Mumbai, May 13, 2021: It could have been a blockbuster Eid for cinema owners if the covid-19 pandemic were not here to spoil their much-deserved party with Salman Khan starrer Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. However, for the change, the OTT platforms, Zeeplex, and Zee5 along with overseas theaters came to life with the release of this big mass entertainer after a long time.
Radhe, which was held back for a theatrical release for more than a year, couldn't avert the inevitable because of the pandemic. The movie, which finally saw a release on May 13 on the occasion of Eid, went for a hybrid release - the first of its kind of release in India. However, the devastating second wave of the covid-19 pandemic forced theaters to shut again all over India which lead to Radhe become an automatic direct to OTT release.
Directed by Prabhu Deva, and produced by Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Atul Agnihotri, and Zee Studios, Radhe has an ensemble cast including Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda, and Jackie Shroff along with Megha Akash, Gautam Gulati, Arjun Kanungo, Govind Namdev, and others.
Though the theatrical release of Radhe in India gone for toss, the movie saw one of the biggest overseas releases for Salman Khan film with over 750 screens. It was premiered on May 12 in Dubai and received mixed responses from the moviegoers. In India, Radhe will start streaming from 12 noon on May 13 on Zeeplex, Zee5, and DTH via pay-per-view service.
