Sidharth Malhotra on how OTT has changed cinema 

Actor Sidharth Malhotra is currently busy with his upcoming espionage thriller 'Mission Majnu'. Recently, he also starred in the war drama 'Shershah' for which he was appreciated by critics as well as the audience. Although 'Shershah' was produced with a theatrical release in mind, it was ultimately release on Amazon Prime Video due to the pandemic.

Now there is a significant difference between digital and theatrical releases and Sidharth recently talked about how former is a little better. He said, "To give them full credit, OTT platforms have removed the burden of numbers to judge a film. Pehle kya hota tha, even good numbers could override bad stories, usually it was like, ‘Paisa toh banaya na eventually’ There is nothing wrong in that. [But] once you negate that you are just looking at a film bare, what it makes you feel and not getting influenced by what it did at the box office."

Sidharth further extrapolated his point. He stated, "Now, there is no distraction (with OTT releases), you have the option of watching it for half an hour, rewinding it, watching it again... it speaks volumes about this medium. If creatively, your intention is in the right place, you can really capture and make the audience feel certain things."
