After an incredible premiere on Disney Plus Hotstar, fans of Dil Bechara are wondering if the hit movie will ever be released outside of India on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
There have been very few films in 2020 that had more hype and expectation behind it than Dil Bechara.
The last posthumous film of Sushant Singh Rajput premiered this Friday, July 24, to a fantastic reception and the movie did not disappoint.
However, there are also millions of people around the world who are yet to experience Dil Bechara and are wondering if the film will ever come to Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
Will Dil Bechara come to Netflix?
- Unfortunately, Dil Bechara will most likely never be released on Netflix.
Dil Bechara was a massive hit for Disney Plus Hotstar platform, who premiered the movie for free on Friday, July 24. We highly doubt that Disney will license the film out to their main competitor in the streaming marketplace.
Will this movie be released on International Disney Plus?
- Yes, Dil Bechara should also release on international versions of Disney Plus outside of India.
In an interview with IANS, director Mukesh Chhabra said: “People in the US, the UK and Canada can also watch it at the same time.” This is fantastic news for people outside of India who have also been looking forward to Dil Bechara; however, it is unclear if this will be on the standard version of Disney Plus.
Will Dil Bechara come to Hulu?
- At the time of writing, Dil Bechara will probably be released on Hulu – although this is yet to be confirmed.
According to a report in the New York Times in 2019, “the Walt Disney Company has agreed to acquire Comcast’s one-third stake in Hulu and to take full control of the streaming service” in a deal worth at least $5.8 billion.
Dil Bechara has been a massive hit for Disney Plus Hotstar in India and we highly doubt that the movie will never premiere on Hulu considering Disney’s stake in the streaming service.
Will Dil Bechara come to Amazon Prime?
- Unfortunately, Dil Bechara is unlikely to ever premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
It’s a similar story to Netflix and the licensing of the film to streaming platforms. Alongside Netflix, Amazon Prime represents another major competitor to Disney Plus, so we doubt they would agree to license the film out.
However, deals with movie rights and streaming services are always changing, so keep checking back in for updates.
