Actor John Abraham who is set to star in Mumbai Saga which hits theatres this Friday, has said that most of the films that have released on OTT platforms have been terrible. He further elucidated that when he heard about Mumbai Saga going to Amazon Prime Video, he had a chat with the producer, Bhushan Kumar and director Sanjay Gupta and convinced them that releasing Mumbai Saga in theatres was the best move.
“Let’s be honest, it’s a common industry notion that if an actor is not confident of a film, he dumps it on OTT. Almost 90 percent of movies that opted for OTT release were bad. I am not saying this film is spectacular but we are not worried about its failure. I won’t use the pandemic as a crutch,” he told the online portal.
Mumbai Saga stars John Abraham as a gangster and Emraan Hashmi as a police officer who has made it his life’s mission to hunt him down. Besides Mumbai Saga, Abraham will also be seen in Satyameva Jayate 2, Attack and Pathan with Shah Rukh Khan.
