The Ali Abbas Zafar-directed action movie is JioCinema’s first direct-to-OTT film and one of the biggest Bollywood movies to directly get a release on OTT, or over-the-top platform. JioCinema unveiled the trailer of the movie at an event with Kapoor and Zafar.

Kapoor, who was recently seen in the popular show Farzi plays the lead role in the movie. In addition to Kapoor, the movie also features Ronit Roy, Diana Penty, Sanjay Kapoor and Rajeev Khandelwal.

Bloody Daddy is a story about Sumair, played by Kapoor, who faces off against drug lords and deceitful friends in a post-Covid party apocalypse.

“Doing an out-an-out action film was something I have been wanting to do but I was waiting for the right one to come my way,” Kapoor said, while talking about his role.


“When Ali came to me with this project, I knew this was it! It's high octane, its action packed, it's thrilling, it's intense, created especially for a digital-first audience. Ali is a true master when it comes to this style of films, and it's been very enriching for me to partner with him on this,” Kapoor added.

One movie to premiere every week

JioCinema has also announced that one movie will premiere every week on its platform and one new episode of a show will stream each day, offering a lot of content for viewers. All of this would be available for free, it added.

JioCinema which offers an ad-supported free tier also unveiled a premium subscription earlier this month. The ₹999 plan offers a 12-month validity and allows users to stream on up to four devices simultaneously.
