I like films the most. Nothing can beat the magic of the big screen. A larger-than-life experience! OTT content and quality are also quite competent but the concept of the film is a perfect entertainment medium. People spare three hours to just entertain themselves.”
The actor was last seen in the film Shaadisthan, that was released on OTT due to the lockdown. Meanwhile, the actor says that digitization has changed the way movies are made today. “Digitalisation and professionalism are two major changes experienced by the film industry in the last decade. Now films are more story-oriented. Kashmir Files, RRR and KGF-2’s grand success proved that a good storyline and great production quality can overpower stardom,” he says.
