No benefit!!! Was the movie shot in 4K (“UHD”)? I don’t think so/highly doubt it!!! [It’s] Just a show-off commodity for the very same reason behind for what most people buy iPhones or other “iDevices”/“iGadgets” for…!!! And moreover, it’s a matter of shame that a “reputed”-broadcaster like >STAR [India] is indulging in such [mal]practices…!!! Period. 😐
