After the release of ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ last week on ZEEPlex, rumours are rife that the company is reportedly planning a similar digital release for ‘Maidaan’ starring Ajay Devgn.
‘Maidaan’, which is owned by ZEE Studios, is directed by’ Badhaai Ho’ fame, Amit Sharma.
A source told Bollywood Hungama, “The industry has now realised that if a film stars a big name, then a simultaneous release in cinemas and on a platform like ZeePlex can be an interesting proposition. Hence, Zee’s top honchos wasted no time and have already approached around 4-5 highly awaited biggies. The makers are in talks with Zee and this shows how widely ZeePlex has got acceptance.”
The source continued, “It is quite possible that makers of Sooryavanshi and ‘83 are in talks. Both these films have been delayed by more than a year. Also, Antim: The Final Truth reportedly will take the hybrid release route. Meanwhile, Maidaan is a film of Zee Studios and it will be in contention. Apart from these, a couple of big-budgeted South films might also be interested.”
There is also speculation about ZEE Studios acquiring Salman Khan’s next ‘Antim: The Final Truth’.
