Actress Ira Sone, who began her acting career in 2007 with the popular show ‘Kumkum: Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan’, shares her experience of doing web shows and why she is not so keen to do bold scenes.
She says: “The experience was underwhelming because there is a thin line between bold scenes and the content is absolutely bold; this thin line makes a huge difference, and in my case, the bold scene backfired because it took over the story and the content.”
“The content was really good, but the character got overshadowed because of the number of scenes that were in the show. The web can be tricky and overwhelming, especially when you do a bold scene.”
Ira Sone, who has been part of ‘Woh Rehne Wali Mehlon Ki’, ‘Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat’, ‘Saat Phere: Saloni Ka Safar’, ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya‘, and many more says that many of the TV actors are doing OTT projects but her experience is not that great.
As she says: “I believe the web is the bridge between TV and movies, and I see a lot of TV actors doing some quality work; however, I have had a very underwhelming experience.”
Ira Sone adds: “Television has a different audience that certainly can’t accept their bahus playing anything beyond a bahu. The format of TV and web scripts is very different, and I’m hopeful that in time we can see things changing.”
