It seems the next film which could be being announced as ready to release on an OTT platform is ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’, starring Bhumi Pednekar and Konkona Sharma.
It’s thought that producer Ekta Kapoor is in talks with two platforms for the release of the film. A source is quoted by Pinkvilla, “”Negotiations are on at this point and they will settle for the best deal they get. Bhumi and Konkona’s film will definitely be releasing online but the team is currently just figuring out which digital giant they will sell it to. It all depends on the money each has to offer. Netflix and Amazon Prime are both in contention.” That also means that this would be Bhumi’s second digital project, after her brilliant stint in Lust Stories”.
Another source also said, “The film is mounted on a very small budget, like Alankrita’s last film Lipstick Under My Burkha. This is again a very socially relevant film, which caters to a particular target audience, which is also similar to what the OTT giants cater to. So it’s a good move on the makers’ part to sell it off. Theatres aren’t showing any signs of reopening in the next two months at least and if all was well, Balaji had initially planned to release Bhumi and Konkona’s movie around May itself”.
The film has so far been a festival film.
