At the trailer launch of Bloody Daddy, Shahid was asked about the same. He looked pretty shocked and jokingly asked the scribe to give him that amount of money and he will do his film. Director Ali Abbas Zafar also joked and added, “You said less.”
Shahid was then asked if the makers were able to break the budget with their OTT deal. To which, he replied, “Nahi Sir, humne sabko bhade mein leke Jio ko free mein de diya picture.”
Adding to Shahid’s reply, the makers said that the streaming platform paid them whatever was essential. Shahid then further added, “Acha Dekho, yahah pe jo teen log baithe hai, kya hum dukhi lagre hai? Are we looking unhappy, please tell us? Mathematics pe matt ghuso.”
At the event, Shahid said that Bloody Daddy has been developed with the idea of providing the big screen experience on an OTT platform. It also features Diana Penty, Sanjay Kapoor, Ronit Roy, and Rajeev Khandelwal in pivotal roles.
