Raja Krishna Menon’s Pippa, starring Ishaan Khatter, Mrunal Thakur and Priyanshu Painyuli, will release in cinemas and not on any OTT platform, according to a statement issued by the makers.

The clarification came a day after some media outlets published an article about the film going for an OTT release.


“This is in regard to an article that appeared in a newspaper publication yesterday with the headline ‘Pipped for an OTT release’ which made some completely unsubstantiated assertions about supposed issues between the producers of PIPPA and multiplex operators, causing PIPPA to allegedly opt for an OTT release. Neither the producers nor any multiplex operators were approached for comment before the publication of this article,” says the statement.

Producers Ronnie Screwvala, Siddharth Roy Kapur and Kamal Gianchandani also mention in the statement that RSVP and Roy Kapur Films have no ongoing issues with multiplex operators. “Any rumours or articles suggesting otherwise are baseless and unfounded. We are all committed to working together to bring quality content to audiences in cinemas across India. Pippa is a film that has been made for the big screen and an official announcement about the release date will be made soon,” it says.

Based on Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta's novel The Burning Chaffees, Pippa is the story of three siblings during the battle of Garibpur during the 1971 Indo-Pak War. The novel has been adapted into a screenplay by Raja Krishna, Ravinder Randhawa and Tanmay Mohan.
