John Abraham, who is awaiting the release of his film Mumbai Saga, has opened up about why the makers opted for a theatrical release for the movie. John believes filmmakers who aren’t confident about their movies are usually the ones who ‘dump’ the films on OTT platforms.

Speaking to Mid-Day, John said that when he heard about there being a conversation regarding releasing the film on Amazon Prime, he had a chat with Bhushan Kumar and director Sanjay Gupta.

“(The film) won’t make as much money as movies did in 2019. All theatres across the country haven’t opened, but with this film, a few more will. After we announced this film, five more movies were announced (or theatrical run).”

“Let’s be honest, it’s a common industry notion that if an actor is not confident of a film, he dumps it on OTT. Almost 90 per cent of movies that opted for OTT release were bad. I am not saying this film is spectacular, but we are not worried about its failure. I won’t use the pandemic as a crutch,” he said.
