The movie, which marks the second directorial of Prithviraj, is a feel-good movie that also stars Kalyani Priyadarshan, Meena, Kaniha and Unni Mukundan
Mollywood actor Prithviraj Sukumaran was among the first in the industry to predict that digital releases will become a norm. With the actor’s two movies – Cold Case and Kuruthi – already releasing directly on Amazon Prime Video and the third one, Bhramam, already announcing its Indian OTT premiere on October 7, the audiences are also keen to know the status of the much-anticipated Bro Daddy, which has Mohanlal in the lead and marks Prithviraj’s second directorial.
Talking to RJ and actor Mithun Ramesh in an interview in Dubai, Prithviraj cleared the air about the release of Bro Daddy, which he completed shooting earlier this month.
“That’s up to the producer. On what basis can we say that we will release our movie only in theatres? When are theatres going to reopen? We don’t know,” he said. “So, when a producer is investing so much money, I can’t put forth a condition that the movie should be released only in theatres. I am happy whichever way it releases; my aim is that it has to reach the audience.”
The actor, however, reiterated that like every other film, Bro Daddy is also made for the theatres but the final decision is not his hands. The movie, which also has Kalyani Priyadarshan, Meena, Kaniha, Jagadeesh and Unni Mukundan, has Mohanlal and Prithviraj playing father and son, respectively.
Meanwhile, Prithviraj’s Bhramam, which is the Malayalam remake of Andhadhun, will release in both theatres and OTTs. The film will release in theatres across the world but in India, it will premiere on OTTs on October 7. The movie, directed by Ravi K Chandran, also has Mamta Mohandas, Raashi Khanna and Unni Mukundan as part of the cast.
In the interview, Prithviraj had also shared an update on Aadujeevitham, which is expected to resume shooting by the end of this year in Algeria. “We have a 40-day shoot in Algeria and then we travel to Jordan for a big schedule, and then we wrap up in India,” concluded the actor.
