Shekhar Kapur claims – theaters will not open for a year, OTT will have to take a stand for the release of films
Corona virus has affected the film industry of the country. However, now the stars are returning to work but due to closure of theaters, the makers have had to resort to OTT platforms to release the film. Meanwhile, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur has claimed that theaters will not open for a year yet.
Sharing the post on the official Twitter account, Shekhar Kapur wrote, “Theaters are not going to open for at least a year. In such a situation, Hype doing business of more than Rs 100 crore will be closed in the first week. The theatrical star system will also end. The stars have to adopt the existing OTT platform for the release of their film or they can stream the films through their own apps. The technology is quite simple. ”
Theaters are not going to open for atleast a year. So all hype around first weeks bussiness of 100+ crores is dead. So the theatrical Star System is dead.
Stars will have to go to existing OTT platform or stream films themselves through their own apps. Technology is quite simple
