‘Tele­vi­sion has a wider au­di­ence than films’

Ac­tor Kri­tika Kamra (left) has done plenty of tele­vi­sion shows and is ex­cited to fea­ture in a web series now. Though she’s try­ing out the new medium, yet the ac­tor feels that it will take some time for any plat­form to come closer to tele­vi­sion.

“I don’t see web be­com­ing big­ger than tele­vi­sion any­time soon. Cur­rently, web has a niche au­di­ence but the small screen has a wider reach than the films. So, it will take a lot of time for the two en­ter­tain­ment por­tals to be at par with each other,” she says. How­ever, she chose to re­main dis­creet about her web projects. The ac­tor, who was last seen in news­room drama, Re­porters is all praise for the In­ter­net.

“I am very ex­cited about this whole new phase. It will take some time to find out what will work out on the web. Right now, the beauty of this medium is such that ev­ery­one can come up with a story and show­case it there. All you need to do is shoot it and put it there. There is no cen­sor­ship but for it to be­come more stream­lined, it will take some time,” she says.
