Actress Anya Singh, who has worked on the big screen as well as the digital space, says that there is a lot more liberty for actors in web series as there is no censorship.
“I think one of the biggest differences between a web-show and a movie is that the audience gets a lot more time with the characters. So, creatively you can also spend a lot more time carving their graph or creatively.. Since its not censored really there’s a lot more you can do for anyone be it the writers, directors or actors. There’s a lot more liberty that’s given to you creatively,” Anya told IANS.
Anya, 27, made her Bollywood debut in 2017 with “Qaidi Band“, which revolves around seven innocent undertrials who give a band performance in the prison to get into the good books of the authorities and secure their acquittal.
She then featured in web-series titled “Never Kiss Your Best Friend” along with Nakuul Mehta. The show is based on a book of the same name by Sumrit Shahi.
Anya says that in films, the audience don’t get much time to spend with the characters.
“In a film, that’s only for two hours or tow hours fifteen minutes the audience spends a lot lesser time with your characters. They remember you but in a show they spend a lot more time they really relate to it or they get attached to it. I think that’s one of the biggest differences,” she added.
