Priyadarshan’s Hungama 2 Starring Shilpa Shetty And Paresh Rawal Sold To Disney+ Hotstar At A Mere 30 Crores - EXCLUSIVE
Gone are the  days when OTT platforms fell over one  another in pursuit  of big-budgeted Bollywood big-screen projects. Disney+ Hotstar apparently cut a very  hard deal with producer Ratan Jain before purchasing his new production a riotous comedy, Hungama 2 .

An informed source reveals, “They (the Hungama  producer Ratan Jain)  actually asked for a lot more, considering director Priyadarshan’s first Hungama was a hit. But that was 18 years ago. Today’s generation has moved on. Also, the film has no face value (big stars). Not that stars sell films on the OTT, the content does.” ALSO READ: Hungama 2 Actress Pranitha Subhash On Co-Star Shilpa Shetty Kundra: ‘You’d Wonder In The Film Who’s Younger’-EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Lately the OTT platforms have begun to exercise extreme caution about purchasing feature films.  ALSO READ: Hungama 2 Actress Pranitha Subhash: ‘I Tell Meezaan That He Should Debut In The South Now’- EXCLUSIVE

Sayssthe same source, “Disney-Hotstar paid a massive 90 crore rupees for David Dhawan’s Coolie No 1 and it was a disaster. They’ve paid much less for Hungama 2. The star cast has no A-listers.”

Apparently A-listers gracing the  digital space  is no more a reason to rejoice. The digital world has given  opportunities for a  huge  bank of  untapped talent to emerge,  from Harshvardhan Rane and  Pulkit Samrat in Taish to Jaideep Ahlawat  and Abhishek Bannerjee  in  Pataal Lok to  Pratik Gandhi in Hansal Mehta’s Scam  1992 to  Surya Sharma  in Undekhi .
