Touted as one of the best actress in B-Town, Alia Bhatt, who impressed the audience and critics with her phenomenal performance in ‘Darlings’, in a recent interview, extended her support in favour of Bollywood as many Hindi films continue to struggle at the box office. While the actress accepted that the year has been difficult for Bollywood, but she even pointed out that the industry is currently in the ‘reassessing’ phase where they are trying to figure out if the film should release on the big screen or OTT.
Talking at an event Express Adda in Mumbai, Alia said, “We say it is tough for Bollywood but are we really counting the overall number of films that have done well this year? Even in the South Indian film industry, all their films have not worked.” Furthermore, talented actress talked about her own movie ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ and proved her point about ‘good films always doing well’. “I think the lens right now is really hard on cinema in general because we’re coming back post-pandemic,” Alia continued.
While the ‘Raazi’ actress believes that ‘good content will always do well’, she even spoke about how the rise of OTT during the pandemic has become an important factor in Bollywood today. “Now we’re just reassessing what are the kinds of films that we are going to screen at theatres or on an OTT platform and what is the general consumer habit. It doesn’t mean that Hindi cinema is over,” Alia added.
Last seen in ‘Darlings’, Alia will now be seen with Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna in Ayan Mukerji’s upcoming fantasy drama ‘Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva’.
