Actor-writer Raj Tarun is quite optimistic about the future of the movie-going culture which has suffered a massive blow due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. I think people may take some time but eventually, they will start visiting the theatres. All I want is to be a part of great content. I am doing a film for Annapurna Studios under the direction of Srinivas Gavireddy. Obviously, this lockdown has badly affected the film industry. And that allows us to explore different types of content and storytelling techniques. If the content excites me, definitely I will a part of it, irrespective of whether it will release in cinemas or on OTT platforms. The shooting of the movie was supposed to start in March but for now, it has been postponed without a date. But, watching a movie in the theatre is a completely different experience.
