According to the latest reports of Bollywood Life given the uncertainly of theoretical business in COVID-19 times and so many titles taking the OTT route, there’s been increased chatter whether Ajay Devgn, Amitabh Bachchan, Rakul Preet Singh starrer Runway 34 will also release direct online.
Adding more details, Bollywood Life got in touch for an exclusive chat with Akshaye Rathi to get some clarity on Runway 34 and whether it will release straight on an OTT platform or not. According to the reports, Akshaye, the film exhibitor, and distributor added that the OTT release is not likely to happen because Ajay himself is an exhibitor and understands the need for an hour.
Also, it will send out a very wrong signal as the film titled Heropanti 2 is slated on the same day as Runway 2 and it will send out a very wrong signal if Runway 2 which is headlined by two superstars like Ajay and Big B, would be seen bowing out of the race. So in that case, Akshaye has his fingers crossed that both big films, featuring big stars arrive on big screens to light up the extended EID weekend this year.
Besides Ajay, Rakul Preet Singh, and Big B, the film titled Runway 34 also marks the feature film debut of Carry Minati, the noted You Tuber.
