Here’s why makers of Vicky Kaushal starrer Sardar Udham Singh are not guilty to release it on an OTT platform

It’s the moment of joy for everyone as the theatres in Maharashtra will be reopened in the state from 22nd October. And it is a big news especially for the films which will be releasing this year. But amidst all of this Vicky Kaushal starrer Sardar Uddham Singh will have a OTT release and fans are curious about this move.

When the same question was asked to the director of the film, he stated that the film needs a audience from all sides of the globe. Sircar said, “Like we say there is a destiny for every film, so I think Sardar Udham’s destiny landed on Amazon Prime. When I shot the film, there was nothing of this situation, I hope whatever you have seen of the trailer I have shot the film for cinema. Unfortunately yes, the situation went like that. There is no guilt that it is now it’s releasing on Amazon Prime. Once I had decided and Ronnie had decided that this will go on the digital platform, I didn’t feel that there is a mistake that I am doing. I was quite happy, number one, I will tell you the reason that when Gulabo Sitabo happened there was a lot of talk that why I realise that film and I have given my clarification that the situation was that and we could not hold on to this film. Number two, is that I am really impatient when a film is done. I just want to quickly reach out to people. Since 1990 that the film was done in the old world and we were doing the post-production, I actually wanted to get this film out.”

Another thing, the reach that Gulabo had in terms of people I thought also this film which needs a huge global platform apart from our Indian territories so I thought that’s also a good reason for me to go head and yes the cinematic experience that you are talking about, we are going to miss it. But, this is not a compromise in the cinematic narrative that I have used. It is as cinematic as you will see in a theatre and it as cinematic as you will see on a small screen”.

The movie will be streaming on Amazon Prime from October 16.
