Even with cinemas working again, web won’t shut down: Abhay Deol


In an exclusive interview with PeepingMoon, Abhay Deol talked about reuniting with Mahie Gill a decade later in 1962: The War In The Hills after Dev D, why the Disney+Hotstar web series is different from the rest of war-based shows, and if the opening of theatres will affect the content releasing on OTT platforms.

Talking about the re-opening of cinemas and if that will have an impact on web viewership, Abhay said, "Even before COVID, web was out there. It did get a boost because of COVID but even with cinemas working again, web won't shut down."
