Termed as the mother of all the OTT announcements, today, the streaming giant Disney Plus Hotstar announced 7 movies which will be premiered on Disney+Hotstar between July and October. The Disney Plus Hotstar yesterday announced that it will held a virtual press conference on June 29 to make big announcements.
In today's press conference, the leading stars of the films were in attendance including Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, and Abhishek Bachchan. However, out of 7 movies, Vidyut Jammwal's Khuda Haafiz and Kunal Khemmu starrer Lootcase were also announced but both the actor were not invited in the press conference hosted by Varun Dhawan.
After being left out by Disney+Hotstar, Vidyut Jammwal and Kunal Kemmu took to Twitter and expressed their disappointment over the decision.
Vidyut Jammwal wrote on Twitter that "A BIG announcement for sure!! 7 films scheduled for release but only 5 are deemed worthy of representation. 2 films, receive no invitation or intimation. It’s a long road ahead. THE CYCLE CONTINUES".
Kunal Khemmu too looked disappointed and without quoting anyone, he wrote, "Izzat aur pyaar maanga nahi kamaya jaata hai. Koi na de toh usse hum chhote nahi hote. Bas maidaan khelne ke liye barabar de do chhalaang hum bhi oonchi laga sakte hai (Respect and love can never be asked for, only earned. If someone doesn’t give it to you, it doesn’t make you small. Just give us an equal playing field, we’ll show you how high we can leap)".
Vidyut Jammwal's Khuda Haafiz is a romantic action thriller film inspired by real events. The film is written & directed by Faruk Kabir and produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak. It also stars Anuu Kapoor, Shivaleeka Oberoi, Shiv Pandit, and Aahana Kumra in key roles.
