Nitish Bharadwaj who will be next seen in Samantar 2 has said that good and original regional content should be offered good money too. In a recent interview, the Mahabharat actor said, "I am not too sure about Marathi cinema, because it all depends on commerce. In a feature film, you know that if you have a good subject and a theatrical release, you can do a business of Rs 50 crore and Rs100 crore -- even in Marathi. But I don't know if OTT platforms would offer that kind of money to Marathi films. So, I don't know if OTT is a boon for Marathi cinema, but for Marathi web series -- yes, it is." Samantar 2 stars Swwapnil Joshi, Tejaswini Pandit and Sai Tamhankar.
Birthday boy Arjun Kapoor revealed that it wasn't easy to commit to the film such as Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. However, seeing the kind of love the film is getting he said, "I’m just happy the film is getting the love and acclaim it deserves. It’s a hidden gem. It couldn’t connect with people in theatres for various reasons, but the platform has made it possible for the film to reach so many audiences."
