Amazon Prime Video has a hectic 2021 lined up in India!
LetsOTT Editorial Team -
Ever since it released Shoojit Sircar's Gulabo Sitabo, Amazon Prime Video has had a hectic 2020 as far as film releases go. Rather than slow down, the platform plans to be more aggressive while chasing movies for digital premieres in 2021. However, it is not going to take away from the company's focus on its original shows.
In a recent interview with Deadline, head of Indian originals Aparna Purohit stated that the platform currently has 31 films and shows in various stages of shooting and post-production, and another 50 projects are at the development stage. She and Gaurav Gandhi, country manager for the platform, stated, however, that the pandemic has been a mixed blessing for them. Even though shoots of various projects have been delayed, the pandemic has made their paths easier while negotiating with film producers for digital rights.
