Last couple outings of Salman Khan failed to live up to the expectations of the audience and had an average business at the box office.

Meanwhile, OTT platforms witnessed a boom in their business and approached many filmmakers with lucrative offers to release their ongoing projects directly on digital platforms. Smaller as well as big projects including Akshay Kumar starrer Laxmmi Bomb are advancing towards OTT release and reports suggest Salman Khan starrer is also seeking a digital release.
Earlier, reports started doing rounds over the internet that the makers of Salman Khan starrer Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai are ready for the OTT release if they are offered a whopping INR 250 crore.
