Govinda Naam Mera: Vicky Kaushal starrer to skip theatrical release?

As reported by sources to Bollywood Life, “Govinda Naam Mera has been delayed far too long since its announcement. Producer Karan Johar may not wish to merely hold on to the Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Kiara Advani starrer any longer for the sake of finding a feasible theatrical window. As the calendar is already packed with major releases geared for the next few months. So he might opt for an OTT release.”

For the unversed, Shashank Khaitan had first set out to make Govinda Naam Mera with good friend Varun Dhawan. The movie was titled Mr Lele at the time. But Varun dropped out of the project, Vicky came on board and Mr. Lele was relaunched as Govinda Naam Mera.

Vicky Kaushal has also kick-started the prep for his next Sam Bahadur. The actor took to his Instagram to share photos from the prep of the upcoming movie.
