Akshay plays Arjan Sethi, a dutiful sub-inspector who vowed to keep the people of Kasauli safe. However, fate has other plans as the killer strikes from the shadows of terror, leaving behind no trace of evidence, except a body.
Produced by Vashu Bhagnani and Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh and Pooja Entertainment, Directed by Ranjit M. Tewari â€œCuttputlliâ€ will be released exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar on Sept.2. Meanwhile, Akshay whose last three films â€œBachchhan Paandey,â€ â€œSamrat Prithvirajâ€™ and â€œRaksha Bandhanâ€ did not make it big at the box-office, said that he has to make come changes as his films are not working. Talking about his last few releases not working as planned and â€œCuttputtliâ€ opting for OTT release, Akshay said: â€œFilms are not working, it is our fault, it is my fault, I have to make the changes, I have to understand what the audience wants. â€œI want to make the changes, I will dismantle my ways, the way I think, and the kind of movies I do. Nobody else is to be blamed, it is just me.â€
Akshay was joined by Rakul Preet Singh, Sargun Mehta, Chandrachur Singh, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha and Ranjit Tiwari for the trailer launch of â€œCuttputtliâ€ in Mumbai on Saturday. The actor said that OTT is not a safe space as it also requires people to give their nod to the content.
â€œOTT is not a safe space, digital space also requires people to say â€˜yesâ€™ to the content, it is not a safety net. The film releases the same way it releases everywhere; the audience, critics, and media watch the film on the net, and they give their feedback too, so forget about being safe. It would help if you work hard and that is it,â€ he said. Talking about â€œCuttputtliâ€ opting for OTT release, producer Jackky Bhagnani said: â€œThe film was designed to release on OTT. We were certain from the word go that this film will release digitally. â€œSince the inception of the film, we knew this is a great genre, and we wanted to put this story out in the best way, and Disney is the best platform for this movie.â€
