Speaking about the scale and vision, Jyoti spoke about Mukesh Ambani’s vision of the media and entertainment industry. She said,

Jio Cinema, the OTT division of Reliance Industries, was a content aggregator until now. Now, however, a number of the titles will be original. These titles will be a mixture of multilingual original films and web series. According to the company, a handful of these films will also have theatrical premieres in addition to being available very soon on Jio Cinemas.
