Currently India is in third phase of lock down and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced that there will be fourth phase as well. However there are thoughts that lock down might be lifted in phases from this month end. However Telangana Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav has today revealed that there are no plans to open theaters soon. It will take 3 – 4 months time atleast he said. Already producers have lost a lot of money with their films lying in cans.
With theaters not getting opened any time soon, there will be alternate plans from producers. Already few producers all over India have come forward to release directly through OTT platforms. Even we have one Telugu film which released directly through OTT that is Amrutha Ramam. However no big film has released directly and Nishabdam is going to change that.
This Anushka starrer was originally planned for April 2nd release in multiple languages. With lock down effect the release got postponed indefinitely. According to the latest update makers of Nishabdam has sold the movie to Amazon Prime for a whopping Rs 26 Crores. Release date will be announced very shortly. So Nishabdam will be the first big ticket in Tollywood. More to follow.
