Nawazuddin Siddiqui may have been one of the main benefactors of India’s growing number of OTT shows, but he’s not as confident as you might say. In a recent virtual debate, the Sacred Games star spoke about the OTT room being too crowded, Khaleej Times posted.
Frankly speaking, OTT used to be a forum for content that was original and had a distinctive character from the traditional Bollywood style. Nawazuddin Siddiqui was quoted as saying, “I’m not talking about social content, but content for audiences who want something other than regular Bollywood.
“There is an overload at the moment. We have a herd-minded tendency. For that, there’s going to be a crash and there’s no doubt about it. There is a probability of dropping below the level set.
What started out as art is now becoming a company, according to the actor. “We’re turning art into business. It is art at first and then gradually becomes a company. I’m afraid that it will also seep into OTT rooms.
In the interest of company, I fear the pattern of showing everything and everything. It will happen, it has already already began,’ shared the actor, who has thoroughly explored the OTT room as an actor.
I didn’t expect these kinds of shows, for instance, to be launched on Netflix, which I won’t be able to stream. But they are being launched, especially in India, on Netflix.
Without naming the shows, Netflix and other OTT platforms have a very diverse range of viewers, he said.
