Samrat Prithviraj OTT Release Date: Akshay Kumar’s ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ is proving to be a flop at the box office. Alam is that theater owners have to cancel many shows because people are not coming to see this film. With some difficulty, this film has come close to earning 65 crores. For Emperor Prithviraj, made at a cost of more than 250 crores, this earning is like cumin in the mouth of a camel.
Yash Raj Films has decided that this film will now be dropped on OTT only after 4 weeks of its theatrical release.
According to the report of Bollywood Hungama, this ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ will be streamed on Amazon Prime only after 4 weeks. According to reports, Yash Raj Films has placed an open-ended contract for its entire 2022 slate, with prices for 4 weeks and 8 weeks. The logic behind this is that if a film does well in the cinema, then its OTT release date will be kept after 8 weeks.
Let us tell you that this year has not been very good for Akshay Kumar, this is the third consecutive film of Khiladi Kumar which has failed at the box office. ‘Bell Bottom’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’ and now ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ also did not provide any relief. It is reported that everything has already been decided between Yash Raj Films and Amazon Prime regarding ‘Samrat Prithviraj’. Although the OTT release date of this film has not been revealed yet, but if the 4-week deal is confirmed, then it can be released this month or by July.
The only two films in the entire line up, for which Yash Raj Films has opted for a 8 week digital window, are Pathaan and Tiger 3. “These are two of the biggest action spectacles of Bollywood and YRF is sure that they warrant the longest possible run at theatres. Hence, the contract is signed and sealed for a 8 week OTT window,” the source concluded, adding further that the prices fetched by these 2 films for 8 week window is higher than the prices fetched by their line up for a 4 week premiere.
The upcoming YRF releases of 2022 include Shamshera, Maharaja and Vicky Kaushal’s next with Vijay Krishna Acharya.
