While cinema halls have opened up post the second wave of coronavirus, many people are still reluctant to visit theatres fearing infection. Many filmmakers are still opting for an OTT release in such a scenario so as to avoid losses of any nature.
Akshay Kumar-starrer BellBottom was one of the first Hindi films to hit theatres post the second wave of Covid-19. While its business was restricted, the release of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest offering, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, has certainly changed things for the better, both abroad and even in India, as far as business is concerned.
The Simu Liu actioner has minted 140 million dollars worldwide, whereas its fourth day collection in India stands at an impressive Rs 14.45 crore.
