Producer Ronnie Screwvala seems open heatedly adopting the new reality of the entertainment industry - that of releasing small films with a new cast or sweet little rom-com and dramas straightly on OTT platforms. His Vicky Kaushal and Angira Dhar starrer Love Per Square Foot exclusively premiered on Netflix last year and is rumoured to be releasing his next comedy-drama, Bhangra Pa Le that stars Vicky's brother Sunny Kaushal and Rukshar Dhillon, again directly on a digital platform.
While Ronnie might be rethinking about giving Bhangra Pa Le a digital release, we heard it's not the only project that the producer is planning for digital showcasing. Peepingmoon.com has exclusively learned that Ronnie's Yaar Jigri that has Vikrant Massey and Sunny Singh playing the buddies is also being prepped for the OTT release. According to industry sources, the film that marks the directorial debut of Trapped co-writer Amit Joshi has not shaped up the way makers had expected. Ronnie is apparently not happy with the outcome and thus is avoiding the theatrical release the film was meant for. They are said to be in talks to release the film on Zee5 early next year.
Yaar Jigri is a bromance story that talks about friendship set against the backdrop of four different locations. The film went on floors mid-August and has already been shot across the beautiful locales of Delhi, Nainital, Ranikhet and Corbett. The story of two best friends- a shy and reserved Buddy and a flirtatious and carefree Ady played by Vikrant and Sunny respectively- Yaar Jigri is expected to take the audience on a heartwarming and thrilling ride where one ends up rooting for both the friends as they really come through for each other despite their imperfections and differences. Tanishk Bagchi and Rochak Kohli have composed the music for this slice-of-life buddy film filled with a series of unpredictable events.
