Aditi asserted, “I was one of those ‘oh cinema, big screen, movies.’ I was shooting back-to-back Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. I remember just before the lockdown, my Tamil film was released in theatres and it was a huge hit. Then, cut to lockdown, I was told that my Malayalam film would be released on Amazon. And then, there were waterworks, tears, and crying.”

She continued and added that after being “samjhaoed”, she decided to go with the flow. “The film was released on Amazon and the kind of love it got. I was getting messages from different countries, from people, who didn’t even understand the language. Every day I was getting 30-40 messages. I was like, I told myself – what a silly girl I am. I felt stupid for crying.”

For the unversed, the panel was discussing that in the era of OTT, actors are finding new ways to reinvent themselves and showcase their versatility. The thought-provoking discussion featured Dia Mirza, Aditi Rao Hydari, Barun Sobti, and Karishma Tanna on the art of reinvention in the times of OTT.
