Vidyut Jammwal criticizes Disney+Hotstar for ignoring his movie Khuda Hafiz.
Vidyut Jamwal is unhappy with the decision of Disney+Hotstar to release 7 big Bollywood films on their ignoring his film Khuda Hafiz.
Actor Vidyut Jammwal is unhappy with Disney+ Hostar’s decision to not include him and his film from the upcoming announcement event on Monday evening. The streamer is expected to announce the release dates of a bunch of Bollywood films such as Bhuj, Sadak 2, Ludo, Coolie No. 1 and Laxxmi Bomb, which will all be arriving straight to digital.
Vidyut wrote in his tweet that seven-film is up for release on Disney+ Hotstar but only five will be given representation at the event. He says his film Khuda Hafiz did not get an invite. “A BIG announcement for sure!! 7 films scheduled for release but only 5 are deemed worthy of representation. 2 films, receive no invitation or intimation. It’s a long road ahead. THE CYCLE CONTINUES,” he wrote. The other film is reportedly Kunal Kemmu’s Lootcase.

The announcement poster bears the faces of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Abhishek Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn. Vidyut's miff came at the time when the Bollywood industry is under the scrutiny of nepotism and favouritism after the sad demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Vidyut’s followers were also disappointed by the lack of representation. “Pathetic. Only recently have they been blamed of such behaviour. At least for the sake of being in the good books, they should have had a representation of every movie. Pathetic,” read a tweet. “Dear @VidyutJammwal indeed it is a long road ahead and you will face several hurdles but worry not. We fans are always with you. Stay strong dost,” read another.
The long-pending Khuda Hafiz is directed by Faruk Kabir and also stars Shivaleeka Oberoi.
Aditya Roy Kapur opted out from Ek Villian Sequel.
