Digital platforms have changed the entire perception of entertainment in the last few years. Particularly with the onset of the pandemic, the OTT platforms have grown exponentially and are working extra hard to bring the best of the stars along with the best of original content to the television screen.
Movies, web series, docu-dramas, documentaries, old favorites, new releases – you name it and the big streamer giants have it all.
While Netflix, Prime, Disney+, Hulu were all popular in other parts of the world for a while now, it took the pandemic for Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, Amazon Prime, Voot, Zee5 and other such streamers to become staple necessities in the sub-continent.
Indian entertainment has global appeal so it was only a matter of time before the big stars of Bollywood made their way to the digital platform. Noted names like Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit, Saif Ali Khan, Kajol, Abhishek Bachchan, Manoj Bajpayee and Sushmita Sen have already made their presence known in the web series space.
