OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Zee 5 have really become the new trend amongst everyone in contemporary times. These OTT platforms are getting bigger and better because the number of consumers too have increased and so have their wants and desires to hunt for more content.

These platforms are generally considered content-oriented, unlike mainstream cinema which is a debatable topic in itself. But the lack of censorship intervention on OTT platform's content makes it easier for a set of genres being aired on them over mainstream cinema.

Nowadays, the thin line between cinema and OTT platforms has become blurry to a certain extent as several A-listers of Bollywood are also interested in being a part of this platform's projects.
