Recently producer Shabbir Boxwala was in conversation with a news daily. Shabbir is co-producing Sidharth Malhotra starrer Shershaah. The news referred that the war drama would release on the OTT platform.
According to the reports the producer was quoted as saying that in the present situations, the makers have no other option but to chose OTT for the release of the film. Even though no other tabloid covered the news it went viral and fans started speculating on it. This pace of news got mixed reactions from the netizens.
However, now Bollywood Hungama has a different story to tell. The tabloid quoted Shabbir as saying, “No decision has been made in this regard and I have clearly said that in the interview as well. The film is not even ready. Once it’s complete, Dharma Productions will take a decision on its release.”
When he was asked about the release date of the film he said, “Right now, it’s a question mark,” looking at the uncertain scenario.
Shershaah is directed by Vishnu Vardhan and also stars Kiara Advani. Co-produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, it is a biopic of Param Vir Chakra awardee and army captain Vikram Batra, who laid down his life in the 1999 Kargil War.
