Cash counters across India have been silenced in recent times with businesses, schools, colleges, offices, shopping malls, movie theaters and amusement parks all closed for the known reason everyone unless they literally lived under a rock for the last couple of months.
After the foreclosure, the Internet was the buzzword. From schools to meetings to businesses and even entertainment, everything is online. And thanks to the different streaming platforms, data consumption in the country has multiplied by several.
However, as the possibility of showing films in theaters close to home is practically impossible, the producers who have invested millions in the production of films like Kabir Khan from 1983, Laxmmi Bomb by Akshay Kumar and countless others fix huge losses, since there is always uncertainty as to when the lock will release.
If there had been no locking, these films would have been released or would be close to him. To cover the inevitable loss, the producers of these mega-movies are looking to skip theaters, instead of releasing them via a smartphone next to you.
Reports suggest that “83, which is based on the Indian cricket team's victory in 1983 and that Ranveer Singh plays victorious captain Kapil Dev, was offered 143 crores by a” streaming platform “for an outing digital. The film was due out on April 10 but was delayed due to the coronavirus epidemic.
For the crazy cricket nation that is already hungry to watch the IPL, since this year's edition has been postponed indefinitely, this could have been a source of celebration. however, Bollywood Hungama reports that the creators of ’83 rejected the offer, stating that “83 was designed for a big screen experience. Right now there is no intention or interest on the part of the directors or of us as producers to bring these films to the small screen. “
While the producers of the highly anticipated ’83 film are confident that the situation will return to normal in the next 6 months and that they are ready to wait, Akshay Kumar would have eager to publish his thriller-comedy Laxmmi Bomb digitally on Disney + Hotstar to recover certain costs.
The film not only missed its release date, but is still in the post-production phase due to the lock-up. By the way, Laxmmi Bomb was produced by Disney-owned Fox Star Studios, hence the chances of release on Disney + Hotstar is greater than 83 by cutting to the streaming platform.
Although we, like many others, would have liked to relive the 1983 Cricket World Cup tried by Ranveer Singh and others and enjoy every piece of cricket during this full-time stress, in the end, it was the producers who will take a call for the draw. We hope they call it correctly so that we can watch Ranveer create magic on the screen and let us live (or relive as the case may be) those historic moments when Kapil and his team made the whole country proud.
And with the soul of the country shaken and agitated by the pandemic, the mixture of Cricket, Bollywood and the Internet could well be a cocktail hell. Is not it?
