Dig­i­tal medium is boom­ing right now and has caught the at­ten­tion of many in Bol­ly­wood. Ac­tors such as Ra­jeev Khan­del­wal, Richa Chadha and Rana Dag­gu­bati are just a few names, who have shifted their fo­cus on the In­ter­net and have be­gun work­ing in web se­ries. And next in line is Ar­baaz Khan. The ac­tor- film-maker, who made his di­rec­to­rial de­but with Da­bangg 2 (2012), now wants to en­ter the dig­i­tal space. “I’m in­clined to­wards bring­ing in­ter­est­ing cin­ema to the fore­front. I’m al­ways ex­cited about good cin­ema and dig­i­tal space is do­ing very well nowa­days. I want to do an in­ter­est­ing web se­ries and this is some­thing that I am con­tem­plat­ing on,” says Ar­baaz.

The 50-year-old says he is hooked on ex­plor­ing the dig­i­tal medium and ad­mits this habit de­vel­oped in him af­ter watch­ing the good con­tent from Hol­ly­wood. “Re­cently I have seen a lot of con­tent and par­tic­u­larly the stuff which is com­ing from the West. They have some in­ter­est­ing stuff is com­ing on TV and dig­i­tal plat­form. It’s so in­spir­ing and amaz­ing that you just get hooked on to it,” says Ar­baaz. He be­lieves that this is the best time in In­dia to ex­plore dig­i­tal space. “Now, in In­dia, peo­ple want to work in a web se­ries. It’s nice that there is an au­di­ence and space for it. Thus, the medium is only go­ing from strength to strength,” adds the ac­tor.
