"When we were making 'Bamfaad' we had kept all options open. It was a timely decision that we took which has been beneficial for all. We haven't incurred any loss and, yes, we feel it was a wise decision to release on OTT. Theatres are going to be shut for some time and waiting for it will not be wise. As makers, our investment are at stake and no one will bear the cost incurred on investment," Kumar told IANS.

"Bamfaad", which features Paresh Rawal's son Aditya Rawal and actors Vijay Varma, Jatin Sarna among others, is currently streaming on ZEE5.
