Disney+ Hotstar & Pooja Entertainment to bring us ‘Cuttputlli’


Disney+ Hotstar has added another nail-biting thriller to its arsenal with the world-class edge-of-the-seat movie ‘Cuttputlli’. It stars the ever charming and talented Akshay Kumar. It’s a spine-chilling thriller that will see the superstar donning a new role.

It is a mind-blowing ‘whodunnit’ film produced by Jackky Bhagnani, Vashu Bhagnani, and Deepshikha Deshmukh, and directed by Ranjit M Tewari. This Pooja Entertainment production is riddled with secrets and shows an incredible mission of intercepting the psychology of a serial killer.

The film is set to release on Disney+ Hotstar on 2nd September 2022

Gaurav Banerjee, Head of Content, Disney+ Hotstar & HSM Entertainment Network, Disney Star, said that with Cuttputlli, Hotstar is bringing an exciting thriller starring one of India’s most beloved actors, Akshay Kumar. “We are delighted with our collaboration with Pooja Entertainment and Akshay Kumar to bring to the viewers a psychological thriller that will hopefully keep them hooked.”

Akshay Kumar said that he has always believed in reinventing himself and disrupting what is already done. For him, Khiladi was a very special movie in more than one way – a thriller that changed his life and established his identity in Bollywood. He said, “all these years I have been seeking a script in the thriller genre with an element of the unthinkable. Then Cuttputlli came my way and completely ‘thrilled me!’ Working with Pooja Entertainment and Ranjit Tewari has been a delight once again. I wish that this film is watched by a large audience across the globe, and so, I have chosen Disney+ Hotstar as the streaming platform for Cuttputlli.”

Producer Jackky Bhagnani said, “we are very excited about our partnership with Disney+ Hotstar to bring this big-ticket film, Cuttputlli, starring the supremely talented Akshay Kumar and Rakul Preet Singh. This wonderfully crafted thriller will be brought to a large audience through this collaboration. We look forward to it.” 

Producer Deepshikha Deshmukh said, “it has been a pleasure working with Akshay sir again. Cuttputlli is a unique nail-biting psychological thriller and will bring a whole new avatar of the actor to the audience. We are also excited to bring this cinematic experience to Disney viewers across the globe, with our partnership with Disney+ Hotstar.”
