Kartik Aaryan is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming collaboration with Ram Madhvani. The thriller titled Dhamaka will reportedly be a direct-to-digital release on Netflix. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the makers Ronnie Screwvala and Ram Madhvani are planning to release the film on an OTT platform directly.
A source told the portal that the deal may be finalised in a week. The source added, “Ronnie Screwvala and Ram Madhvani have started conversations with digital giant, Netflix, for a direct to digital premiere and the deal is expected to be locked within 7 to 10 days. The talks began sometime last week, and so far, Ronnie, Ram and Netflix are on the same page taking the financials as also the release plan, so it’s unlikely for the deal to fall through. Paperwork will be done soon.”
