Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi’s upcoming film directed by Shakun Batra, under Dharma Productions, is reportedly set for release directly on digital.
A source told Bollywood Hungama, “In Shakun’s film, Deepika plays a fitness trainer and shares screen space with both Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday. Now, the film is based on an extramarital affair that complicates the relationship between Deepika and Ananya’s characters who are sisters. Apparently, the film contains a rather high amount of intimate scenes that will not go down too well with the censor board. And editing out the scenes will greatly impact the film overall.”
The source added, “The OTT domain currently has more relaxed rules when it comes to on-screen intimacy, which pushed the makers to opt for a direct to OTT release over a conventional theatrical release.”
The film is set to release in 2022.
