Officially, Disney Hotstar has announced the release date and time for the highly anticipated movie “Akhanda.” This is the first time the movie’s OTT streaming partner has done so.
Akhanda was the only movie that everyone talked about in December 2021 besides Pushpa: The Rise, which was a very well-known film at the time. The movie finally premiered on December 2 after a long delay because of a covid-related problem. It was a big hit with fans.
A Telugu movie called Akhanda would make more than 150 Crore at the Indian box office over the course of its theatrical run. This made it the second-highest-grossing Telugu movie of the year, after Pushpa: The Rise.
However, not every fan would have felt safe enough to go to the theatre in these uncertain times. OTT streaming of Akhanda is finally set to start this week, and the release date and time have just been officially confirmed online.
What Is The Story Of Akhanda?
Akhanda is a Telugu-language action film made in India. It was directed by Boyapati Srinu and produced by Dwaraka Creations.
They are twins called Akhanda Rudra Sikandar Aghora and Murali Krishna. They fight against a powerful crime boss called Gajendra, who is also called Gajendra in the movie.
Murali grew up in a wealthy family, but Akhanda was born dead and given to an Aghora. She was saved by the group and raised by Lord Shiva.
All grown up, Murali is a respected leader in the Anantapur District. He vows to get rid of Gajendra’s gang, which tortures workers at a nearby mine and lets radioactive substances get into the water.
Can the once-separated twins get back together so they can defeat their most dangerous enemy so far?
