How to watch Sanak online…

Sanak will be streaming exclusively on the Disney Plus Hotstar platform.

Disney Hotstar provides users with three affordable subscription plans that will provide access to the Sanak movie: Mobile, Super and Premium. The Mobile plan currently costs Rs 499 a year and will give access to HD resolution, but can only be accessed through one mobile or tablet device.

The Super package is currently priced at Rs 899 a year and can be watched through two separate devices. The Premium subscription plan costs Rs 1499 a year, can be watched through four devices and provides content in 4K HD resolutions.

No other alternative platform such as Amazon Prime Video or Netflix has publicly revealed plans to distribute the movie.

ZEE5 is the most likely candidate to acquire streaming rights as they produced the film, but have also not revealed any purchasing of the distribution license.

Sanak: Digital release date and time

Sanak is currently scheduled to release through Disney plus Hotstar on Friday, October 15th.

The streaming platform has now confirmed the release time to be 12 AM IST, responding to a fan on Twitter.

Speaking on the release, producer Vipul Shah said that “The sole purpose of putting all the effort was to keep entertaining people”, adding that Sanak takes “the action a notch higher than the Commando series.”

“I hope audiences feel the same way when they see the action and emotion in Sanak. It will inhabit a very new space in Indian cinema; it’s a hostage drama, a genre that has not been explored to its full potential. It would be interesting to see all the action and drama unfold in a hospital under a siege.” – Vipul Shah, via Bollywood Hungama.

Who are the Sanak cast?

The five leading actors in Sanak are Vidyut Jammwal, Rukmini Maitra, Neha Dhupia, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Amole Gupte.
