A week after the Rakshit Shetty-led film’s India OTT premiere, the Hemanth M Rao is now available to its global audience as well
When will Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side B be available on OTT? This was one of the most widely asked questions about the second part of Hemanth M Rao’s intense love story led by Rakshit Shetty, besides, of course, queries about its theatrical outing, which was also delayed multiple times. After announcing a 7-week gap release for Side A and Side B, the latter eventually came to theatres a good 77 days later on November 17. Then, of course, everyone thought it would be on OTT within a month, just like Side A, but that was not to be.
Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side B eventually came on Amazon Prime Video, which also houses Side A, on January 25, but the film was available only to viewers in India then. Naturally, fans who’d been waiting eagerly for it in other parts of the world had been flooding both Rakshit, who’s also produced the film, and Hemanth with queries about its availability in other locations and that seems to have been answered today. As of February 3, Sapta Sagaradaache Ello Side B is available in the UK, USA, Canada, among others.
With Sapta Sagaradaache Ello out of the way, both Rakshit and Hemanth have moved on to their next projects. While Hemanth recently announced that he will be making an action drama with Century Star Shivarajkumar in the lead, which is likely to go on floors shortly, the latest on Rakshit is that he may have to also fill in as producer for his return to direction Richard Anthony.
Rakshit was supposed to collaborate with Hombale Films for the film that will serve as prequel and sequel to the events of Ulidavaru Kandanthe, but that has apparently fallen through. Official announcements on this are expected soon. The actor-filmmaker has, however, been very vocal that he wants to direct a slew of his scripts before returning to collaborate with other filmmakers. He wants to get Richard Anthony, a 2-part Punyakoti and Midway to Moksha out of the way as soon as possible.
