Thrilled that we will be able to entertain you in these unprecedented times. #WorldPremiereOnPrime #ShakuntalaDeviOnPrime (sic).”

Shakuntala Devi is a biopic of the renowned mathematical wizard Shakuntala Devi who was also known as the ‘Human Computer’ for her innate ability to make incredibly complex calculations within seconds. The biopic also stars Sanya Malhotra, Amit Sadh and Jisshu Sengupta in key characters. Helmed by Anu Menon, the movie was earlier scheduled to release on the 8th of May, but in wake of the ongoing viral pandemic, the producers decided to premiere it on the OTT platform.

While filmmakers with small budgeted projects are seeking digital releases, big banner movies are also developing an inclination towards the OTT platforms. Following the trend, even Salman Khan starrer cop-drama, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, is planning an OTT platform premiere and the makers are in talks with video streaming giant Netflix for a release.
