Disney+Hotstar striking a whopping deal of 120cr for Laxmmi Bomb
Sajid Ali -
In these trying times, one Industry which has taken a big dip is Film Industry as it comprises multiple levels of services accommodating millions of jobs. This situation is pushing the film producers to skip theatrical release and opt for direct to web release. That being said many filmmakers have announced their digital release, whereas few are still negotiating a better deal.
Recently there’s a buzz around that Disney+Hotstar is persuading the makers of Laxmmi Bomb for a direct to web release. And it’s said that a whopping deal of 120crs has been offered by Disney+Hotstar to procure the release rights of Laxmmi Bomb. We still have no official confirmation about the deal going down, but if so then it’s going to pave way for a larger market for the filmmakers who have been stranded with their films for theatrical release.
Laxmmi Bomb was initially scheduled to release on May 22nd, 2020 worldwide, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic that didn’t materialize and there’s a chunk of post-production yet to complete. If everything goes well, we might see Laxmmi Bomb making its digital premiere soon on Disney+Hotstar.
Laxmmi Bomb is produced by Cape of Good Films in association with Tushar Entertainment House and Shabinaa Entertainment. The film is directed by Raghava Lawrence. Laxmmi Bomb has Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani in the lead with Tusshar Kapoor and Sharad Kelkar playing vital roles.
