Nishabdham is one of the highly anticipated films awaiting a release by fans of Anushka Shetty, Madhavan and movie buffs in general. The movie is touted to be a thriller and the trailer which released in March worked wonders in creating a strong hype for the movie. The movie was supposed to release in April and unfortunately could not release as the lockdown was already running which meant movie theaters were closed. Even now, theaters across the country continue to be closed on government orders and there is no clarity on when they would reopen.
In light of this development a lot of movies which were supposed to be released in April and May have been stalled. Therefore, producers have begun to consider releasing the movies directly on OTT streaming platforms due to this situation. The same rumour has been running regarding Nishabdham as well that producers are considering an OTT release. However, one of the producers of Nishabdham Kona Venkat offered his clarification regarding these rumours. In a post on Twitter he said that a theatrical release for Nishabdham is the first priority and if that is not possible due to unfavourable situations then the producers would consider an OTT release. Earlier, in an exclusive interview with us, director Hemanth Madhukar said that they received offers from various OTT platforms to release the movie on OTT.
Lot of speculations r being made on the release of our film NISHABDHAM in the media.We would like to clarify that “Theatrical release is our top PRIORITY.If the situation isn’t favourable for a long time then our alternate would be to release on OTT platform”. Hope for the best👍
