One More Bollywood Biggie Opts For Direct-To-OTT Release

The immediate prospects are looking bleak for Bollywood. Theaters in Maharashtra are yet to open and the audience is not coming to theaters in other states as evident from the recent releases. So more movies are opting for a Direct-to-OTT release.

Vicky Kaushal’s big-ticket film, Sardar Udham Singh is the latest film that has taken this route. The movie directed by Shoojit Sircar has opted for a direct OTT release via Amazon Prime. The movie will have its premiere on the OTT Platform in the second week of October.

Sardar Udham Singh is the story of an Indian Revolutionary who assassinated Michael O Dwyer in London, who was behind the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre in 1919. Shoojit Sircar has called it his dream project. The film shooting was completed in December 2019 and the delay has prompted them to take this decision.
