Ekta Kapoors Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare gets a digital release??
Aparnna Hajirnis -
But now, given the lockdown in the country, producers are taking some tough calls with respect to their film projects. We hear that now, Ekta Kapoor has been in discussion with some of the prominent OTT platforms to release Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare. According to a report in Pinkvilla, 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 trade source tells Pinkvilla, "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 won't be functioning 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 was screened at several film festivals including the Busan Film Festival and the Glasgow Film Festival. An official announcement about the same will be made soon.
