If asked what has been the most-awaited release in Tollywood, youngest from the Mega compound Vaishnav Tej’s ‘Uppena’ would be the immediate answer. The team which wrapped up the shoot even before the lockdown was called has been reluctant towards digital release.
With the central government giving a nod for running shows in theatres and multiplexes, cinephiles’ eyes are now on the producers to announce the release date. However, in a major twist, Netflix has reportedly bagged the digital rights of the romantic drama.
It can be noted that the makers Mythri Movie Makers usually sell off the digital rights of all their previous movies for Amazon Prime. However, reports have it that the OTT giant cracked the deal with a fancy price for the film’s rights.
But, sources claimed that Netflix has acquired the post-theatrical digital release rights but is yet to take the final call on the theatrical release date. Directed by debutante Buchibabu Sana, the songs released so far struck a chord with the music lovers.
