Pippa, Starring Ishaan Khatter, Will Not Be Released On OTT; manufacturers publish official statement
The creators, in a statement, said: “This is in regards to an article that appeared in a newspaper publication yesterday under the headline “PIPPED FOR AN OTT RELEASE”, which made some completely unsubstantiated claims about alleged problems between the producers of pipe and multiplex operators, causing pipe to supposedly opt for an OTT launch. Neither the producers nor any multiplex operators were contacted for comment prior to the publication of this article.”
Ronnie Screwvala, Siddharth Roy Kapur and Kamal Gianchandani of PVR INOX, who also represents the Multiplex Association of India (MAI) as its President, state: “RSVP and Roy Kapur Films do not have ongoing problems with multiplex operators. Any rumors or articles suggesting otherwise are baseless and unfounded. We are all committed to working together to bring quality content to audiences in theaters across India. pipe It is a movie that has been made for the big screen and an official announcement will be made soon regarding the release date.”

At that time, the CCI had noticed that the producer could not prove his accusations at that time, the deals between the producer and the multiplex networks had not gone well. However, the creators are very happy with the outcome of the project and are planning a digital release soon.

At the center of the film is the amphibious warfare tank involved in the victory, affectionately christened “Pippa”, floating gently on the water like an empty ghee da dabba.
