‘Not interested in TV; I’ve found my niche on the web’
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.
