We are exploring options to release Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya: Producer Shobu Yarlagadda
A remake of Malayalam hit Maheshinte Prathikaaram, the film is directed by Venkatesh Maha of C/o Kancharapalem fame
The lockdown has compelled several filmmakers to reschedule the release dates of their films. While some wait for the theatres to reopen after the lockdown, others are negotiating with OTT platforms to bypass the theatrical route for a digital release. Speculations have been on that the makers of actor Satyadev Kancharana's upcoming film Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya are discussing a deal with Netflix to release their film directly on the OTT platform. Shobu Yarlagadda, the producer of the comedy-drama, neither confirms nor denies these reports.
"We are exploring different options. Umamaheswara Ugra Roopasya has passed the censor and was supposed to hit screens on April 17. But the lockdown has changed our plans and we are keeping our options open for now. While we are waiting for the theatres to reopen, if the situation remains the same for a long time, we may explore the digital route. We will decide whether to go ahead with the theatrical route or release directly on OTTs in a week or two," says Shobu.
