Skipping a theatrical release, Bhoot Police will directly release on OTT platforms. The movie is produced by Ramesh Taurani who confirmed this news.
With theatre chains being closed across the country, Bhoot Police is the latest Bollywood movie going forward with a digital release. Producer Ramesh Taurani confirmed the news of the movie's digital release on Wednesday. The film was earlier expected to have a theatrical release on September 10 this year. The much-awaited horror-comedy will have Arjun Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Yami Gautam, and Jacqueline Fernandez in pivotal roles.
In an interview with ETimes, producer Ramesh Taurani said that he doesn't see the theatres opening before November this year, and that too with reduced capacity.
Speaking about not giving up his initial September release date, Taurani said that given the current situation, he preferred to stick to the original month, but release it on a OTT platform.
Upon being asked the reason he chose to go for a digital release, the producer said that he got a good deal. The producer even clarified that theatrical release remains his first preference and that he would prefer a theatrical release for his next movie.
The horror-comedy is directed by Pawan Kripalani, who shared his experience about working with Saif Ali Khan and Arjun Kapoor. "I am thrilled to have Saif and Arjun come together for this entertaining feature. Both of them will be seen bringing their trademark fun elements to the brand new avatars they will portray in this film.”
The spooky poster of the movie was shared by the makers in February.
