In an exclusive interview with Republic World, Atul Kulkarni opened up about the boom of OTT platforms over the last couple of years.

When asked about his take on how actors are now opting for digital series, Atul Kulkarni said, “I have been working with the digital platform for the last three years and I believe the format that it provides is very special. It is not cinema, it is not daily soaps, it is a finite episode kind of a platform and I treat them as an extended movie.”

Atul Kulkarni further added, “The extend that digital platform provides is not only limited to one season. It gives an actor the opportunity to resume again if the audiences like it. As an actor, it is a great opportunity to develop their characters, rectify mistakes, give length and space to it which one doesn’t enjoy in movies.”
