NBFCs are a clear avoid except for the larger ones like HDFC Ltd or CanFin Homes which have the capability of raising capital. Apart from that, auto is supposed to be weak. Telecom and pharma are also to be avoided, says Prasanth Prabhakaran, Joint MD & CEO, Yes Securities. Excerpts from an interview with ETNOW.

The single biggest game-changer in Kollywood this year has been the delivery of films on OTT platforms. The release window between theatrical and OTT platforms has shrunk from three months to one month! Last week, exhibitors were stumped when Karthi’s super-hit Deepavali release Kaithi was released on an OTT platform (Hotstar VIP), a month after its theatrical release.
