Gunjan Saxena Makes Huge Profits Despite No Theatrical Release

Bollywood’s first major online release, Gulabo Sitabo is releasing on the 12th of this month. Gunjan Saxena starring Sridevi’s daughter, Jahnvi Kapoor is also announced for a direct online release. The online streaming rights of the movie were bagged by Netflix.

The streaming date is yet to be announced. There are reports that Netflix paid a whopping 70 crore for the streaming rights while the film budget is anywhere between 25-30 Crore. That means Gunjan Saxena is a massive profit venture despite having no theatrical release.

Gunjan Saxena is a biopic on the life of Indian Air Force pilot Gunjan Saxena who, along with Srividya Rajan, became the first Indian women fighter pilots to venture into a war zone. Gunjan rescued soldiers during the Kargil War in 1999 and was honored with the Shaurya Vir award for displaying courage and grit during the war.
