Vivek Agnihotri, a filmmaker who is known for speaking up when something is on his mind, has brought up concern over Shahid Kapoor’s Bloody Daddy.

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who is known for speaking out on important issues, has expressed concern about the availability of the free streaming of the Shahid Kapoor film “Bloody Daddy.”

The creator of “The Kashmir Files” described it as “sad news” and claimed that Bollywood is rejoicing in its own downfall.

A news article concerning the digital streaming of Ali Abbas Zafar’s film “Bloody Daddy” was shared by Vivek Agnihotri on Twitter.

He wrote: “Why would anyone show a 200 cr film for free? What’s this insane business model? The sad news is that Bollywood is celebrating its own destruction.”

A social media user replied: “This is Jio’s business model. They’ll give everything free for a few/several months to increase the customer base. Later they’ll start charging a minimal fee to retain the customers. Soon other OTT platforms too will have no option but to charge less to customers and generate revenue thru ads instead. OTT, supposed to be an additional free platform, will too turn into TV.”

Questioning that, Vivek Agnihotri said: “So, in a way, this Rs 200 crore is their advertising cost?” Many tweeted in agreement.

In addition to Shahid Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, Diana Penty, Ronit Roy, and Rajeev Khandelwal, “Bloody Daddy” also stars.

The movie is a translation of the French film “Sleepless Night.” Kamal Haasan played the lead role in a 2015 Tamil remake.
