Nani faced backlash for releasing two of his movies on OTT platforms directly. No Telugu star skipped two movies the theatrical route back to back. He vowed to release his next film in theaters only.
Accordingly, the actor’s upcoming movie ‘Shyam Singha Roy’ (SSRR) is closing business deals. Streaming giant Netflix has bought the ‘SRR’ digital rights (non-direct release) for a fancy price. The makers will soon close the satellite deal. After that, the theatrical rights will be sold.
By giving non-direct OTT rights to Netflix, Nani has made it clear that his next film will only hit the theaters.
Directed by Rahul Sankrityan, ‘Shyam Singha Roy’ deals with two timelines of the story – a bygone era and the present time. Nani is a partner in the movie’s production.
Set in Kolkota, SSR has Sai Pallavi, Krithi Shetty and Madonna Sebastian as the female lead. Rahul Ravindran, Murali Sharma, and Abhinav Gomatam play important roles in the film.
Written by Satyadev Janga, the film is produced by Venkat Boyanapalli and has music by Mickey J Meyer.
