Bhumi Pednekar reveals the reason she has not ventured into OTT yet: I've never found something...
Bhumi Pednekar is one of the few actors who is yet to mark her foray into the booming OTT space. She recently revealed the reason behind the same.
Bhumi Pednekar's year at the movies in 2023 saw the actress feature across four projects - namely, Bheed, Afwah, Thank You For Coming and The Lady Killer. The actress is anticipating two releases this year, namely, Bhakshak, which is currently in post production and Mere Husband Ki Biwi, which she is currently filming for. Speaking about her body of work, the actress recently addressed her conspicuous absence from the booming OTT space.
Why has Bhumi Pednekar not made her OTT debut yet?
Bhumi Pednekar in a recent media interaction, made it clear that her entry in the OTT space must be one of it's kind when seen in context of the rest of her filmography. Incidentally, the actress is one of the few names who is yet to mark her OTT debut. Bhumi shared that she is ideally waiting on a project that is unlike anything she has done before.
She said, "For my foray into the digital world, I was always very clear that I need to do something that's different from the films that I do...whatever I do has to be something that I've not done in film before. It has to be different from the film work also that I usually get. And whenever something like that comes my way, I think I'll jump on it. "
Bhumi Pednekar is looking forward to starring in a longer format
Further discussing the topic of her OTT debut, Bhumi expressed interest in featuring in long-form content - like a web series or limited series. The actress shared how longer content allows the actor to properly sink into the role and give it their all.
She said, "...the longer format as an actor gives me an opportunity to really flesh out my character, live the character and develop my character into something that can have a everlasting impact. That's why in that case, whatever I do has to be something that I've not done in film before...Doing a longer format has excited me for a couple of years now and I have kind of dwelled into it but I've never found something that really got me extremely thrilled. And I really hope that I find something that I resonate with."
