Bollywood films releasing on OTT has been a controversial decision for the theatre industry. After the release of Gulabo Sitabo on Amazon Prime Video, the CEO of PVR Cinemas spoke out against filmmakers who were shifting movies to OTT due to the pandemic. However, chairman of The Walt Disney Company India, Uday Shankar, disagreed with Cinema owners and welcomed the shift of Bollywood movies to OTT.
