Here are few names of actors who saw a new life to their career all thanks to OTT
Namit worked with Sushmita in the recent web series "Aarya", and is clearly floored by the former beauty queen.
"Mafia" is about six college buddies who reunite for a bachelorette party that turns into a game of whodunnit as the past returns to haunt them.
The actor says web series roles as diverse as these have propped the one of the best phases of his career, where he is getting to prove his versatility.
The Varanasi-set is Produced by Yoodlee films
"I have been playing Mafia since my college days. So, it holds a sense of nostalgia, takes me to those happy days."
After having essayed 'the good guy' and 'the boy next door', Namit ventured into the OTT space with the kind of role he has never tried before. In "Aarya", he is seen playing Jawahar.
The show is directed by Birsa Dasgupta, and created by Rohan Ghose and Aritra Sen.
'Aarya' narrates a story of how organised crime and betrayal run deep in a family.
The latest song that was performed by him and his bandmate, Anurag Shanker, is "Zarurat hain zarurat hain" originally sung by Kishore Kumar and composed by Madan Mohan for the 1962 film "Man Mauji".
The mystery thriller "Mafia" will feature six former college who come together after an unprecedented halt of five years in their friendship.
The actor's debut web series 'Aarya' is set to be released on June 19
Directed by filmmaker Ram Madhvani of "Neerja" fame, "Aarya" is an official adaptation of the popular Dutch crime drama "Penoza".
"This was the first time that all of us were doing something like this. We had to figure unique ways to dub at home and complete the job."
"It is a bold and strong narrative that takes it beyond the spectrum of a crime drama. Every character has a purpose in Aarya's journey as she goes from being a homemaker to a hardened criminal."
