Laxmii (Disney+ Hotstar)

This much-awaited film has definitely made waves even before its release, including a name change and fighting off allegations against transphobia. A Hindi remake of Tamil film Muni 2: Kanchana (2011), Laxmii stars Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani. It’s about a man who gets possessed by the ghost of a transgender woman and has been one of the most expensive OTT releases yet – the streaming rights sold for a whopping INR 125 crore.

Chhalaang (Amazon Prime)

A black comedy about a nonchalant PT teacher of a school in North India, Chhalaang stars Rajkummar Rao and Nushratt Baruccha in lead roles and is directed by Hansal Mehta (of Scam 1992 fame). It’s also been produced by none other than Ajay Devgn. Before Rajkummar Rao graces our greens in the much-anticipated The White Tiger, Chhalaang promises an entertaining watch as a social comedy.

Chhalaang begins streaming on 13 November 2020.
