Vidya Balan starrer biopic Shakuntala Devi will be releasing on an OTT platform instead of the theatres!
Owing to the lockdown in the country, businesses have been facing huge losses. The entertainment industry too has incurred losses. And hence the makers are now looking for alternate ways to release their films. After Gulabo Sitabo, Vidya Balan starrer Shakuntala Devi is also going to have an OTT release.
The biopic will release on the online streaming platform Amazon Prime. Vidya seemed happy as she herself shared the news with everyone. She tweeted, “Delighted to announce that you will get to see #ShakuntalaDevi very soon on @PrimeVideo with all your loved ones. Thrilled that we will be able to entertain you in these unprecedented times. #WorldPremiereOnPrime #ShakuntalaDeviOnPrime.”
It was yesterday only when the film Gulaabo Sitabo was announced to release on Amazon prime. The film stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles. It will be available on the platform on June 12.
Meanwhile, talking about Shakuntala Devi, it is based on the life of the genius mathematician Shakuntala ji. Anu Menon has written and directed the project. Apart from Vidya Balan, the film also stars Sanya Malhotra Amit Sadh and Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles.
