According to the reports by Hindustan Times, Madhuri Dixit Nene compared the scopes of the digital platforms to the big screen and stated how the latter does not bring along a sense of freedom and liberty for storytellers as compared to the OTT. Exemplifying what she said, she added that last year when people were sitting at home, they were getting their dose of entertainment only through OTT platforms. Madhuri, who began her acting journey from the movie Abodh, further stated how it gave people a choice to watch whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted, be it a film or series. She even admitted to the fact that one did not need to go anywhere to get that entertainment as compared to the big screen. 

Madhuri Dixit Nene further stated, how the webspace was a great platform for storytellers as they didn’t have to think about the constraints of making a film. She also stated about compulsions that OTT is free from and stated, “Whether it will appeal to all audiences from all the cross-sections, it has to be viable in the market, it has to be a hit”. 

While speaking about the shift in the types of roles being written for women in the Hindi industry, she stated how there was so much variety because when she had started, women-oriented films used to be the ones where she was either a victim, or was so docile, or was suddenly seeking revenge in the end. The Kalank actor then mentioned how these aforementioned things were considered to be female-dominated. Stating her views about the current scenario on women’s roles, Madhuri added how the roles were written for not just an angel or someone avenging something but were real characters with flaws and imperfections, be it a banker, artiste, a Prime Minister and stated how one could not put a character into a kind of a block or stereotype.
