Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani, Bhumi Pednekar starrer to skip theatrical release?

Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani starrer Govinda Naam Mera is one of the awaited films of the year. Fans of Vicky are waiting for his next big screen movie after 2020’s lackluster Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship. However, now it seems like Vicky’s admirers have to wait for his next theatrical release. Yes, if reports are to be believed then Shashank Khaitan’s directorial Govinda Naam Mera will head for a direct OTT release. 

As per the report in Bollywood Life, Producer Karan Johar isn’t keen on holding the film for a much longer period. Earlier the film was scheduled for June release, but there is no official update on it. In fact, there is not even a teaser of the film. The portal took inputs from their source, and he informed them that Karan Johar may opt for an OTT release, as he does not want to release the film in cinemas, just for the sake of a viable theatrical window. According to him, the calendar is already packed with major releases geared for the next few months. So, Johar might go for a digital release.
