2021’s most awaited film, “Brahmastra” is taking a while to release due to the pandemic and is the last film in the line of Fox Star Studios.
Fox Star Studios has released all the other films on Disney+Hotsar. Now, Disney+Hotstar has asked the studio if they can be the official streaming platform for Brahmastra.
A source says, “Disney+ Hotstar has now asked Fox Star Studios if they can hand over Brahmastra for their streaming platform. What it means is, Disney+ Hotstar wants Brahmastra to bypass theatrical release and arrive on its platform directly. They feel Brahmastra is a keenly awaited biggie and if it gets premiered on their platform, it’ll fetch them record streams.”
“Producer Karan Johar, however, has not shown interest. He believes that the VFX heavy, grand film would be best enjoyed in cinemas,” the source continued.
Brahmastra was launched as a trilogy with Fox Star Studios but now that the Studio is exiting the business, the question arises on the following two parts of the movie. A source says, “As of now, there are no talks on the Brahmastra sequels. All the efforts of Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios are on completing the first part. The shoot of the film is to get over this month after which the team will fully concentrate on the post-production.”
The source continues, “Though Fox Star Studios is exiting the business, the upcoming parts might still be made. Karan Johar is looking forward to the response to the first part. If it emerges a success, he’ll go ahead with the trilogy as planned but maybe with some other studio.”
Where do you think should the movie release? OTT or Cinemas?
