Yesterday, an official announcement came out that senior hero Venkatesh’s upcoming film, Drushyam 2 will have a direct OTT release on Amazon Prime Video on November 25th. Being directed by Malayalam director Jeethu Joseph, the film is an official remake of Mohanlal’s Malayalam hit, Drishyam 2. Reputed producer Suresh Babu has bankrolled the movie.
Earlier, when the makers of Tuck Jagadish have announced the OTT release of the film, Telugu film distributors cried on the team and some of them attacked the film hero Nani. Then the theatres are not even fully opened. Now, after the Indian cinema is back to normal, Suresh Babu, a distributor himself announcing his film’s OTT release has surprised everyone.
Will the distributors respond to Suresh Babu’s Drushyam 2’s OTT release decision in the same way they did during Tuck Jagadish times? Remains to be seen.
