The theatres and film shootings were among the first to shut shop when the number of COVID-19 cases increased in the country. Filmmaker Mani Ratnam said that filmmaking will undergo changes in terms of reduced budgets that will definitely need the support of big stars.
Talking at the SICCI webinar series, he said that the immediate theatre release is going to be difficult on the market and will be eroded. He said that he will have to make sure the cost of his film is brought down.
"Which means, people involved in it, especially big stars and technicians will have to understand and help in reducing the price, reducing the cost and work towards making sure the film industry remains afloat," he said.
"It's an industry which isn't just simple entertainment, we do so much more. We give dreams to people, make them smile, it takes a lot of time for people who invest in this... Film industry also requires the support from the government. Hoping we will be back on our feet soon," he added.
