It seems the makers of Vikrant Rona are unshakeable in their resolution to bring the action-adventure film to audiences on the big screen. Even with many films postponing their theatrical releases due to the pandemic, the makers have reportedly said no to big offers from OTT platforms to make the film a direct digital release.
The filmmakers were offered sums that went up to almost Rs 100 crore to give the film an OTT release. The particular offer had been made by a streaming giant after the filmmakers had held a private screening of the movie for them. One of the film’s producers, Jack Manjunath, seemed to have confirmed the same when interacting with the media. The producer had admitted that the offer had been made to them, but they had said no, as the team staunchly believed that the film had to be experienced in theatres. With its fantasy and rich visual elements, the film could be fully enjoyed in 3D, he said.
The film’s director, Anup Bhandari, echoed the same sentiment, talking about how the 3D elements had been superbly made and how his vision was that audiences should thoroughly enjoy the film on the big screen itself. He nonetheless expressed his gratitude and thrill at the offer, saying that it reflected how the film is getting the attention it deserves.
The upcoming film stars Kiccha Sudeep in the lead role, along with Jacqueline Fernandez, Nirup Bhandari, and Neetha Ashok. The film is produced by Jack and Shalini Manjunath, under the banner of Shalini Arts, along with Alankar Pandian of Invenio Films.
