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.Follow @THEPANIPURI
