OTT industry and OTT culture is booming, we all know. And, the biggest gain of the OTT boom is the rise of the vernacular. Audiences in places like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal and Kerala have always preferred to watch content in their own languages — and the trend intensified in 2020 and now in 2021.

New players are now delivering content rooted in local sensibilities. Meanwhile, most states have opened theatres and multiplexes today, hence movies having theatrical releases will naturally attract the cinephiles. The Cinema lovers. The Cinema fans. OTTs are already attracting !!
