Bollywood fans are all set to welcome a fresh pairing of Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor. Bawaal, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and starring Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor is all set to release on July 21 this year. However, reports have come out that the film will straight-up hit the OTT platform, Amazon. Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor’s fans were quite upset when the news came out that the movie will not be released in cinemas.
Varun Dhawan’s last movie Bhediya got a good response at the box office, even Jug Jug Jeeyo ran a decent business. Janhvi Kapoor put up a cryptic note on Instagram which made her fans feel as if she is not happy with the decision. The film Bawaal is directed by Nitesh Tiwari and fans were expecting it to be a good commercial film.
The Reason Why Bawaal Movie is Releasing on OTT
As per the reports of Bollywood Hungama, Sajid Nadiadwala got a great deal from Amazon. The OTT market is in a little slump these days because they are a lot of movies and series which are not working well. Due to this, producers are not getting good returns. Reportedly, Sajid Nadiadwala got Rs 110 Crore from Amazon. The source quoted that “As known by everyone, Bawaal is not your run-of-the-mill commercial film, and the offer from Amazon gave Sajid and his team the security of assured returns. Varun and Janhvi also agreed to this decision as the film does not have those commercial trappings .”
Varun Dhawan along with Nitesh Tiwari and Sajid Nadiadwala feel that bawaal has all the elements to appease a global audience. Bawaal will premiere in 200 countries. The main launch event will be held in Paris and this film is the first Indian film to have a premiere at the Eiffel Tower. The film will be released on July 21 and will give the audience a panoramic view of the city of lights. A lot of French delegates will be invited to attend the occasion.
