The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc across the country. With theatres shut, many producers are taking the digital route to release their films that are ready. The trend started with Gulabo Sitabo in 2020 and now, the OTT is home to multiple films for the audience to watch at their convenience. Now, according to reports, Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez and Yami Gautam's Bhoot Police will also be taking the digital route.
A source close to the development told the portal, "There is so much uncertainty around the country due to the spike in Covid-19 cases and no one can assure as to when will things be back to normal. The cinema consumption habit has also changed for the audience significantly and only event films will get the cash registers ringing to start with. Hence, Ramesh Ji decided to take a direct to digital route with his horror comedy."
The source further revealed that Bhoot Police might release on Disney+ Hotstar. "Disney+Hotstar is on an acquisition spree again, speaking to multiple producers. If all goes as planned, they will announce a slate of Hindi releases for their platform, in the same manner as they did in 2020," the source added.
Bhoot Police is directed by Pavan Kirpalani. It is presented by Tips Industries Ltd in association with 12th Street Entertainment. The film is produced by Ramesh Taurani, Akshai Puri and co-produced by Jaya Taurani.
