‘Web would have magnified Hum Aapke reach’
MADHURI Dixit Nene says if her 1994 film, Hum Aapke Hai Koun..!, had released on a digital platform, it would have have been watched by even more people. The actor is making her debut on Netflix with her Marathi production, 15th August, a satire about the struggles of middle-class India.
“There are two magical things in the world. One is a cinema hall and the other, the Internet. Netflix is a great marriage between these two. If we had the infrastructure that we do today, some 20 years ago, then it would have been great because even though Hum Aapke... was well received despite not having Netflix, the reach would have magnified.”
The actor-producer added, “It would release in over 190 countries in different languages with subtitles. It would have been watched by more people than it reached out to. When you make films, you want maximum number of people to watch it.”
