Due to Covid-19 pandemic, the entertainment industry has incurred a huge loss in the last couple of months. The cinema halls multiplexes are closed for the last three months. They remained to be shut down for at least a month or two. As the filmmakers are going a rough phase, expect more and more movies to come out directly on OTT platforms. After Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo, more Bollywood movies have opted for direct digital releases. From Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb to Ajay Devgn’s Bhuj: The Pride Of India, these 8 eight movies will be released on Disney+ Hotstar. Have a look at the list:

Khuda Haafiz

Directed by Faruk Kabir, Khuda Haafiz is a romantic action thriller Vidyut Jammwal and Shivaleeka Oberoi in lead roles. The film is based on true events.


Directed by Rajesh Krishnan, Lootcase stars Kunal Kemmu and Rasika Duggal. The comedy movie has been postponed multiple times. It was finally set for release on 10 April 2020. But, since the cinema halls and multiplexes remained shut due to the lockdown, the makers have now opted for direct digital release.

So, this is the list of movies directly releasing to Disney+ Hotstar as part of Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex initiative which was a result of theatre shut down due to COVID-19 pandemic.
