Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is all set to bring his film to theaters after 5 years. Shahrukh, who is preparing to make a comeback with ‘Pathan’, is coming back at a time when even the best experts are unable to understand the behavior of the public in theatres. In 2022, where big bang Bollywood projects flopped miserably, stars who were guaranteed hits at the box office also failed.
This whole year the debate has been very hot whether the popularity of OTT platforms is responsible for this bad condition of films? Now Shahrukh has also put his opinion in this discussion. Shah Rukh said that due to the Kovid 19 epidemic, there has been a change in the way people watch content, but nothing is going to spoil the cinema. He also said that people should not watch movies on mobiles, ‘they are very small’!
‘Seen many times like this’
Shahrukh, who recently became a part of the Red Sea Festival, spoke openly on this topic. The Indian Express report quoted Shahrukh’s conversation with Deadline as saying, ‘Cinema is never going to stop because I have seen many such phases. TV came then ‘oh no one will see movies now’, VCR came then ‘no one is watching movies’. It’s been 32 years, I have seen it all. Yes, there is always something missing, there is a little problem, but cinema changes itself and comes back and calls people back to flock.
films will make a strong comeback
Shahrukh further said, ‘When you go to watch a film in theatres, it is like an outing. Films and box office have been affected. Due to Kovid 19, the habits of people to watch content have changed. But it will all settle down and the films will find their place at the box office.
Shahrukh is about to return to the big screen with ‘Pathan’, which is going to release on January 25, 2023. He is going to do a bang action in this film with Deepika Padukone, John Abraham. After this, his two more films ‘Jawan’ and ‘Danki’ are also to be released next year. After many years, it is going to be amazing that three films of Shahrukh will be released in a single year. What can be a better comeback than this! Don’t know about other films, but only these big films of Shahrukh are going to prove that OTT can never replace cinema.
