Rakshit Shetty: 777 Charlie non-Kannada OTT outing will be two weeks after original film comes on Voot Select
The film was to release on Dec 31 last year, but was pushed ahead.

Actor-producer Rakshit Shetty’s 777 Charlie is still doing fairly decent business in theatres, but the film has now also dropped on OTT, albeit in Kannada only. This, Rakshit told a news portal, is because he had a pre-release agreement with his digital partner, Voot Select, to make the film available by the 49th day. While a lot of people have seen 777 Charlie in movie halls, Rakshit is confident that even more will catch it on Voot Select now.

The question among audiences in other centres, of course is as to when it will be available in the other four languages, considering that 777 Charlie had released in Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu too. Rakshit says that the other language OTT release maybe a good two weeks later. The actor-producer, whose Paramvah Studios backed the Kiranraj K directorial, added that he believes that the film is best viewed in its original language and hoped that many would catch it on Voot Select. The earliest the other language versions will drop on Amazon Prime is by the 60th day of the film’s theatrical release, he said.

Talking about what worked for the film, Rakshit said that 777 Charlie is a story that the entire family can sit together and watch. But, more importantly, it is a story that does not age and will have the same level of appeal as it does now, 10 years later.

777 Charlie had released in theatres on June 10 this year. It was earlier meant to be an end of the year release in 2021, but was pushed ahead amid fears of a third wave of the pandemic, possible restrictions on theatre occupancy, etc. The film, which has music by Nobin Paul, also stars Sangeetha Sringeri, Gopalkrishna Deshpande and Raj B Shetty in pivotal roles.
