Upcoming Bollywood films Ludo, Jhund and Indoo Ki Jawaani are all set to bypass the traditional theatrical release to directly release on the OTT platform due to coronavirus pandemic. These three films are being produced by T-series. Owner Bhushan Kumar has collaborated with Netflix for the release of the Anurag Basu directorial and Abhishek Bachchan starrer film Ludo, Nagraj Manjule’s Amitabh Bachchan starrer film Jhund and Abir Sengupta’s Kiara Advani starrer film Indoo Ki Jawaani.
In the coming days, it is possible that two more films of the T-series, which will include Sanjay Gupta’s John Ibrahim and Emraan Hashmi film ‘Mumbai Saga’ and Parineeti Chopra‘s Sania Nehwal biopic, get an OTT release. Both these films are in production level currently.
