Release Date of Tollywood’s First Direct Online Release

Has the over hype for V killed the film?

Natural Star Nani and Sudheer Babu’s V has earned the distinction of the first Telugu big film to skip its theatrical release and stream online directly. Leading OTT Major, Amazon Prime Video bagged the Online Streaming Rights of the film for a hefty sum.

The film will be streamed from September 5th. This is the landmark 25th film in Nani’s career. Indraganti Mohan Krishna who introduced Nani as a hero with Ashta Chemma is wielding the megaphone for this film. Senior Producer Dil Raju is bankrolling it.

This deal may open the floodgates in Tollywood. The industry fairly managed to resist the temptation for around five months even as the biggies of other industries went for Online Release. V was supposed to release in March as Ugadi Special. The Lockdown was announced just two days before the movie release and it got postponed indefinitely.
