Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Ghoomketu will be one of the first Hindi films (featuring mainstream popular actors) to release directly on the OTT platform during this lockdown period. Yes, it has been officially announced that Ghoomketu will be released directly on the Zee 5 OTT platform on May 22, marking the special occasion of Eid. It can be noted that Ghoomketu is a long-delayed project, which has been ready and waiting to release, for more than a year. The film will deal with the story of a struggling writer (played by Nawazuddin), who wants to make it big in the film industry.

Acclaimed Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap will be seen playing the role of a police officer in this film, that is directed by Pushpendra Nath Misra. Interestingly, this comedy drama will also witness interesting cameo appearances of leading Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, and others. Ila Arun, Raghubir Yadav, Swanand Kirkire, and Ragini Khanna form the supporting cast.

This lockdown period has made many producers think about the possibilities of releasing their films directly on OTT platforms, rather than waiting for a theatrical release. It looks like the makers of Ghoomketu have made use of this situation to their best. Check out the official announcement below:
