John Abraham says filmmakers who aren't confident about their films dump them on OTT; Read on

John Abraham, who's gearing up for a theatrical release of his film Mumbai Saga, says he never wanted to release his film on OTT. "When I heard there were talks with Amazon Prime, I had a chat with Bhushan Kumar, [producer] and Gupta [Sanjay Gupta, director]. I am confident that a big-screen release is the right move and I'm aware that it won’t make as much money as movies did in 2019. All theatres across the country haven’t opened, but with this film, a few more will. After we announced this film, five more movies were announced [for theatrical run]."

 
Abraham further believes that filmmakers who aren't confident about their films, dump them on OTT as 90% of the films were bad. "Let’s be honest, it’s a common industry notion that if an actor is not confident of a film, he dumps it on OTT. Almost 90 per cent of movies that opted for OTT release were bad. I am not saying this film is spectacular, but we are not worried about its failure. I won’t use the pandemic as a crutch," adds John.
