April 2002 turned out a poor month for Bollywood. All four big releases, Attack, Jersey, Runway 34 and Heropanti 2 tanked at the box office. KGF Chapter 2 was the movie of the month as its Hindi version collects more than Rs 400 Crore. While Bollywood is looking to bounce back with movies releasing in theatres in May, let’s have a look at Hindi movies to release on OTT this month.

Despite being a good movie, Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey failed to make an impact at the box office. Now, the makers would be hoping for huge success when the movie debuts on Netflix in the second half of May.
Besides these confirmed releases, Tiger Shroff’s Heropnati 2 and Ajay Devgn’s Runway 34 may also debut this month on OTT. Both movies have flopped and would look to get some audience on the digital platform.
Amazon Prime Video has acquired the digital streaming rights of Heropanti 2. There is no update about Runway 34’s digital rights.
