Southern filmmakers not keen on OTT release: Aakanksha Singh

Wednesday 04th August 2021 08:16 EDT

Aakanksha Singh who resumed shooting in the south film industry in July 2020 has been working non-stop since the peak of the pandemic. Currently awaiting the release of all her projects, Singh counts her blessings. “I've been very lucky that I've constantly travelled for shoots. But the only concern for me is that whatever I've shot till now, is yet to come out.”

With several Bollywood filmmakers adapting for a direct-to-digital route for their projects, Singh believes filmmakers in the south are not that keen for the same. She says, “Down south, makers are waiting. There films mean theatres and people there don't enjoy watching film on OTT. For them films are huge and should be released in cinemas.” She added that she too wants her movies to be released on the big screen, however, isn't averse to doing digital projects.

“I’m shooting for a Telugu web series and also in talks for a Hindi web series,” reveals the 31-year-old. Singh currently awaits the release of her Tamil debut 'Clap', and an anthology Telugu film 'Meet Cute'. She is also set to star in Bollywood movie 'May Day' alongside Ajay Devgn.
