Bollywood movie Freddy starring Kartik Aaryan as the central character arrived on Disney+ Hotstar on Friday. The film ditched a theatrical outing and opted for a direct-to-digital premiere.

This film marks the second direct digital premiere of Aaryan.
Malayalam star Mohanlal's recent outing Monster by filmmaker Vysakh hit Disney+ Hotstar on Friday.
