Salman Khan's Radhe was the Eid bonanza of this year that released on ZEE Plex and ZEE5 rather than the theatres due to the pandemic. The actor wanted a hybrid release but with cinemas closed down, it couldn't happen. The PPV model of Radhe had put the movie at a price of Rs 249. But it's been just 12 days and the price has already gone down. Now, users can watch the movie for Rs 149.
