Dibyendu Bhattacharya: OTT is a content driven industry and not a star driven industry

Though you have been a part of Hindi films since almost 20 years, would you agree that OTT has given you more recognition?Yes, I have been working in the film industry for the last two decades and I did theatre for a decade before entering films.

Before coming to NSD, I had already got recognition. Then I got little recognition after doing Monsoon Wedding, then post Dev D I got more recognition. It continued with Black Friday and BA Pass. So, people were already talking about my work. When I got work on OTT and entered household, all my previous work amalgamated together in one. People felt that they always recognised me b...

Vivian Dsena: Professional rivalry is everywhere, sometimes we get our dues, sometimes we don’t, but to blame the whole industry for that is foolish

Agreeing that biases exist in every field, actor Vivian Dsena says the situation is no different in TV. However, when compared to Bollywood, it’s much lesser to what happens in the film industry.

Why waste time in such thoughts or discussions? I rather worked on my craft and left rest to my audience and destiny,” says the actor adding that he isn’t stuck up to Bollywood. Hi guys hope u are all Healthy n safe.I got to know f...
