Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex VIP
Hotstar in their big announcement said that it would release the following movies on their platform:
- Laxmmi Bomb
- Bhuj: The Pride of India
- Sadak 2
- The Big Bull
- Khuda Haafiz
- Dil Bechara
The above-mentioned movies shall release on Hotstar Multiplex. Hotstar Multiplex is nothing but another menu button that will feature these 7 releases. There is no need to subscribe to the Multiplex account in Hotstar. Instead of releasing the movies in big screen multiplexes, it shall now release in Disney+ Hotstar new Multiplex tab. Multiplex is just another term given for new releases. All movies from the above except Dil Bechara shall require a VIP account in Hotstar. Dil Bechara will stream on Hotstar for free.
The above 7 movies were in pipeline to release on big screens. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the movies had to be postponed for an indefinite period. It was of no use in just completing the movie and not releasing them anywhere. The work in these movies had long been completed and it was inevitable to release somewhere in the OTT platform.
Release date for Laxmmi Bomb, Bhuj, Sadak 2, Lootcase, The Big Bull, Khuda Haafiz, and Dil Bechara
The release date for Dil Bechara is fixed on 24th July. The other 6 movies, the release dates have not been fixed. Close sources have confirmed that these 6 movies shall release over the stretch of 2 months in August and September. It should also be seen that none of these 6 movies will release in the month of July.
