Actor Dheeraj Dhoopar, who is currently seen in ‘Kundali Bhagya’, has been a part of the television industry for quite some time now. Dheeraj, now keen to work in OTT projects, told in an interview how television is completely different from OTT in terms of content, story line and audience. Also he asked a question and said that it is difficult for me to understand why an actor cannot do TV and OTT projects together?
OTT is completely different from television
Says Dheeraj, “The television show caters to the needs of the second class audience, which ultimately makes you a household name. But OTT is completely different in those terms. OTT projects with some great content and story lines. There’s a lot of room for experimentation.”
Working continuously for many years makes an actor a household name: Dheeraj
Dheeraj further adds, “In OTT, as an artist, I feel there is a lot of freedom in terms of acting, story line or direction. TV is a different field altogether. I think television is the toughest field and It takes a lot of hard work to make it a success. Continuous work over many years makes an actor a household name.”
Dheeraj talks about his interest in web shows
Dheeraj also talks about his interest in doing web shows and says, “Currently I am in talks for a few OTT projects, but nothing is final at the moment. I have been doing ‘Kundali Bhagya’ for more than four years. ‘ and currently this is the most important project for me. While doing television shows, I am also watching some OTT projects and want to break some barriers. I find it difficult to understand that an actor TV and OTT project are the same. Why can’t we do it together? I am sure the audience would love to see me on both the platforms.”
