The Indian film industry has been hit hard as a result of Covid 19, with indefinite lockdowns and cinema closures that would affect businesses of filmmakers and producers. Like last year, many film projects have been suspended, endlessly delaying the release of the films.
But that’s not the case with actor Sivakarthikeyan’s highly anticipated medical action movie Doctor. Directed by Nelson Dilipkumar and produced by Sivakarthikeyan’s SK Productions in association with KJR Studios.
The film has been delayed a few times, with an initial release date of March 26, 2020, and went ahead for an EID release, but due to the increase in Covid cases over that period, it has resulted in the release being delayed.
The cast of the film includes Priyanka Mohan as the female lead and marks her debut in Tamil films; Vinay, Yogi Babu, Ilavarasu and Arun play essential roles in the film. Anirudh has composed music for the film. The filmmakers have left the film and the fans of Sivakarthikeyan are eagerly awaiting his on-screen appearance.
But don’t wait any longer, because the movie is all set and here’s what you need to know about its release.
There has been much speculation about the film’s release; For now, it is reported that Netflix has acquired the rights to the film for its immediate OTT release. According to reports, for the satellite release strategy, the filmmakers sold their movie rights to Sun TV.
OTT release date
With cinemas closing due to COVID-19 restrictions, the makers had to decide on the film’s release, with the makers going in a different direction and choosing an OTT release. It is said that the doctor released on June 27, 2021.
