en Bollywood News EXCLUSIVE: Fardeen Khan-Riteish Deshmukh starrer Visfot and Harshvardhan Rane-starrer The Miranda Brothers to release directly on Jio Cinema

Fardeen Khan made a stunning comeback this year with the much-talked-about web series, Heeramandi. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, it premiered on Netflix and featured the actor as Wali Bin Zayed-Al Mohammed. However, not many remember that before signing Heeramandi, Fardeen Khan had signed Visfot as his comeback venture. And it has now come to light that this gritty thriller is all set to skip theatrical release and premiere directly on OTT.

A trade source told Bollywood Hungama, “Visfot has been bought by Jio Cinema and it is expected to be out very soon. It is produced by Sanjay Gupta whose directorial venture The Miranda Brothers will also release on the streaming giant. Visfot, however, will be released first on Jio Cinema followed by The Miranda Brothers.”

Besides Fardeen Khan, Visfot also stars Riteish Deshmukh, Priya Bapat and Krystle D'Souza. It is directed by Kookie Gulati and also produced by Bhushan Kumar. It is an official remake of the 2012 Venezuelan film, Rock, Paper, Scissors and as per reports, Riteish plays a pilot whose son gets kidnapped by Fardeen’s character.

The Miranda Brothers, meanwhile, also features Meezaan Jafri and Sahher Bambba and is set in Goa. Its dialogues are penned by Milap Zaveri.

In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama in December 2022, Sanjay Gupta said that both these films were always meant for a digital release, “We were clear that it’ll go straight to digital. We shot those films accordingly. So, from day 1, it was decided that these will be OTT releases.”

He also added, “Nevertheless, despite these films being digital, they are very cinematic. A lot of the content created in India in Hindi which is released directly on the OTT platforms is not cinematic. Usme woh bade parde waali baat nahin hai. I am trying to bridge that gap in my films. When you watch (Visfot or my directorial venture), you’ll remark ‘Yeh bade parde ki picture main chote parde pe dekh raha hoon’.”
