Embracing technology is the only way to remain relevant: Siddharth Roy Kapur
In an interview with Mint, Siddharth Roy Kapur talks about the films RKF wants to produce, storytelling in OTT platforms, the tussle between writers and producers and the difference between studios and independent producers
After the studio system got entrenched in Mumbai’s film industry in the early 2000s, the logistics and stakes of film-making changed—scripts became diverse, the opening weekend box office collections became the benchmark and small films started making as much business sense as star-driven blockbusters. Siddharth Roy Kapur has been at the centre of this transformation—with several years with UTV Motion Pictures and then UTV-Disney. Kapur recently started out on his own with his banner, Roy Kapur Films (RKF).
