Actress Rakul Preet Singh has difference of opinions with Anushka Shetty, Nani and Ram Pothineni, who are opposing the streaming of their films Nishabdham, V and Red before their theatrical release.
Anushka Shetty, Nani and Ram Pothineni have already completed the shooting for their upcoming movies Nishabdham, V and Red respectively. The makers had even planned to release them in March and April, when the cinema halls were shutdown due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The producers of these films initial agreed to delay their release, but they feared suffering loses after the lockdown was extended twice. The owners of OTT platforms tried to cash in on the situation and approached them for the rights. The makers considered this option to save themselves from loses.
But Anushka Shetty, Nani and Ram Pothineni were not happy with the development, as they wanted their movies to release first in the cinema halls. They reportedly managed to convince the producers to delay their release until the reopening of the theatres. But Rakul Preet Singh, who has six films in her kitty, has a different view point on this crisis. She says that the producers has a final call on her films.
But unlike Anushka, Nani and Ram, Rakul Preet Singh is least bothered about the platform. “Big film like a Sooryavanshi is a theatre film and people would like to come to cinemas to watch it. I would want these films to be out in cinema because the magic of the big screen is different,” the Hindustan Times quoted the actress as saying.
Rakul Preet Singh added, “They want their product to be out because a lot of money is riding on it and they would want a digital release. Once the films are ready, it is a producer’s call to release it theatrically or digitally. They also things to normalize and films to come back in theatres but if they think digital is right, well you know they are the best ones to decide.”
