Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan claims that following the pandemic, people are happy to "go back to cinemas" to watch entertaining movies. The actor, whose most recent feature film appearance was in Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan, thinks a good movie will find an audience whether it is in theatres or on OTT.
Laal Singh Chaddha, which was released in theatres in August of last year, had lacklustre reviews there but did well when it made its digital debut on Netflix.
Kareena told PTI on the sidelines of the Marvel’s Wastelanders event, “People want entertainment. They are looking for good cinema, a good story. They are looking to be entertained. Now that Covid is over and people have moved on from that, they are happy to go back to cinemas and watch entertainment. And whether it is on OTT or in cinemas, if it is good, they are going to watch it. And even if it’s on OTT, (and) it is not good, they are not going to watch it.”
Kareena Kapoor, who has worked in the film industry for more than 20 years, claimed that a new generation of writers is currently producing a wide range of storylines. And that's the way to go, she continued, because "content is king." “We just need to churn out subjects where people will be hooked. We need more interesting stories, screenwriters and a new breed of them is coming up, who are writing different stuff. We are moving in the right direction,” she said.
“It is clear content is king and stories that entice people, stories that make people feel happy, sad, entertain them in some way (will work)” the actor added.
Meanwhile, Kareena will voice the Marvel superhero Black Widow in the Hindi Audible Original podcast series Marvel's Wastelanders, while her actor-husband Saif Ali Khan will voice Star-Lord. The series will also have voices of Jaideep Ahlawat as Hawkeye, Sharad Kelkar as Wolverine, and Ashish Vidyarthi as Doctor Doom.
