'Kotigobba 3 has the potential to make 100 crores if released in theatres'

...says producer Surappa Babu, who rubbishes rumours of plans to release the film on an OTT platform 


Published: 17th May 2021

If all had gone according to plan, Kotigobba 3 would have hit theatres on April 29. However, the Sudeep-starrer has been pushed indefinitely due to the raging pandemic. The makers had even planned a pre-release event, which too stands postponed. Meanwhile, rumours were doing the rounds that the Shiva Karthik directorial might be released on OTT directly for a whopping Rs 35 crore deal. However, producer Surrappa Babu has now rubbished such claims.

“First of all, I have no intention for Kotigobba 3 to take the OTT route. Second, let me clarify that we did get an offer from a digital platform to release the film for a certain price, which I thought was not feasible. It is a film with good content, and when I can make a business of Rs 100 crores when released in theatres, why would I think of releasing it on a streaming platform,” asserts Surappa Babu, who has made the film on a 70 crore budget. 

The makers of the film are ready with the first copy and plan to send it to the censor board when they resume work.

Written by Sudeep, Kotigobba 3 is one of the most anticipated films of 2021. The film marks the Kannada debut of Madonna Sebastian, and also stars actors like Shraddha Das, Aftab Shivdasani, Tabla Nani, Ravi Shankar and Rajesh Nataranga. Ashika Ranganath will be appearing in a special song.

The film’s music is composed by Arjun Janya, and it has Shekar Chandru handling the camerawork.
