Bollywood A-listers are convinced that their place is on the big screen.
The only A-lister, who has agreed to resort to the digital platform is Akshay Kumar, whose Laxmmi Bomb will tentatively release during Diwali.
Others like John Abraham, prefer to wait.
John's Satyamev Jayate 2 will open in theatres across India for Eid 2021.
Considering the fact that the global box office figures of two big-ticket Hollywood post-COVID releases -- Mulan and Tenet -- have been lukewarm, what makes the Satyamev Jayate 2 team so sure audiences will return to theatres on May 12, when it releases?
"SMJ2 has a bonanza of action, dialogue-baazi, music, patriotism and mass masala. That's exactly what I believe audiences want to watch on the big screen," feels Director Milap Zaveri.
Satyamev Jayate 2 is not a sequel to Zaveri's 2018 film.
"It is a different story, but John is still fighting corruption," says Milap.
This time, he has Divya Kumar Khosla by his side.
Ms Khosla is music baron and Producer Bhushan Kumar's wife and an actress who took a break after marriage and motherhood.
