There are no big Telugu releases on OTT platforms till now. Some small films were directly released on the streaming sites but none of the stars in Telugu showed interest in OTT release as they reportedly think that they would affect their market.
If the grapevine news is true, Ravi Teja's upcoming action flick 'Krack' may be the first big film to release directly on OTT platforms. 'Krack' is directed by Gopichand Malineni and Shruti Hassan is the heroine. Ravi Teja will be seen as a police officer in this film. Ravi Teja is going through a rough patch in his career which might have led to this news.
If at all this news turns about to be true, Ravi Teja will be becoming the Akshay Kumar of Tollywood. As we all know, Akshay Kumar's 'Laxmi Bomb' was sold to Hotstar and it may release in August. It is the first and biggest star hero OTT release in Bollywood.
