There is a reason why Akshay Kumar is known as the busiest actor in B-Town. Even after three releases this year and two more in the pipeline, the actor has signed the dotted lines for another project! While fans were aware of the release of Ram Setu and the Soorarai Pottru remake, it came as a shocker for everyone to learn that Kumar has an OTT film releasing soon too.
Titled Cuttputlli, the actor shared the first look of the film on Twitter. Back in the police uniform, this time around, Kumar will be seen finding a serial killer in this film. While the teaser did not give much away, it did make fans excited for the trailer that is coming out tomorrow. Cuttputlli is slated to release on Disney+ Hotstar on September 2, much to the dismay of fans who expected a theatrical release of the movie.
Fans took the surprise announcement in zest but were quick to express their concerns over the film’s OTT release. Many were disappointed to know that Cuttputlli would not have a theatrical release even at a time when cinemas are open at full capacity. Replying to his tweet, his followers asked the actor for the reason behind it. The film is backed by Jackky Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment which also stars Rakul Preet Singh.
Here’s What Fans Had To Say
The film was initially titled Mission Cinderella. The film is reportedly a remake of Rakshasudu. The Bellamkonda Sreenivas starrer is a story about a newly appointed police sub-inspector who is on the lookout for a notorious serial killer who targets teenage girls.
Talking about his other projects, Ram Setu will also feature Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha in key roles. The film is slated to release during Diwali 2022. In the other project, which is the Hindi remake of Suriya’s Tamil film Soorarai Pottru, Akshay Kumar will be sharing the screen space with Radhika Apte and Paresh Rawal. He also has Selfiee, OMG 2 in his kitty, and is rumored to return for a Hera Pheri part 3.
