‘Web se­ries is a dif­fer­ent kind of film’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Ac­tor Ali Fazal (right), who fea­tures in a web­series, says he never con­sid­ered the web se­ries as a prod­uct for a dif­fer­ent medium, and in­stead worked on it as though it was a dif­fer­ent kind of film. “I never felt it was a web-se­ries. Ear­lier, I didn’t know much about the space and didn’t want to do it. I’m happy with films, but this is a dif­fer­ent kind of film for me,” said Ali. “We have ac­tu­ally shot it like a film and di­vided it into five parts, as nowa­days peo­ple can’t sit for too long. That was the idea, and I think it’s a very good plat­form,” he added.

Ac­tors such as Rad­hika Apte, Manoj Ba­j­payee and Raveena Tan­don have fea­tured in short films on the web in the re­cent past.

While the web space was new for Ali, he said that it has been one of the best ex­pe­ri­ences for him.
