Do you think Saina starring Parineeti Chopra would have done better if it was released on an OTT platform?

A lot of movies have been postponed their theatrical release or they were instead released on OTT platforms but Saina's biopic starring Parineeti Chopra went ahead with the traditional release. The film raked in approx. Rs 22 lakh on its opening day, followed by a ]jump of 10% on Saturday collecting Rs 25 lakh, followed with a flat Sunday of Rs 23 lakh. The covid situation and the poor promotions of the movie just worsened the collections of this sport drama. A digital release would have got the film the much-needed attention and it would have probably found a bigger audience in the digital world. From the beginning of 2021, Parineeti was seen in not one but three films. She opened this year with The Girl On The Train, which released directly on Netflix, followed by the theatrical release of the gritty fare Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, co-starring Arjun Kapoor and a week later, she was seen in Saina, which was the biopic of badminton legend Saina Nehwal also released in cinemas. What is your take on the situation? Do you think it was wrong to release the more in theatres?
