Hema talks about films in theatres

Speaking to PTI, Hema said, "Films on the (big) screen are very different, which we are used to. I'm used to that kind of films... the big screen. So, this OTT and web series are all nice for time pass, but I don't know how wonderful it is. That's why when Gadar 2 and Pathaan and all came on the big screen, they were all a hit.
