John Abraham in an interview a few days ago said that 90 percent of the movies released on online streaming platforms are spoiled. Now the actor has clarified his statement.
John Abraham In an interview given to Bollywood Hungama, he said that his statement was misrepresented. The actor said that he is not happy with this. John said, ‘I think my statement was misrepresented. I sometimes feel bad when things are taken out of context. I think OTT is a blessing, but I think Mumbai Saga is a cinematic experience film. Imran and I had also discussed at the time when we saw the film that this film should be released on the big screen, not anywhere else. Thanks to Bhushan Kumar and Sanjay Gupta that it was released on the big screen.
John Abraham further said, ‘I said that our films are made for a cinematic experience, we should bring this film on the big screen. The first window for movies is the OTT platform. Do I love Netflix, Amazon, Jio, Hotstar? Yes, completely. I think they give us so much opportunity so that we can create reliable content.
Remind that earlier in the interview given to Mid-day, John had said, ‘To be honest, there is such a perception in the industry that if an actor is not confident about the film, then he has to pile on OTT. About 90% of the films that were scheduled for release on OTT were useless. I am not saying that my film is great but we are not worried about its failure. I will not use the pandemic as a crutch.
