Hotstar Plus Disney has announced the game chasing in the world of OTT. After Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar has also announced the online release of several big films simultaneously. Hotstar is going to release not one or two but 7 big Hindi films directly on its platforms. It features Ajay Devgan starrer Bhuj the Pride of India and Akshay Kumar starrer Lakshmi Bomb. Now the question in people’s minds will be how much did the last hotstar deal with?
Till now, the films were first released at the box office. In such a situation, experts used to guess the earnings from the box office report. However, this is not an option at the time of release on OTT. Now the film earns only one. In such a situation, the question is how much money the films released on OTT have received. Actually, Laxmi Bomb and Bhuj have won in this case.
Pinkvilla in its report quoted the source as saying that Lakshmi Bomb signed a deal for 125 crores. At the same time, Ajay Devgan, Bhushan Kumar and Wazir Singh have bagged the best deal for Bhuj. The rights to the film have been bought by Hotstar for 112 crores. For Bhuj, this deal is considered too big.
Let us tell you that the release of OTT started with Shoojit Sarkar’s film Gulabo-Sitabo. After this there was a discussion that low budget films could be released directly on OTT. Apart from seven big films on Hotstar, Vidya Balan starrer Shakuntaladevi is scheduled to be released on Amazon Prime Video. At the same time, Karan Johar’s film Gunjan Saxena has gone to Netflix’s account. Bulbul, released under the banner of Anushka Sharma, has recently been released on Netflix.
