Kartik Aaryan to be paid additional for OTT release of 'Dhamaka'?
While by now it is common knowledge that the film Dhamaka, starring Kartik Aaryan will go straight for an OTT release rather than being released theatrically, there is finally a reason for this shift. According to a Bollywood Hungama report, the actor was paid an additional 7 crores on top of the 10 crores that he is already being paid for the film.
The official Hindi remake of the 2013 Korean film The Terror Live is directed by Ram Madhvani and produced by Ronnie Screwvala. The producer first struck a deal with Aaryan that he would be getting 10 crores with additional profits from the theatrical release. Thus, while Netflix might acquire the rights to the film, he would be getting the additional 7 crores for the digital premiere which then convinced him for a direct to OTT release.
