Mahesh Manjrekar’s long awaited film ‘The Power’ is finally due to release. As with many films this year, Manjrekar will not been releasing the film on the big screens, instead it will be shown on ZEE5 in 2021.
Reported on Mid-Day, producer Vijay Galani explains the decision for a digital release, “In these uncertain times, OTT is the best option available. Although the action thriller is more suited for a theatrical release, we don’t know how long it will be before things normalise, so we have decided to not wait.”
Starring Vidyut Jammwal as a gangster and Shruti Hassan as his love interest, ‘The Power’ has been in the making since 2018, Galani shares why it’s taken so long for the film to be completed, “It took a while due to the high-octane action sequences. With about 18 villains, we were looking to release the film in the first half of 2020, but the pandemic broke out.”
