Gulabo Sitabo's release on Amazon Prime has paved the way for many more movies releasing on OTT platforms.

Joginder Tuteja lists the movies coming up for release.

 

Laxmmi Bomb, Disney+ Hotstar

There is buzz that Akshay Kumar's Laxmmi Bomb will arrive on OTT soon though an official statement is yet to arrive.

 

Shakuntala Devi, Amazon Prime Video

Close on the heels of Gulabo Sitabo, Producer Vikram Malhotra announced the release of Shakuntala Devi on Amazon Prime.

The film is ready for release and with the kind of costs involved in the making of this Vidya Balan starrer, it is a win-win situation for everyone involved.

 

Dil Bechara, Disney+ Hotstar

Stuck in the cans for some time now, Dil Bechara was headed for an OTT release even before the lockdown was announced.

With Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic death, there is renewed interest in this love story.

 

Bulbbul, Netflix

Bulbbul was made for Netflix.

Anushka Sharma and her brother Karunesh Sharma are turning out to be big players on the OTT front, as evidenced by her previous production, the critically applauded Paatal Lok.

The Sharmas step into the horror space once again after Pari with this film starring Tripti Dimri, Rahul Bose, Avinash Tiwary, Paoli Dam and Parambrata Chattopadhyay.

 

Gunjan Saxena - The Kargil Girl, Netflix

After Dhadak, Karan Johar launched another film with Janhvi Kapoor, Gunjan Saxena - The Kargil Girl.

Just before the lockdown was announced, Johar's Dharma Productions had announced a release date.

Three months later, realising that a theatrical release will take longer, the film heads to Netflix.

 

Sadak 2, Disney+ Hotstar

Though an official announcement is awaited, Mahesh Bhatt's comeback film Sadak 2 will likely skip a theatrical release.

A biggie with Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapoor along with the original Sadak pair of Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt.

A part of the film's shoot is unfinished and Mahesh and brother Mukesh Bhatt are getting ready to complete it.

 

Virgin Bhanupriya, ZEE5

A quickie announced not too long ago, Virgin Bhanupriya wrapped up in a jiffy.

Starring Urvashi Rautela, this one is a light-hearted film with a bit of naughtiness thrown in.

 

Bhosle, Sony LIV

Bhosle tells the story of a retired cop, played by Manoj Bajpayee.

The actor, who is also one of the producers, has already won awards for his performance on the festival circuit.

 

Yaara, ZEE5

Though the film was made five years ago, it couldn't manage a theatrical release.

The Vidyut Jammwal-Amit Sadh-Shruti Haasan starrer is a period film directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia.

 

Lootcase, Disney+ Hotstar

The promo of Lootcase was released last year, and it had seemed that the Kunal Kemmu,-Rasika Duggal-Vijay Raaz-Ranvir Shorey starrer would see a theatrical release.

But the lockdown aborted that plan and the film seems headed for an OTT release.
