Gulabo Sitabo: Amitabh Bachchan opens up about the release of the film on the OTT platform: It doesn't feel any different from the theatres

Since the country is still in the state of the lockdown and the theatres are shut for public safety, the makers of Gulabo Sitabo have decided to release the film on OTT. The film that stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan, will release on Amazon Prime soon. Talking about the same to a leading daily, the veteran actor said that he doesn't feel any difference. He said, "First of all, I want to know what OTT means. Is it an abbreviation for ‘Oh Teri!’. Sorry, bad one. That’s the Punjabi in me. As you know, my mother was Sikh. Coming back to your question, no it doesn’t feel any different. Why should it? I’ve been working for 51 years and I’ve witnessed a lot of changes. The best way to survive is to embrace change, not fight it."

 
Since Amitabh has worked from the era of black-white cinema and to the world has reached to OTT, wondering how the actor feels about the change? He said, "That’s true. My first film Saat Hindustani was in Black & White. We then moved to colour. Then, from 35mm to 70mm. From mono-sound to the most advanced sound systems. From a single screen to multiple screens. AND most importantly the WORKER on the set from pajamas and bare feet to jeans and sneakers! The digital release is part of cinema’s ongoing process of evolution. One shouldn’t avoid change. I wouldn’t!".
