Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Ghoomketu will be releasing on Zee5 on Eid this year. The film has been in the pipeline from the past many years, and now, it will be finally getting a digital release. Well, not just Ghoomketu, but one more film of Nawaz might release on an OTT platform. We are talking about Bole Chudiyan which also stars Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead role.
Recently, while talking to Mid-day, the co-producer of the film, Rajesh Bhatia confirmed that they are planning to release the film digitally. He said, “Cinema is a great medium, but, it doesn’t seem like theatres will start functioning within the next six months. We are hence open to the idea of an OTT release. If the film beams to 200 countries, we think that’s a great deal for the right price.”
