The Coronavirus pandemic threw the entertainment business into disarray, causing us to divert our attention to OTT platforms. Indian actors who were previously underappreciated in the film industry were finally given a platform to showcase their abilities.
We would not have discovered these OTT stars who wowed audiences with their incredible acting abilities in web shows and movies if it wasn’t for the pandemic.
The Family Man, starring Manoj Bajpayee, is an example of how OTT entertainment is breaking the mould. Manoj plays Srikant Tiwari, a talented spy who deals with hazards while attempting to establish a balance between his personal and professional lives in the show.
In the past, Bajpayee has played major roles that he did not receive the recognition he deserved. The online series filled the void, and he became one of the most well-known actors.
He had wowed us all with his acting abilities in films such as Gabbar, Raazi and Gangs of Wasseypur, but it wasn’t until Pataal Lok, a web series, that he finally had the chance to play the major part in Pataal Lok. With this one, he shot to the top of the charts. His portrayal of Inspector Hathiram Chaudhary wowed everyone who watched this masterpiece.
Pankaj has a distinct acting style, and in Mirzapur 2, he made Kaleen Bhaiyaa more intriguing. Over the years, Pankaj has been praised for his remarkable comic timing in his efforts. So it came as a pleasant surprise when he entered a dark zone with Mirzapur.
Tripathi had previously received critical accolades for his performances, but Bollywood did not show him the respect he deserved.
She has received considerable acclaim for her roles in web series such as “Lust Stories,” “Sacred Games,” and “Ghoul.” She is currently referred to as the “queen of OTT platforms.” What more can we say to describe how her career saw a high level of recognition after her appearance in the OTT world.
His role as Janna in Stree is still remembered by fans, but it is his outstanding performance as Hathoda Tyagi in Paatal Lok that has thrust him back into the spotlight. Abhishek Banerjee made his acting debut in Rang De Basanti and is also a casting director. He’s played a wide spectrum of characters which are very different to one another.
