The release of young actress Janhvi Kapoor’s upcoming film ‘Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl’ has been arranged by its makers very thoughtfully. Currently, OTT has a long queue of films, TV and web series. But, there is no Hindi film or web series to be released with Gunjan Saxena’s biopic.
Of course, this contest is not at the box office because the film is being released on OTT. But, the audience’s likes and dislikes are decided on a single day. There is no Hindi project in this film, but Hollywood superstar Vin Diesel’s superhero film ‘Bloodshot’ will definitely make its presence felt.
The film was released in theaters in the US on March 13, but a few days later the film was withdrawn from theaters as lockdown was implemented to prevent the spread of the corona virus. And soon the makers announced to release it digitally. After its theatrical release, the film received mixed reviews from critics, but the film became one of the most watched films on OTT in lockdown.
On May 1, the film is released in three Texas-based theaters in San Antonio. After this, the film has been released in China on July 24 but in India it got a place on OTT. Talk if the biopic of Gunjan Saxena, the first female pilot to participate in the Kargil war, was decided to release the film in theaters on 13 March.
The release of Corona virus in the country led to its release on 24 April. However, the release of the film was postponed indefinitely if the theaters remained closed continuously. Theaters are still closed in the country, so this film, produced by Karan Johar, is now being released on OTT on Wednesday, August 12. Both these films are being considered tough on OTT. Although ‘Bloodshot’ has been released in theaters before, but the film has received much better response on OTT. On the other hand, ‘Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl’ is a recent film.
