AMOL PARASHAR IS SLOWLY MAKING A NAME FOR HIMSELF ON THE OTT CIRCUIT. ANALITA SETH INTERVIEWS THE RETICENT ACTOR
ANALITA SETH

Amol Parashar is an IIT graduate. He started doing theatre in college and fell in love with the process. After his graduation, while he did grab a high-paying corporate job, his heart wouldn’t commit to the corporate rat race. He decided to take a break from his job to pursue theatre professionally, which led to more opportunities, including ads and films.

He played Ranbir Kapoor’s friend in Rocket Singh: Salesman Of The Year (2009). Though his work got appreciated, offers were still hard to come by. He did act in films like Babloo Happy Hai (2014), Dombivli Return (2014), Mili (2015) and Traffic (2016). The same year, he cut his teeth on the OTT circuit with TVF Tripling and since then there has been no looking back as far as the OTT is concerned. Ask him what he finds more difficult, working in films versus working in a web series and he goes all serious saying that the medium shouldn’t concern an actor. “My job is to give my best to every role, irrespective of where it’s getting aired. The length or the treatment might defer but essentially an actor’s job is to be as truthful to his role as he can be,” he asserts.

ओटीटी प्लेटफार्म पर अंकुश आवश्यक

आज के युग में तकनीक जिसे टेक्नोलॉजी कहते हैं वो लगातार और तीव्रता के साथ बदल रही है। इसके व्यवहारिक पक्ष को हम सभी ने कोरोना काल में विशेष तौर पर महसूस किया जब घर बैठे कार्य करने के लिए वर्चुअल और ऑनलाइन मीटिंग्स, स्कूल की कक्षाओं का संचालन या फिर वर्क फ्रॉम होम जैसे विभिन्न माध्यम आस्तित्व में आए। इतना ही नहीं कल तक जो फिल्में और टीवी विश्वभर में मनोरंजन का सबसे लोकप्रिय साधन थे आज इंटरनेट और विभिन्न ओटीटी प्लेटफार्म उनकी जगह ले चुके हैं। जब २००८ में भारत में पहला ओटीटी प्लेटफार्म लॉन्च हुआ था तब से लेकर आज जबकि लगभग ४० ओटीटी प्लेटफार्म हमारे देश में मौजूद हैं, इसने काफी लम्बा सफर तय किया है।
