Choked actress Saiyami Kher says she is not getting new offers due to the Coronavirus lockdown

Amazon Prime Video has finally premiered its web series titled Breathe- Into the Shadows. The show stars Abhishek Bachchan and Saiyami Kher in lead roles. This is the second back to back release for Saiyami who recently appeared in Netflix's original film Choked. Anurag Kashyap directed Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai.
 
However, Saiyami has now revealed that she is not getting new offers due to the lockdown. She said, "I was actually shooting for a Telugu film with Nagarjuna. We were supposed to shoot a big action sequence, which was going to last 15-20 days. But unfortunately, it's on hold. There were talks of the second season of Special Ops. No dates were locked, but now who knows when it will happen. These are the two projects which were supposed to happen. And besides that, with the momentum of Choked and Breathe, I was hoping to sign on more exciting things. But the general speed is very slow with people not knowing when things are going to resume.”
 
I was joking around saying that I'm still so ‘choked’ by the response, but I'm trying to ‘breathe’. It has just been a month since Choked released and like I'm still getting a lot of responses for it. The last few months have been really overwhelming because even though my role in Special Ops was tiny the response was great. Then Choked came along and now Breathe has released. I'm glad that the work I've been doing in the last year-and-a-half is all kind of coming out in such a short span,” she added.
 
Saiyami also welcomed Abhishek Bachchan into his first web series. The actress said that she is very happy to see Abhishek taking this step.
