Actor Nandamuri Kalayan Ram starrer Telugu fantasy action film is ready to hit the OTT after creating havoc at the box-office. The film is directed and written by debutant Mallidi Vassishta.
Filming of Bimbisara started in 2020 and ended in November 2021 with delay due to COVID-19 pandemic. It was shot at Ramakrishna Studios in Hyderabad. Hari Krishna K. bankrolled the film under the banner of N.T.R. Arts whereas it is scored by M.M. Keeravani composed the song with Chirrantan Bhatt.
Bimbisara OTT Release Date
As the film has done extremely well at box-office, now everyone is asking about its OTT release. As per recent reports, the movie’s makers have established agreements with OTT service Zee5. The platform has purchased the post theatrical rights of the film.
Earlier, it was being said that the film would have its OTT streaming after 5 weeks of its theater release, but as the film turned out to be a big blockbuster and has entered the 4th week of its theater run, it seems the film took a bit longer to be available on Zee5. So we can expect the movie by some time in late September or early October.
