Kajol starrer ‘Tribhanga’ which is a Netflix original release is likely to hit the screens later this year. Probable reason being never-ending coronavirus lockdown.
As we all know that due to the coronavirus pandemic all Indian theatres have been shut down since March-end with no hope of opening in the near future. So, the film industry has shifted its focus from releasing their projects in theatres to online OTT platforms.
Talking about Tribhanga, it will be produced by Ajay Devgn under his home banner Ajay Devgn Films and directed by Renuka Shahane with Ajay’s lady love Kajol playing the lead character. Kajol will share the screen space with actors Tanvi Azmi and Mithila Palkar.
On the other hand, talking about the plot, Tribhanga is an Odissi dance pose that is disjointed and asymmetrical, yet mesmerizing and sensuous, so much like the lives of the three women characters of the film — Nayan, Anu, and Masha.
Its shooting has been completed and post-production work is going on. Its planned release date was set in 2021. But, Netflix urged the makers to pull the release to this year itself as demand is pretty high. Talking about the same, a source revealed to Mid Day,
“While Netflix has several offerings lined up, Tribhanga is one of its few projects that are close to the finish line. The editing is complete; only the background music and VFX are pending. So, the OTT platform has requested the producer to expedite the delivery of the final product.”
Whilst co-producer Siddharth Malhotra shared,
“We have not discussed a date yet, but given the current situation, Tribhanga may drop online this year. It can be confirmed only after we submit the film to Netflix. After the delivery, the OTT service has its internal processes, which take a month or two.”
Siddharth concluded his talk by saying,
“We can’t resume job until the studios open their doors. Considering the work remaining on sound effects and VFX, we will need a month or two to deliver the final product. Even if the lockdown is lifted by mid-May, we should be able to deliver it latest by July.”
