When asked if he would like to release his films on any OTT platform other than YouTube, Kashyap said, “YouTube is still a very good platform, I think it is one of the best places to put forward our work as an independent film maker and through this platform we have been able to reach out to audiences and fans despite the pandemic. So, we are expecting people to share and we hope there is a buzz about the film.”
