Finally, the reaction from the producers on the OTT challenge seem to have started emerging in Chennai. As an experimental measure, going by the manner in which it has been planned, a producer Tirupur Subramanian has announced a project for exclusively film industry people. His objective is to come out with a film at a budget of Rs 2 crore, in which 200 producers will contribute a lakh each, says a report in a Tamil media portal.
'Kattappa' Satyaraj is essaying a major role in this film, to be directed by K S Ravikumar, who has directed many films with Balakrishna and Chiranjeevi in Telugu cinema too. Vijay Sethupathi is expected to make a guest appearance. The people involved with the film will all be paid through banking channels only after the film is released and its business potential assessed and calculated. The box-office collections will be monitored through a IT- based programme, says Subramanian.
The release on satellite channels and other platforms too will only be allowed after the film completes a run time of 100 days or three months minimum.
