AU­DI­ENCES ON THE WEB ARE FAR MORE OPEN AND AC­CEPT­ING

Much like her con­tem­po­raries, ac­tor San­deepa Dhar is also ex­plor­ing the web medium. The ac­tor is work­ing on a web se­ries star­ring Vivek Oberoi. How­ever, San­deepa is tightlipped about the project.

“I’m not sup­posed to talk about it. I can say that the show is based on the un­der­world and the nar­ra­tive is in­ter­est­ing. My char­ac­ter in it is also dif­fer­ent. I had been of­fered sev­eral web se­ries be­fore but then I de­cided to say yes to this one. It feels a lot like a film,” she says.

San­deepa feels dig­i­tal is the next big thing. “Ev­ery­one is work­ing on the web; be it new­com­ers or known ac­tors. The reach of the web is much more than any other medium. There is so much scope to ex­per­i­ment on the plat­form, the rea­son why we are get­ting to see some­thing new with ev­ery show. Also, the au­di­ences on the web are far more open and ac­cept­ing. As an artist, I feel there is so much for me to do given the un­lim­ited op­por­tu­ni­ties it pro­vides,” adds San­deepa, who has done films such as Da­bangg 2 (2012) and Heropanti (2014).

Mean­while, she has done a Spanish film, Mien­tras Dure La Guerra, in which she plays the role of a Puerto Ri­can girl. “She (the char­ac­ter) is a trav­eller and a writer, who vis­its Spain and the film high­lights her jour­ney,” says San­deepa, who is cur­rently film­ing her next Bol­ly­wood project ti­tled Fir­rkie.
