As the nation inches towards normalcy, India’s largest video service brings the magic of Bollywood blockbusters and its biggest stars directly to millions of smartphones across the country.

Fans across the country have been eagerly waiting to see their favourite stars, and get back to the joy and emotions of new Bollywood Blockbuster releases. Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex promises just that! 

Starting July 24, 2020 Bollywood fans can watch the premiers of 7 of the most-awaited movies of 2020 featuring India’s most loved actors, including Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani in Laxmmi Bomb, Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt in Bhuj: The Pride of India, late Sushant Singh Rajput, Sanjana Sanghi and Saif Ali Khan in Dil Bechara, Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Pooja Bhatt in Sadak 2, Abhishek Bachchan in The Big Bull, Vidyut Jammwal in Khuda Haafiz and Kunal Kemmu and Rasika Dugal in Lootcase amongst others.

Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex will usher in a new re-imagined ‘first-day first-show’ for Bollywood fans, by treating them to the most anticipated movies of superstars like Akshay Kumar & Ajay Devgn being delivered directly to their mobiles; truly experiencing ‘First Day First Show ki home delivery’. Existing subscribers of Disney+ Hotstar Premium and Disney+ Hotstar VIP can enjoy these blockbuster movies at no additional cost to their existing subscription. Non-subscribers can simply purchase an annual membership of Disney+ Hotstar VIP at INR 399/- to catch all these movies, and also enjoy exclusive Hotstar Specials, the world’s biggest Super Hero movies & kids favourite characters in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu, unlimited LIVE sports and much more – making it the best entertainment service in the country! 

The first movie of Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex will be Dil Bechara, starring late Sushant Singh Rajput; and to commemorate his invaluable contribution to Hindi cinema, this movie will be available to all subscribers and non-subscribers of Disney+ Hotstar. 

Uday Shankar – President, The Walt Disney Company APAC and Chairman, Star & Disney India, said “At Disney+ Hotstar, we firmly believe in pushing boundaries to achieve the unexpected. A few years ago, we took an audacious step of bringing sports closer to people by streaming it LIVE on mobile devices – a move that forever changed the course of LIVE sports in India. Today as we launch Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex, we find ourselves yet again at the cusp of making a revolutionary change by bringing the biggest Bollywood movies directly to millions across the country. We are happy to partner with the best directors and most talented actors; and provide them with a platform to present their masterpieces.”

Speaking about this initiative and its effect on the overall industry, he further added, “Theatres are a special experience. So, they will always exist and thrive. But the potential of the industry can’t be capped by the number of release windows and theatres available. Our initiative will dramatically increase the number of films that can be made, giving film-lovers more films to enjoy and the creative community more films to make. We firmly believe that this will generate a massive momentum for more and different kinds of films to be made in India. It’s a win-win for all.”

Akshay Kumar who stars in Laxmmi Bomb said, “We are excited and glad to have our movie Laxmmi Bomb being made available to millions of fans across the country on Disney+ Hotstar VIP! The movie is extremely dear to me as it is something unique I have attempted for the first time! It is an entertaining mélange of horror and humour and it has a strong social message attached to it! I am certain that this movie will bring joy and hope for everyone in these trying times!”

Ajay Devgn who will be seen in Bhuj: The Pride of India added, “Having done a hundred films, I definitely took it for granted that theatres were where our films were meant to play. However, two things happened suddenly and almost simultaneously. The Corona pandemic threw all our comfort worlds into a tizzy. And, at the same time the OTT medium that was a fairly new phenomenon gained a huge significance as far as consuming entertainment is concerned. In the future, Theatres and OTT will move in parallel. Both options offer their own strengths. Bhuj: The Pride of India on Disney+ Hotstar VIP – a platform that will showcase our film across the length and breadth of the country. I think people will once again start looking forward to new film releases.” 

Alia Bhatt who stars in the sequel of iconic movies Sadak (released in 1991) said, “Sadak 2 is a movie that is very close to my heart; it was my first time working with my father, which makes this a dream come true. It has a very new but relevant emotional pulse, with an amazing cast. Working with Aditya, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja has been magical. These are extraordinary and difficult times and all of us are trying to get through it, taking each day at a time. My father always says that a filmmaker’s destination is the audience’s heart. Disney+ Hotstar VIP gives us that opportunity to connect with our audience all across the country”

Abhishek Bachchan who stars in The Big Bull said, “There is nothing greater than the joy of being able to entertain someone through movies and great storytelling. And that’s exactly what The Big Bull will do – it will keep audiences hooked till the very end. I’m glad that the movie will launch on a platform like Disney+ Hotstar VIP where people from across the country will be able to enjoy it upon release”

Dreamt of a fancy desk but got a seat next to the photocopy guy? Envisioned the king’s life of delegating work but were saddled with endless presentations and number crunching? We’ve all had our unique first job experiences – be it saying all kinds of prayers before hitting the leave request or constantly complaining to HR about the flaky internet.

But the silver lining through it all has to be your favourite co-worker or work buddy, who makes even work seem like play at the end of day.

Here is a list of 5 films/ shows that will take you right back to the joy and stress of first jobs!

  1. Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year – Harpreet Singh Bedi is a true example of a struggler who wants to make it big in his career. However – landing a job isn’t the difficult part, but surviving the first job is.  This film is a story of a fresh graduate trying to find a balance between the maddening demands of the ‘professional’ way, and the way of his heart.
  2. Basement Company– This series chronicles the lives of first jobbers Raj, Simran and Rahul who are forced into the basement of their office while it undergoes a major transformation to attract more business. The show is set in Gurgaon, wherein these three badnaseeb buddies are put in the wackiest situations as they try to regain their territory upstairs. While trying to achieve this, they are fighting their respective battles to achieve their dreams which lie beyond the four walls of this company as well as juggling friendships, relationships and their new lives at work. The 5 episodic series is streaming exclusively on MX Player, binge watch all episodes for FREE and catch its trailer now: https://bit.ly/BasementCompany_Trailer
  3. Guru– The film is about a villager, Gurukant Desai who arrives in Bombay 1958, and rises from its streets to become the GURU, the biggest tycoon in Indian history. The film also highlights Guru’s struggles while becoming the successful textile merchant. Motivation at its peak!
  1. Official Chukiyagiri– This is a story that depicts the life of every person who aspires to build his image in the corporate world but has to face unlimited problems and obstacles – obvio! It’s a story of an intern – Spandan Chukya, who has just started his internship at an MNC. He’s very excited about his work and the people he’s going to meet, but life didn’t seem easy when he actually realized what he has to go through!
  1. Wake Up Sid–Well not every person is proactive or in Sid’s case – active. Similar is the story of Sid Mehra who is a young man living in Mumbai who benefits from the indulgence of his parents. After graduating from university, he makes a stab at working in his father’s business, but lasts only a week. He then meets Aisha, an aspiring writer from Calcutta. Sid helps her get settled in the city and then wants to take things further — but Aisha isn’t interested because of Sid’s slacker personality. Her rejection is what wakes Sid up and then the struggle to find an actual first job starts.
