The announcement that the new Salman Khan starrer Radhe: India’s Most Wanted Bhai will only release in movie theatres and not go the OTT way, may come as a surprise only to those completely outside Salman Khan’s circle.
Anyone who knows him even remotely knows that it would never be digital for Salman.
Reveals a close friend , “He’s been offered humongous amounts to do digital content. He has said a firm no to all the offers.”
Apparently Salman was offered Rs250 crores for a digital series on one of the leading platforms. For Radhe the offers from OTT range from Rs 150-200 crores for a straight-to-digital premiere.
“Salman didn’t consider the offer even for a second,”says the friend.
Radhe director Prabhudheva confirms, “As far as I know it was never a digital release for Salman.”
Salman Khan has never taken on more work in his entire career. Scarcely was he out of Dabangg 3 than he started , and completed another feature film Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai,the unofficial sequel to Salman-Prabhudheva’s Wanted.
