Dolly kitty Aur Wo Chamakte Sitare, starring Konkona Sen Sharma and Bhumi Pednekar, will have its premiere on an online platform due to the Corona outbreak. The two powerhouse performers play siblings in this Alankrita Shrivastava film, which deals with several social taboos and challenges them at large.
We hear that now; the makers of the movie are in discussion with some of the prominent OTT platforms to release Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare. “Negotiations are on at this point and they will settle for the best deal they get. Bhumi and Konkona’s film will definitely be releasing online but the team is currently just figuring out which digital giant they will sell it to. It all depends on the money each has to offer. Netflix and Amazon Prime are both in contention.” A source told Pinkvilla. That also means that this would be Bhumi’s second digital project, after her brilliant stint in Lust Stories.
Another trade source further has been quoted by the portal as saying, “The film is mounted on a very small budget, like Alankrita’s last film Lipstick Under My Burkha. This is again a very socially relevant film, which caters to a particular target audience, which is also similar to what the OTT giants cater to. So, it’s a good move on the makers’ part to sell it off. Theatres aren’t showing any signs of reopening in the next two months at least and if all was well, Balaji had initially planned to release Bhumi and Konkona’s movie around May itself.”
The film had earlier been shown to an applauding audience at Busan Film Festival and the Glasgow Film Festival. An official announcement on the same is expected to be made soon.
