bhatia starrer ‘Bole Chudiyan’ are in talks with an OTT platform to stream the film.
As we have already reported some days back that Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Ghoomketu will be streamed on ZEE5 coming May 22nd, 2020. Ghoomketu will feature Anurag Kashyap in the leading role along with Amitabh Bachchan, Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha giving special appearances.
Now, reports are coming that not only Ghoomketu but another film of Nawazuddin will also be taking the OTT release route to reach the box office audience.
Seeing the current status of the coronavirus pandemic on a global scale, it seems that theatres will not be the only route left for reaching box office audiences, OTT platforms are increasingly believed to replace them.
Coming back to Bole Chudiyan, it features Tamannaah Bhatia as the female lead and is helmed by debutant Shamas Siddiqui.
Giving an insight into the same, co-producer of the film, Rajesh Bhatia told Mid Day,
“Cinema is a great medium, but, it doesn’t seem like theatres will start functioning within the next six months. We are hence open to the idea of an OTT release. If the film beams to 200 countries, we think that’s a great [deal] for the right price.”
Bhatia concluded his interaction with words,
“We are responsible to our investors. [We must] meet a timely release, and generate revenue. Cash flow needs to be generated [and directed towards] forthcoming productions.”
Sometime back, Shamas via his Twitter page disclosed that Bole Chudiyan is in its editing stage. His tweet read,
“#BoleChudiyan-Edit Complete, So happy 2 announce da Edit completion of Our film with our magical editor Praveen Kathikuloth, Great teamwork @woodpeckermv @Nawazuddin_S @tamannaahspeaks @rajpalofficial @Kabirduhansingh #AdityaShrivastav @zaverikiran9 #RajeshBhatia & team”
The film also features Kabir Duhan Singh, Rajpal Yadav, and Aditya Srivastava in pivotal roles.
There is an interesting fact to know about Bole Chudiyan, before Tamannaah, makers had roped in Mouni Roy to play the female lead.
