OTT may be the medium of choice for Atrangi Re, as it looks right now: Akshay Kumar on the release of his film co-starring Sara Ali Khan-Dhanush


One of Bollywood's biggest superstars, Akshay Kumar, has an interesting lineup of projects in 2021-22. While he is currently shooting for Ranjit M Tewari's Cinderella in London, he gave fans multiple surprises by announcing the release dates of his big-budget films Sooryavanshi, Prithviraj, Bachchan Pandey, Raksha Bandhan and Ram Setu. But one film was missing from the list. That was Aanand L Rai's Atrangi Re. Co-starring Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush, the film is ready to release. 

Akshay, in an interview with a leading daily, talked about not announcing the theatrical release date of Atrangi Re. He indicated that the romantic drama might be selected for an OTT premiere. He told the daily that the final decision is yet to be taken. "To be honest, I haven’t yet included Atrangi Re in the list because we are still mulling over whether it should be a theatrical film or an OTT release. And OTT may simply be the medium of choice for Atrangi Re, as it looks right now," Akshay told.

Akshay further added that Atrangi Re has a fantastic story and it is important that the film gets the right platform. "Atrangi Re has a fantastic, never-heard-before subject and storyline. For me and Anand Rai, it is critical that the most suited platform is chosen for the film," Akshay shared. 

In November last year, Akshay opted for an OTT release for his horror-comedy Laxmii. The actor said in the interview, "I am as much for OTT as for theatres. What’s best for the film should decide the medium of release."
