The new corona outbreak has put the entire movie industry on a standstill. There is uncertainty as to whether we will ever again be able to view films in theatres. Most filmmakers are slowly opting for the drift from the big screen release to OTT platforms.
Tollywood star Nani, who is starring in a film titled V, is waiting for its release. Indraganti Mohan Krishna is directing the project. The film was initially to be released on March 25, on the Telugu New Year Day. However, Covid-19 decided to swirl things up a bit and lockdown happened. Nani was done with its shooting in February and for the first time, he will be playing a negative role. The film also happens to be his 25th one, making it more special. Sadly, his 25th movie will be released not in the theatres but on Amazon Prime on September 5.
V producer, Sri Venkateswara Creations, tweeted regarding the movie’s release on Thursday, “The hunt is on! #VOnPrime September 5, on @PrimeVideoIN @NameisNani @isudheerbabu @i_nivethathomas @aditiraohydari @mokris_1772 #DilRaju #Shirish #HarshithReddy @ItsAmitTrivedi @MusicThaman @pgvinda #MarthandKVenkatesh”.
Actor Nani also wrote an emotional note dedicated to all his fans. He announced his 25th movie on the OTT platform on Amazon Prime. He further prayed for normalcy and hopes his next film Tuck Jagadish will hit the theatres.
The makers of the movie released a small yet exciting sneak peek in which Nani can be seen speaking about the new normal in the industry, that is, the OTT platform. Watching films at home and online releases must now be normalised.
In V, Aditi Rao Hydari and Nivetha Thomas will be portraying the two female leads. Sudheer Babu plays a police officer and Nivetha will be paired opposite him. Amit Trivedi is composing music and cinematography is done by PG Vinda. Dil Raju produces the film from Sri Venkateswara Creations.
Tuck Jagadish, Nani’s next project, will roll into action after lockdown. A direction of Shiva Nirvana, the project was announced with a pooja earlier his year. Ritu Varma will be playing the movie’s female lead character and Jagapathi Babu will portray the main character. S Thaman is composing the music for the film and Prasad Murella is the cameraman.
