EXCLUSIVE: Manoj Bajpayee on OTT vs Films debate: Don’t know how audience will look at cinema when theatres open
We all know how the pandemic and subsequent lockdown have made the film industry suffer. There was a time earlier this year when the theatres opened but had to shut down again. So what’s the future? After the booming OTT space will the audience go back to the theatre again? The Family Man 2 actor Manoj Bajpayee in an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble shared his point of view.
He says, “OTT is really taking care of the Entertainment part inside the households and the viewers are quite satisfied. OTT has seen the biggest boom in the last year. When the entire world closed down, people were watching web series to distract themselves and also unwind. Thankfully we have seen the emergence of some great talent. And for that, we should all salute this platform.”
The national award winner actor further added, “Without censoring and without any rules and regulations they have given wings to all the storytellers, actors and makers to tell their stories the way they want to. And that has taken the audience to a different level. I don’t know how they are going to look at the cinema once the theatres will open. Let’s wait and watch. Earlier cinema was ruling and right now OTT is on the top. At the same time, I would say the more the merrier. I want cinemas to do well, I want the satellite to do well.”
The trailer of The Family Man 2 was released yesterday, and fans are eagerly looking forward to watching the second season on Amazon.
