Disney Bypasses Theaters in India

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic the Walt Disney  Company has made some momentous decisions in India. Variety reports that leading Indian streamer Disney Plus Hotstar has added six titles, featuring some of the biggest Bollywood stars, that will bypass cinemas and release directly on the service. Sushant Singh Rajput-starring “Dil Bechara” was announced earlier.

  • horror comedy “Laxmmi Bomb,” starring Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani;
  • war drama “Bhuj: The Pride of India,” starring Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha;
  • “Sadak 2,” a sequel to 1991 romantic thriller “Sadak,” starring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt;
  • financial crime drama “The Big Bull,” starring Abhishek Bachchan and Ileana D’Cruz;
  • comedy “Lootcase,” featuring Kunal Kemmu and Rasika Duggal;
  • and action romance “Khuda Haafiz,” starring Vidyut Jammwal and Shivaleeka Oberoi.

The films will roll out on the Disney Plus Hotstar’s newly launched ‘Multiplex’ strand from July through October. Moves to release feature films on streaming platforms, and bypass theaters, have raised the ire of exhibitors. But cinemas across India have been shuttered since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
