SHIKHA JAIN presents key observations from the roundtable discussion ‘Farewell 2018, Hello 2019: The new buzz in entertainment’ organised by The Free Press Journal, powered by Indian Oil

A diverse panel comprising actors, directors and trade experts participated in the Free Press Journal roundtable discussion, ‘Farewell 2018, Hello 2019: The new buzz in entertainment’, moderated by Bharathi S Pradhan. From dwelling on the explosion of the OTT medium, to lessons learnt from the box office, to trends that are poised to continue into 2019, the panel discussion threw up several interesting insights…

For me as a filmmaker, from the beginning of my career, writing a good story has always been a priority. Through my journey I have also realised that script is the only thing that is loyal to you. I have believed in the content that I have made and I am happy about how the film turned out. The other filmmakers who had believed in their content have worked as well and people are talking about it. From my point of view, that is the most important thing that has happened. Film is a collective effort and it’s not only about what the director thinks. And in my opinion, more films have worked in 2018 than 2017.
