With the current COVID 19 lockdown, things have been bad to worse for the filmmakers. The chances to see the films getting a theatrical release seems to be difficult in the current situation, hence they are seen taking resort on the digital platforms. Although we see the exhibitors adding pressure on the authorities to allow them to open the theatres, it seems that it can only start functioning from the month of September. They have already got the jolt as an increasing number of filmmakers are opting for OTT platforms to release their films.
