Talking about Bhonsle, producer Piiyush Singh said he is very happy that his film is going to be released on the OTT platform.

Bhonsle has already won acclaim awards in more than a dozen film festivals around the world. The film also holds the prestigious Asia Pacific Screen Award, including numerous awards at the Festival of Busan International Film Festival, London, USA.
Bhonsle is the story of Marathi policeman who goes beyond the feeling of regionalism and takes some steps which are shocking to the present society. There have been many discussions before about the subject of the film. Piiyush, who has shown the courage to make films on subjects like Bhonsle, says that it is imperative to give a glimpse of society in cinema. Regionalism has been a major problem of India and in such a situation it has been a very challenging film. We expect a good response from the audience. Golden Ratio Films co-founder Piiyush’s upcoming plans are quite ambitious.
Piiyush Singh said that, “due to the lockdown, new announcements of the company have been deferred. As everything will be normal, the company is announcing new films with some big stars.” Abhyanand Singh, the head of Golden Ratio Films, is also very excited about Bhonsle. He told that his Marathi film AB Ani CD with Amitabh Bachchan has been released just before the lockdown.
There was a lockdown upon release, after which the film was brought to Amazon Prime OTT. Abhyanand Singh said that, “Bhonsle’s content is completely new to India. This film talks directly on the issues on which we hesitate to talk. He also said that in the future, the company intends to make such issue-based films.”
