Akshay further added, “We have to be agile and adapt quickly in this industry, as soon as we got to know that the film body has taken this stance, taking a cue from them we decided to act as fast as possible and make available a part our platform wherein audience will be able to log in - purchase tickets - and watch their favorite film every Friday.”

If you look at Planet Marathi’s commitment to the people and its supportive nature towards the industry we are surely hitting a bullseye with our OTT and the array of features we have under it”. Akshay signs off saying, “Forget Marathi I don’t think anyone has matched anything like Planet Marathi Digital Theatre even for the Hindi industry.”
