Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani starrer Govinda Naam Mera is one of the highly anticipated movies of the year. Fans of Vicky are waiting for his next movie on the big screen after 2020’s lackluster Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship. Now, though, it looks like Vicky’s admirers will have to wait for his next theatrical release. Yes, if we are to believe the reports, Govinda Naam Mera, the director of Shashank Khaitan, will be heading for a direct OTT release.
According to the report in Bollywood Life, producer Karan Johar does not want to hold the film for a much longer period of time. The film was previously slated for a June release, but there is no official update on it. In fact, there isn’t even a teaser of the movie. The portal took input from their source and he informed them that Karan Johar can opt for an OTT release as he doesn’t want to release the movie in cinemas just for the sake of a viable theater window. According to him, the calendar is already full of major releases for the coming months. So Johar could go for a digital release.
