Taapsee Pannu’s Rashmi Rocket to release directly on OTT?

According to reports, Taapsee Pannu’s Rashmi Rocket is going for a direct-to-digital release. The sports-drama film is directed by Akarsh Khurana.

Taapsee Pannu plays the role of a Gujarati athlete named Rashmi in Akarsh Khurana’s directorial venture, Rashmi Rocket. According to sources, the film is all set for a direct-to-digital release and its rights have been acquired by an OTT platform for a massive amount of Rs 58 crores.

From vigorous training sessions to behind-the-scene pictures from the film’s sets, Taapsee Pannu kept her fans hooked to the making of the sports drama Rashmi Rocket. Now, sources say that the film will take the digital route. The statement read, “Rashmi Rocket is going for a direct-to-digital release for a big 58 crores amount! This is the highest for any female-centric film we have seen that is releasing digitally. We are yet to hear more details about this one but given the content-driven landscape of the industry that we are witnessing, it looks promising.”

Taapsee Pannu penned a heartfelt note after wrapping up the shoot of Rashmi Rocket in Rann of Kutch, Gujarat, in January. Taapsee can be seen walking away in desert with her arms open in the photo she posted on Instagram. The actress wrote, “Not sure if I have the time and space to explain how this film actually happened. From the basic storyline I heard in Chennai 3 years back to actually complete its filming against all odds in these challenging times. This was one hell of a driven team effort!”

She further added, “I’m going to reserve the details for later coz I’m sure we have many more battles to fight till the release but what I can say is this is one team that’s gonna do it all with a smile and most effortlessly coz the captain of this ship @akvarious believes in working strictly in between chilling with bunch of friends on set, instead of the other way round. Producers @pranjalnk @nehaanand21 @rsvpmovies who are relentless and don’t have the word ‘quitting’ in their dictionary. @nehapartimatiyanidop whose lens can transform any basic moment into whistle blowing big screen shot . Writers, cast, art, production design , so on n so forth the list is long.

Taapsee concluded the post with, “Baaki release ke time kahaaniya bataane mein mazaa ayega. For now drawing the curtains on #RashmiRocket and moving onwards n upwards coz this Rocket has left us sky bound ! #FilmWrap #RashmiRocket.

Produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Rashmi Rocket also stars Supriya Pathak, Abhishek Banerjee and Priyanshu Painyuli.
