Ranbir plays a superhuman named Shiva.
While films like Gangubai Kathiawadi, The Kashmir Files, and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 made good profits at the box office, many films fell flat in cinemas.
The failure of Bollywood films in cinemas, starting with Bachchhan Paandey to Shamshera and the most recent, Laal Singh Chaddha has created a panic mood around them.
On the other hand, other films, including Gehraiyaan, Badhaai Do, A Thursday, Jalsa, Good Luck Jerry, and the most recent Darlings, chose a direct OTT release and did fairly well in terms of business.
In the approaching months of September and October, blockbuster films like Brahmastra, Vikram Vedha, Ram Setu, and Thank God will be released in cinemas.
These films will be followed by Drishyam 2, Bhediya, Cirkus, Bhaijaan, Adipurush, and Pathaan in the months ahead.
Recent reports indicate that several additional films that were supposed to hit cinemas this year are now choosing OTT releases.
Reportedly, films like Govinda Naam Mera, Bloody Daddy, Mission Majnu, Freddy, Laxman Utekar’s next with Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan, Action Hero, and Doctor G might opt for a direct-to-digital premiere if they get the right price.
Here’s a list of the most anticipated Indian films of September 2022, some of which are expected to release exclusively on OTT platforms such as Netflix and Disney+ Hotstar.
