We are excited and impatient about Gangubai Kathiawadi. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali film would have Alia Bhatt play the prostitute turned underworld do and audiences are waiting to see her in this never-seen-before avatar. The film would be releasing in theatres this one and Alia is close to wrapping up the shoot. Now, we have heard that the digital right of the film has been sold.
According to a report in Pinkvilla, an OTT platform has cracked a deal with the makers of Gangubai Kathiawadi and has acquired the digital rights of the film. They have paid a whopping Rs. 70 crores for that. A source said, “The post-release streaming rights of Gangubai have been sold to an OTT giant for a hefty sum in the vicinity of Rs 70 crore. The paperwork is currently underway. The star-cast, grandeur and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s goodwill have led the team of Gangubai towards striking this massive deal. His films have a loyal audience outside India too, and the streaming platform too has a base to cater to them.”
It had also been said that Bhansali was being offered over Rs. 100 crores for a direct digital release of the film from many OTT platforms, but he decided to go for a theatrical release instead. We wonder when will the film come out!
