The Hotstar rebrand Disney+ Hotstar has finally launched in India. The launch was delayed due to the COVID-19 outbreak in India and across the globe. Yesterday, the company hosted a virtual Red Carpet event that kicked off the launch with ‘The Lion King’ and ‘The Mandalorian’ premieres. Disney also invited Bollywood stars like Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Parineeti Chopra, etc. Disney Plus Hotstar brings over 7,000 episodes of classic TV shows along with 500 films from the house of Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios, Star Wars and National Geographic.
