, who's popularly known for her Bollywood movie Pink and recently released show Four More Shots Please, expresses her views on theatres vs OTT release. The actress told a leading daily, "Everyone is looking out for themselves, which is understandable. The whole theatre thing is a big question mark right now, while distributors are suffering. A film which is ready technically, theatrically — the lockdown has changed everything. I personally love OTT platforms, and watch most of my stuff on it.”
She further added, "I really don’t feel anything wrong in the producers and makers taking this decision together. Right now, distributors are at the receiving end. Rather than letting everyone suffer, somebody can get their money back if they have a deal. The kind of reach OTTs have is humongous, so why not? Producers take their chance to secure themselves first and then have a reach which is what every filmmaker looks for that whatever they’re making should reach as many people as possible.
Kirti, however, also talks about the experiential aspect of theatres. Cinema is very experiential. It’s about experiencing something on a 70mm screen. That’s irreplaceable. But practically speaking, I also feel that OTT has worked out very well, in terms of my work reaching a lot of people, which I feel is always somewhat limited in Bollywood,” she adds. The 35-years old actress plays the role of a lawyer named Anjana in Amazon Prime's show Four More Shots Please. The new season the show is due for its release and will hopefully hit the app this year.
