Kartik Aaryan's Dhamaka on Netflix
New Delhi : Actor Kartik Aaryan's upcoming movie Dhamaka will have a Direct-To-OTT release, and the movie will be premiered on Netflix, said a report.
According to a media report by Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the development told them, "Ronnie Screwvala and Ram Madhvani have started conversations with digital giant, Netflix, for a direct to digital premiere and the deal is expected to be locked within 7 to 10 days. The talks began sometime last week, and so far, Ronnie, Ram, and Netflix are on the same page taking the financials as also the release plan, so it’s unlikely for the deal to fall through. Paperwork will be done soon."
It is an interesting decision to take as Kartik Aaryan is a bankable actor and with theatres already open and condition improving it is surprising to see an OTT release.
Dhamaka is based on a Korean movie 'The Terror Live' and it is currently under the post-production stage. The shooting for the movie was completed in just 15 days at a Mumbai hotel.
Kartik plays the role of a journalist who covers the live broadcast of a terror attack in Mumbai. Directed by Ram Madhvani, the film is produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Amita Madhvani and backed by RSVP Movies and RM Films.
