Meanwhile, a video has surfaced online, that almost confirms that the seven films were indeed going to be showcased on the platform. The video is from Disney+Hotstar itself and features some of the unreleased first looks of the films. This also included Sushant Singh Rajput’s Dil Bechara, that has already been announced, Vidyut Jammwal’s Khuda Haafiz and Kunal Lemmu’s Lootcase.
However, the video is not avaitable on any of the official platforms of the company, but almost confirms the release of ‘7 blockbusters’ over the course of three months, to make it a ‘first day, first show ki home delivery.’
However, none of these films feature Varun Dhawan who is also a part of the event tomorrow.
