Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - Front Page - Shreya Mukher­jee

Web star Mithila Palkar isn’t in­ter­ested in do­ing shows on the small screen. The ac­tor of web shows, such as Girl In The City and Lit­tle Things, says she finds con­tent on TV shows to be repet­i­tive un­like web that of­fers more scope for ex­per­i­men­ta­tion.

“Nowa­days, peo­ple are more con­nected to the web. In­ter­net is both an ac­ces­si­ble and a lib­eral space to work and that’s why I en­joy ex­plor­ing the web more. There is no lim­i­ta­tion of con­tent, time on the In­ter­net and it also al­lows you do what you want. I feel, I have found my niche on the In­ter­net,” says Mithila, who is busy with her sec­ond Bol­ly­wood film, Kar­waan that stars Ir­rfan Khan and Dul­quer Sal­maan — the son of Malay­alam film star Mam­mootty.

Along with web shows, Mithila is in­ter­ested in do­ing films and the­atre. She says, “Af­ter my first film, (Mithila played ac­tor Im­ran Khan’s sis­ter Katti Batti (2015)) I was on the look­out for in­ter­est­ing of­fers till I was of­fered this film. I am happy with the kind of ap­pre­ci­a­tion my de­but Marathi film Mu­ramba re­ceived.”

And as far as the­atre is con­cerned, the ac­tor is al­ready do­ing two plays, Tunni Ki Ka­hani and Aaj Rang hai, says, “I want to do more plays but my web shows are tak­ing away a lot of time. But it’s one of the medi­ums that I en­joy the most.” She is now work­ing on the next sea­son of Lit­tle Things.
