It
is
not
a
hidden
fact
that
the
advent
of
the
pandemic
last
year
had
severely
affected
the
theatres
and
the
majority
of
the
movies
saw
their
releases
on
the
OTT
streaming
platforms.
However,
many
filmmakers
are
now
choosing
to
release
their
movies
in
the
theatres
with
the
pandemic
scenario
normalizing.
However,
that
does
not
seem
to
be
the
case
for
Farhan
Akhtar’s
upcoming
film

Toofan

which
will
be
releasing
on
Amazon
Prime,
skipping
a
theatrical
release.

Farhan-Akhtar-Toofan

A
source
close
to
the
film
revealed
to
Bollywood
Hungama
about
the
same.
It
revealed
that

Toofan

was
slated
to
release
in
September
last
year.
However,
the
release
of
the
movie
was
stalled
due
to
the
pandemic
situation.
The
source
added
that
it
is
indeed
a
surprise
that
filmmaker
Rakeysh
Omprakash
Mehra
has
opted
to
release
the
film
on
an
OTT
platform
rather
than
in
the
theatres.
The
source
said
that
it
is
confirmed
that
the
film
will
be
released
directly
on
Amazon
Prime
Video.

The
source
revealed
that
releasing
the
film
in
the
theatres
right
now
may
not
be
much
favourable
for
the
business.
The
source
went
on
to
add
the
reason
behind
this
decision
of
the
makers.
It
revealed
that
even
though
the
theatres
are
opening
up
now,
it
will
a
little
time
for
their
business
to
return
to
normal.
The
source
adds
that
releasing
a
film
right
now
in
the
theatres
may
be
detrimental
to
the
business.
However,
releasing

Toofan

instead
in
the
OTT
platform
will
at
least
ensure
that
the
filmmaker
covers
a
certain
sum
of
his
initial
expense.
The
source
said
that
this
is
one
of
the
real
reasons
that
some
of
the
filmmakers
are
opting
to
release
their
films
on
the
OTT
platforms
instead
of
the
theatres.
