Uunchai producers, Rajshri Productions, have now stated that there are no immediate plans for a digital release of the film, which is still doing well at the box office. Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Sarika, Neena Gupta, Danny Denzongpa, Boma Irani, and Parineeti Chopra played the key characters in the Sooraj Barjatya-directed movie.
In a joint statement released on Tuesday, Rajshri Productions, Mahaveer Jain Films, and Boundless Media congratulated the audience and cautioned them against downloading unauthorised copies of Uunchai.
“A special shoutout to every member of the audience who went to the theatre with family and loved ones and contributed to making Uunchai an exclusive big screen experience. As Uunchai continues to run in theatres in its 4th week, we as a unit stand proud and humbled. It is the desire of our hearts to see Uunchai have a strong and long run at the theatres and therefore, Uunchai will not have an online release very soon,” the statement said.
It added, “We gave Uunchai, seven years of passion, hard work and above all love! From its conception to its release, every day, we have kept you, our audience in mind and have crafted an experience that we would want you to cherish and remember! The experience of watching a film on the big screen is simply magical! Watching a pirated version of the film on your electronic devices or delaying your watch, waiting for the film to release online, would mean robbing yourself of this magical experience.”
All of the main actors, the director of photography, editor, composer of the music, production designer, and marketing and distribution managers all signed the statement. It was uploaded on Rajshri Productions’ official Instagram account, and Parineeti also put it on her timeline.
