With the Coronavirus pandemic hovering over us and in no plan of easing, dreams of releasing films in the theatre are bleak. With films like Laxmmi Bomb and Sadak 2 premiering online very soon, a lot of other filmmakers are also looking to release their upcoming films online. Sanjay Dutt starrer, Torbaaz, may be one such film.
A report on Mid-Day states that OTT platform, Netfix, has signed on the film for an October release. If it does release online, Torbaaz will be Sanjay’s third OTT release during the pandemic after Sadak 2 and Bhuj: The Pride Of India. The film also stars Nargis Fakhri.
The OTT giant will announce its new slate this week. Torbaaz, which revolves around child suicide bombers in Afghanistan, is one of the many films that it has acquired in the past month. Though the release date of each project has yet to be determined, the Girish Malik directed venture is pacing towards completion.
The report informs that the filming had begun in December 2017 in Kyrgyzstan, and wrapped up in February 2019 after on and off shoot schedules. It also adds that when the producer was contacted, he did confirm that they were in talks with OTT giants for the film.
Here’s hoping we get to see Sanjay Dutt on screen, albeit on our digital screens, very soon!
