Actor Anshuman Jha who started his career in films with Dibakar Bannerjee’s ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ and went on to well received roles in ‘Chauranga’ and ‘Yeh Hai Bakrapur’, is stepping into the web series world.
He is ready to do television shows too as he feels the medium is no bar.
He joined ‘Babbar Ka Tabbar’, a new web series, is part of the original content bouquet offered by new digital platform Zee5, from the ZEEL stable.
Set in Delhi, the show will have 24 episodes.
The actor says, “The show is set in east Delhi where a tenant called Jamiya, that’s my character, has taken over the Babbar family’s terrace room. And how they let him because he solves their day to day problems in his own quirky way.”
“I’d say there is no difference between cinema and television in today’s times. Even Meryl Streep is doing ‘Big Little Lies’ for HBO. I would love to do TV as well, if the quality of script offered to me challenges me. Unfortunately, whatever has been offered to me hasn’t. And the script is sacrosanct to me,” he added.
Anshuman will also be seen playing his most violent role ever in his next feature film ‘Midnight Delhi’.–CINEWS
