AMIT SADH
Man's World|March 2021
BE IT HIS FILMFARE AWARD FOR BREATHE S2, OR ALL THE ACCLAIM FOR AVRODH: THE SEIGE WITHIN, SADH WAS DEFINITELY AT HIS BUSIEST LAST YEAR —AND THE ACCOLADES JUST REFUSE TO STOP
SAMREEN TUNGEKAR

Do you know Amit Sadh has been in the industry for 20 years now? Yes, 20 years of doing what he loves, going through many ups and downs, and coming into his own. Sadh started his career on TV, playing a college-going heart-throb in one of those many shows about romance, and after a few reality show stints, bagged his first film — Kai Po Che! — in 2013. Did that mean he had finally made it to the big league? Well, not immediately, but the graph only went upwards from there.

In an MW interview last year, Sadh openly spoke about going off the grid. “I went away to better myself as an actor, and as a person. I then came back, and worked even harder to find work again. It took a little while. But the lesson is, it’s okay to go away to work on your craft. You see people take breaks in other fields, but if an actor does it, we all think he’s fallen off,” he had said. That decision to take a break was probably one of the best decisions he made for his career, because as he bounced back, the audience was sitting up and taking notice of his talent. In fact, he continuously emphasises on the importance of taking a break, and after the number of releases he has had in the past two years, and he says, “It’s been intense. Although, I would love to take a bit of a break again at some point, to relax and focus on myself a little. Maybe travel a little and just live life without work, for a while. One has to earn and make more moments to be able to come back on a film set, and share those moments. If you don’t do that, you become repetitive, and could be boring for your audience.” Work-life balance, right?

OTT has allowed the power to be in the hands of the viewer. I hope streaming services take more risks with the shows they put out, and tell stories of people that didn't have a voice in the past

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।
