<p>“We are still waiting for one of the major OTT platforms to provide a decent, viable contract. But as of yet, we haven’t received any offers that are worthwhile. It appears the movie business has banded together to punish us,” he added, adding that he thinks the movie’s box office success has angered certain movie business groups. We believe that a segment of the entertainment business has banded together to retaliate against us for our success, he added.<img decoding=”async” loading=”lazy” class=”alignnone wp-image-40322″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-the-kerala-story-struggles-to-find-ott-buyers-and-sudipto-sen-says-the-film-industry-is-punishing-them-swarajya-2022-11-5b742bf1-2cd1-4d11-ba4b-211f9a417238-img3-1-11zon-750×500.jpg” alt=”” width=”1493″ height=”995″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-the-kerala-story-struggles-to-find-ott-buyers-and-sudipto-sen-says-the-film-industry-is-punishing-them-swarajya-2022-11-5b742bf1-2cd1-4d11-ba4b-211f9a417238-img3-1-11zon-750×500.jpg 750w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-the-kerala-story-struggles-to-find-ott-buyers-and-sudipto-sen-says-the-film-industry-is-punishing-them-swarajya-2022-11-5b742bf1-2cd1-4d11-ba4b-211f9a417238-img3-1-11zon-1024×682.jpg 1024w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-the-kerala-story-struggles-to-find-ott-buyers-and-sudipto-sen-says-the-film-industry-is-punishing-them-swarajya-2022-11-5b742bf1-2cd1-4d11-ba4b-211f9a417238-img3-1-11zon-768×512.jpg 768w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-the-kerala-story-struggles-to-find-ott-buyers-and-sudipto-sen-says-the-film-industry-is-punishing-them-swarajya-2022-11-5b742bf1-2cd1-4d11-ba4b-211f9a417238-img3-1-11zon-150×100.jpg 150w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/www.theindiaprint.com-the-kerala-story-struggles-to-find-ott-buyers-and-sudipto-sen-says-the-film-industry-is-punishing-them-swarajya-2022-11-5b742bf1-2cd1-4d11-ba4b-211f9a417238-img3-1-11zon.jpg 1040w” sizes=”(max-width: 1493px) 100vw, 1493px” /></p>
