A. When theatres will open, they will see footfall, there will be an audience going to going to the theatres, surely, it will take place. When and how? Very well, that only time can inform. Cinema viewing is going to continue to be the exact same, it can be type of a down time period appropriate now. You genuinely can not assist it. It can be due to the fact of the restrictions and lockdowns that the theatres have suffered. But to say that a single medium will dominate the other… no, all of these mediums will be there. OTT and theatre will be at par with just about every other. Personally, I believe there’ll be no demarcation. Actors and directors will be functioning on each mediums.
