Kriti Sanon's Mimi to opt for OTT release
Kriti Sanon's film Mimi helmed by Laxman Utekar has been shot on a big-scale with extravagant song sequences.

Kirti Kulhari on OTT being a safer option
In her recent interview, Kirti Kulhari spoke about how OTT platforms have now considered to be a safer option by everyone. To IANS, she quoted, “Theatres are very less of an option right now. People are not considering (visiting theatres). Producers and distributors themselves are not considering doing theatre (release) because there is so much at risk. The world is in such a transit right now that it can really be a huge loss if the theatre thing does not work," further adding, "OTT has become a safer option now and a great option because you get to do what you love doing, which is acting, and people get to see you, and you get to do something substantial without the burden of whether a film would run at the box-office or not.”
