There are several filmmakers and producers, across film industries, who have already opted for OTT platforms for the release of their films while some are still wondering to go for theatrical release. It is owing to the coronavirus pandemic that many makers had to skip theatrical release as the cinema halls are closed. Even now there is no clarity by when the theatres will reopen but film exhibitors expect the makers to opt for theatrical release. Considering the amount of losses that will happen, many have decided to go for a direct web release and the next film to join the bandwagon seems to be Anushka Shetty starrer Nishabdham.
