It has consistently reached the next level in talent, technology, theatrical experience, and digital platforms like OTTs. Maybe much more will come in the future. He said; with human life, entertainment will never die. Entertainment is always going to be in demand. Since the pandemic, we have seen significant growth in OTT vertical, which will have no adverse effect on theatres demands. Instead,
OTT will be there, and both will probably complement in terms of audience choice.
