Mammootty turned down a massive OTT deal for Kaathal

According to Friday Matinee, a popular OTT platform had a strong interest in bagging the digital rights of Kaathal - The Core. The team had approached actor-producer Mammootty with a whopping offer. Despite the discussion progressing to negotiation stages, the leading actor ultimately opted against a direct-to-OTT release.

Reports also indicate that the megastar declined the offer, because he was determined to release the film in the theatres first. Mammootty had a lot of faith in the film’s content, and was confident that it would be accepted by Malayalam cinema audiences. The positive reviews from both viewers and critics, along with the film’s successful box office performance, determine that the legendary actor’s decision was indeed right.
