Laxmmi Bomb, Coolie No 1 Get Set For OTT Release But Sajid Nadiadwala, Yash Raj Films Will Stay Far Away From Streaming Giants - EXCLUSIVE
While several filmmakers are seriously looking at crossing over to the OTT platform, two major production houses won’t hear of it, let alone seriously consider the crossing over to the compact format. These producers who won’t say yes to OTT are Sajid Nadiadwala and Aditya Chopra. While no official confirmation on this issue is obtainable from either, sources close to both confirm that these producers won’t give in.

“Sajid Nadiawala feels he makes films for the big screen. His last production Baaghi 3 which reached the big screen just before movie theatres downed their shutters was a big success in spite of the virus threat. Sajid feels that to be a sign of how devoted his audience is to the large-screen experience,” says a friend of the hotshot producer. The source adds that none of  Nadiadwala’s films would go to the  digital platform.
