Actress Mona Singh recently revealed that she is extremely happy to see many senior actors returning to television due to their fame on OTT platforms. Singh said that she thinks OTT platforms are giving new talent a good place to showcase their talent on and it is helping them push their career forward.
Singh who recently finished shooting for the Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha said, “In films, there are only a handful of substantial roles for women but on the web, there are many women-centric shows. The platform welcomes all good actors. In fact, there are so many A-list actors, who are doing web projects as they are getting good roles including Kajol, Saif Ali Khan, Abhishek Bachchan. There is enough and more work for everyone. I believe, if you are talented, you will get your due. Never be insecure. I remember, when big stars were hosting on TV, people felt they were taking away opportunities of TV celebs but I never felt so. Similarly, models in the 90s would feel that film actors were showstoppers and getting their work but that’s not what I think. One has to be patient and not crib that, ‘Arre these big stars are now getting into OTT.”
The actress also said that despite nepotism, nobody can survive in the film industry if they do not have talent.
