“The lockdown has seen online streaming platforms and web series gaining more popularity. They definitely have a huge potential and many international companies are focusing on Indian market to set up OTT platforms. This has also made a platform for many talented actors and technicians to show their credentials. But I still believe cinema will stay. It comes with a special magic which unfolds on big screen. It can’t be compared to watching OTT content in isolation,” prosenjit shared with ETimes in an exclusive chat.
The ‘Robibaar’ actor has seen this industry from close quarters over the years. So, how well does he think Tollywood would move ahead in the coming months?
“It is not only us who are affected by this pandemic, entertainment industries across the country is suffering. Global economy has been affected badly. To be honest, I don’t have an answer to this, because I am not God. I can only hope that things will be fine in the future. We used to think that humans were the most powerful beings on earth, but the recent coronavirus pandemic had proved we were wrong. We are, in fact, puppets in the hands of Almighty. Nature is the decision-maker and will always be so,” explained an optimistic Prosenjit.
