Pyjama, popcorn and binge have become a new normal, lockdown or not. For the past few years, most of us have relied heavily on OTT to not only provide entertainment but also be our window to the outside world. Well, the world is open to exploring again, but the comfort of the couch seems too tempting to give up.
The coming month is going to be one big binge-fest considering the number of fresh series and new seasons of the old ones that are lined up for release. From women-leading shows to the return of some mega-successful ones, April has so much to variety offer on OTT.
Yes, with theatres opening up after COVID-19 norms are scaled back, many people would be in cinemas to catch their favourite filmmakers and actors. But hey, binge-watching from the comfort of one's home has its own fan following.
