The coronavirus epidemic has caused a stir in the country right now. Hospitals suffer from a lack of beds, medicines and oxygen. People are being killed for lack of treatment. These situations have also affected the entertainment industry. The film’s theatrical releases were postponed.
Although the premiere of movies and web series on digital platforms continues, Farhan Akhtar has decided not to release his film Storm on the OTT platform until the situation normalizes, so all the attention is focused on the biggest problem in the country. Be concentrated.
Farhan’s company, Excel Entertainment, has issued a statement on the matter, saying: Things are painful in India, and Excel Entertainment and ROMP Pictures stand with all the people who have been affected by this pandemic.
Given the seriousness of the situation, our focus is entirely on helping our employees, their families, and others. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the launch of the storm until the situation returns to normal. Updates regarding the new release date will be posted soon.
Follow the necessary rules to fight Kovid. Whenever your number arrives, record the vaccine by registering. On behalf of the entire storm team, we ask that you stay home, stay safe, and stay organized.
In a situation where most producers are finding a way to OTT due to their films not being released in theaters, Farhan’s announcement came as a surprise as the film was already hitting the OTT platform. When asked about this, a member of Farhan’s team said that the storm will only come on Amazon Prime Video, but that it is unethical to promote the film under the circumstances, so its release has been postponed.
Let me tell you that the storm directed by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra was scheduled to air on Amazon Prime Video on May 21. Farhan plays a street boxer in the movie. The film stars Mrinal Thakur and Paresh Rawal in key roles.
Major movies, including the May Storm, will be released on OTT platforms, including Salman Khan’s Radhe movie – Your Most Wanted Bhai. The film will be available on pay per view at Zyplex with theaters (where open).
