Indian actress Kriti Sanon has expressed concern over the delay in the release of films due to the lockdown caused by the coronavirus.
Kirti has recently completed the shooting of a film ‘Mimi’, in which she has played the role of a surrogate mother.
“Obviously, as an actor you want the film to reach more number of audiences, and beyond just the audience of OTT. Of course, they are great platforms, and everyone is hooked on to it, they have got great content. As an actor you want it to reach the masses, even the ones who don’t really go on these platforms.”
The actress says that films like these should be released soon.
“I hope these things will get better soon,” she said, expressing concern over the lockdown and Corona SOPs.
Kirti said that many films are awaiting their release, which will probably be released in 2021.
“Mimi as a film needs to reach the masses. It is based on surrogacy, it’s a unique subject and made in a very entertaining manner. It is something that will touch your heart, make you cry, laugh, and leave you with food for thought. It should be watched by more people who are rooted in areas where OTT isn’t watched,” she added.
“We are very excited for Mimi to release. The times we are in, it’s important for a film like that to get a release. I am hoping things normalize soon. There are so many films pending to release in general. I am hoping Mimi does too, soon, sometime around mid-2021. I don’t know what the producers are deciding. They are also figuring out a good date. It should get what it deserves”, said the 30 year old actress.
