Veteran actor Hemant Chaudhary, a popular and respected name in films, series and serial, don’ think theaters are going anywhere, this is just a phase, and it will pass.
Hemant Chaudhary was interacting with News Helpline to talk about his forthcoming project Taali with Sushmita Sen.
When asked about the dwindling state of cinema halls and OTT world taking over, Hemant said, “Cinema Halls will survive this digital revolution phase. Earlier people would watch movies in cinema-halls, then Television came, and everyone thought it was the end of theaters, but it didn’t happen. Now the digital revolution is taking place, and the audience is spoiled for choices, and yet, cinema halls are running.”
“Pathaan did well, Zara Hatke Zara Bachke did well, I am sure there are other movies which did well or didn’t do well, the only thing that will happen is the market for the product will be defined. Certain films will release in cinema halls, and certain will have OTT release. Theaters aren’t going anywhere.”
Hemant Chaudhary will soon be seen sharing the screen space with Sushmita Sen in forthcoming Taali. The series will cover the major events of the life and struggle of Mumbai based transgender activist Gauri Sawant.
