Natural Star Nani has turned a full-time villain in the movie V in which Sudheer Babu has played a lead role. Aditi Rao Hydari, Nivetha Thomas are the female leads in the project which was directed by Mohan Krishna Indraganti. With perfect planning the director has completed all the formalities and made the movie ready for release on March 25th.
However lockdown because of coronavirus made sure that V has been postponed indefinitely. With many movies halted for releases, OTT platforms tried to take advantage by offering huge amounts to producers. In the process many small movies are releasing their movies on OTT platforms. They have also approached Dil Raju to release V in their OTT platforms by offering huge amounts.
Dil Raju has quoted Rs. 35 Crores to release V in their platforms which is not an advantageous business model for the OTT platforms. Though they have send their consent as yes, getting ready to pay what Dil Raju demanded, eventually the ace producer said no.
Dil Raju before becoming a producer, he is an ace distributor and exhibitor. He still distributes top films in Nizam and Vizag areas. He owns many theaters in these two regions. So he doesn’t want to disturb the business model. So he said firm no to OTT release.
