While Akshay Kumar starrer Laxmmi Bomb was supposed to hit the theatres on May 22, the makers are now thinking about an OTT release!
Just like all other industries, the film industry is currently at a halt. Several releases have been pushed to an indefinite time. Amid the situation of lockdown, now the makers of film Laxmmi Bomb are thinking of an OTT release on Disney Plus Hotstar.
A source told Mid Day, “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.”
The actor wants to make sure none of the invested parties make 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, according to the source.
However, there has been no official confirmation on the same yet.
Earlier, Akshay Kumar and the team had postponed the release of Sooryavanshi due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
