The makers of Radhe Shyam have time and again made it clear that they will go only for a theatrical release. However, despite RRR postponement, UV Creations have stated that the film will hit the screens only on January 14th.
The team of RRR has had to postpone their release date due to the rising Covid cases and 50% occupancy restrictions insignificant states. Shot on a whopping budget of over 350 crores, the film would find it impossible to recover its money back, especially in Andhra Pradesh.
On the other hand, Radhe Shyam has received multiple OTT offers but hasn’t zeroed in on any decision yet. Amidst these offers, reports are coming out that while Radhe Shyam will hit the screens as decided, it will also release on OTT towards January end, i.e., two weeks after theatrical release.
It seems a viable option in the ongoing circumstances as the makers will recover a significant amount if an early OTT release happens.
Radhe Shyam stars Prabhas, Pooja Hegde, Bhagyashree, Priyadarsi, and Murali Sharma. Radha Krishna Kumar is the director of the film. Justin Prabhakaran is the music director of the movie.
