‘Web series is a different kind of film’
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.
