With the rising cases of COVID-19, the governments of different states decided to shut down the theatres. The filmmakers are back to the same situation where they had new films ready for a release. The OTT platforms are planning to woo maximum filmmakers with fancy offers and a streaming platform also offered a fancy deal to Kichcha Sudeep for his upcoming pan-India big-budgeted flick Vikranth Rona. But, Sudeep turned down the 100 Cr offer for the film.
The film unit initially planned to release the film on 24th February in theatres but now, the release might not be possible because of the pandemic situation. In a recent press interaction, Sudeep opened up about his film.
“We are releasing the film in 14 languages and 55 countries. Our film received a fancy deal for a direct OTT release. The platform offered 100 Cr and it is a huge thing. However, we decided to give the audience a theatrical experience and turned down the deal.” said the actor.
Apart from Kichcha Sudeep, the movie also features Nirup Bhandari, Neetha Ashok and Jacqueline Fernandez in key roles. Jack Manjunath, Shalini Manjunath produced the film jointly under the Shalini Arts banner. Alankar Pandian (Invenio Films) co-produced the film.
