This is good news for the fans of Akshay Kumar. The path of the release of his film Bell Bottom seems to be clearing the way. This film was waiting for release for a long time.
It was previously believed that Bell Bottom’s producer Jackie Bhagnani wanted to release it in theaters, but it was better to release it on OTT rather than hang it in front of Corona’s havoc.
Will be released here
According to the news of Bollywood ruckus, the deal to release it on Hotstar has almost been confirmed. Just now waiting for the announcement of its release date.
It is being told that there were talks about its release on Amazon Prime for a few months, but Hotstar offered more money from there, after which it has come in his bag.

How much was the deal?
Currently, the makers have not disclosed how much this deal was done. Just told that the money is good. Anyway, OTT platforms do not disclose the money deal made here. Nor does it tell how much they buy and how much they earn from it.
In such a situation, only the deals of money can be estimated. Actors also do not want the deal of their films to be known because the jumla with so many things suits them more.
The news came during Lakshmi also
Akshay’s previous film was also released on Hotstar. About which it was even reported that this film has been sold for 125 crores but later this news proved to be a rumor. The exact deal could not be disclosed till date.
OTT is not a profitable deal
Let me tell you that the release of big superstars movies on OTT platforms is considered a loss deal because OTT platforms make a deal by paying a little over budget. In such a situation, the producer does not get the money he wants. The film is sold there for release only because of its compulsion because the actual revenue is earned only after release in theaters.
Akshay Kumar’s big budget film Suryavanshi has been waiting for release for more than a year, this film is a budget film of more than 100 crores and it is not getting any special deal on OTT.
The makers hope that the film can earn around 200-250 crores in theaters. Whereas OTT can give a deal of 110-115 crores for its release even after putting a lot of emphasis. In such a situation, the profit plan of the makers will be defeated.
