The digital medium is the new normal for entertainment. As even though a permit has been given to reopen theatres, many filmmakers are ditching the theatrical release of their film in India and opting the OTT way. Having said that, even superstar Akshay Kumar's movie Laxmii is all set to premiere on Disney+Hotstar at 7.05 PM sharp IST on November 9, 2020. Talking on the same lines, it was earlier reported that Laxmii might hit the single screens theatres in India, giving relief to the exhibitors, but sadly that is not going to happen.
