"It will give an all-access view"
Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal have reportedly sold their wedding telecast rights to Amazon Prime Video for Rs. 80 Crore (£8 million).
The reported wedding has received a lot of attention. This included rumours that they were considering selling their wedding footage to a streaming platform.
Now, it is believed that the couple has struck a lucrative deal with Amazon Prime Video.
The streaming giant will reportedly showcase the four-day event that is being held in Rajasthan.
According to Mid-Day, the event will be presented as a feature-length film and premiere in early 2022.
Reports have suggested that this is the reason why the couple have made their guests sign non-disclosure agreements so that nothing is leaked.
A source said: “The reason behind the hush and even requesting their guests to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) was that they sold their wedding telecast rights to Amazon Prime as they could maintain the confidentiality.”
The source went on to claim that Amazon has been looking to produce content on Bollywood weddings.
The source elaborated: “The OTT platform has been looking at starting a grand wedding series focusing on big Bollywood nuptials.
“Vicky and Katrina’s wedding will be designed as an expansive feature, tracing their love story with bytes from the two stars, their friends and family, and a glimpse of the roka that happened last month.
“It will give an all-access view to the four-day celebration – from the sangeet to the reception.
“The platform is said to be taking care of the expenses of the sangeet and mehndi events.
“Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, and other artists performing at the sangeet, are apparently sponsored by the OTT channel.
“A team of videographers has been sent by them to film the band-baaja-baaraat.”
Amazon Prime Video, Katrina and Vicky have not confirmed the news so it will be interesting to see what happens going forwards.
The reported wedding has received a lot of attention for being secretive, prompting a lot of memes from social media users.
In addition to guests being told to sign NDAs, they are also banned from using their mobile phones and from posting anything about the wedding on social media.
Katrina and Vicky reportedly welcomed guests with a special note. The note read:
“We request you to please leave your mobile phones in your respective rooms and refrain from posting pictures or using social media for any of the ceremonies and events.”
Among the 120 guests include Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi, director Kabir Khan, Mini Mathur and others.
