After Karan Johar’s made-for-large screen saga Drive went straight to the OTT platform, we now hear Vidhu Vinod Chopra directorial Shikara: A Love letter From Kashmir is also going to release on the OTT platform. The film about the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pundits was to release on November 9 in movie theatres but was postponed to February 2020.

Vinod Chopra who has produced three of the most successful films of the past decade (3 Idiots, PK and Sanju) has not directed a film in India since 2007 when Eklavya bombed badly. In 2015, he directed a Hollywood film Broken Horses featuring Vincent D’Onofrio, which didn’t do well at the box-office.

 

Shikara, a semi-autobiographical film (Vinod Chopra is a Kashmiri pundit) was being looked forward to as Vinod’s return to direction. It looks like we would have to be content seeing his Kashmiri epic on the minuscule screen.
