Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is all set to make her digital debut as the makers of her upcoming mystery thriller ‘Blind’ are mulling over the idea of releasing the movie on OTT. Producer Sujoy Ghosh is said to be in talks with three digital streaming companies.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja has not had any release in the past two years. It was known that she has joined hands with producer Sujoy Ghosh for a project named, ‘Blind which is the hindi remake of Korean movie with the same name.
As the battle against the coronavirus continues, reopening cinema halls still remains a big question. Hence the makers of Blind have also decided to jump onto the OTT bandwagon.
A source revealed, “Sujoy had thought of waiting it out for a theatrical release. He is in fact very happy with how the film has turned out. But given the third wave scare, and another shut down of theatres, he is being advised to not hold onto the movie anymore. He is now talking to three digital streaming companies and he will select the best deal.” (Bollywood Hungama)
A trade guy shares, “Blind will be Sonam’s debut on OTT. It is only a logical move to opt for the web because theirs is a small film and they will easily recover the money. Theatrical business is even more dicey at this point. So it’s a good call.”
Recently, the Prem Ratan Dhan Payo actress wrapped up work for the movie. She shot for the movie in Glasgow in January this year.
She will be playing the role of a blind police officer in the movie. The actress even got herself trained by a blind coach to get into the skin of the character for the film.
The movie also stars Vinay Pathak, Purab Kohli and Lilette Dubey in pivotal roles.
