Ankit later has worked on various web shows and thinks TV still has a greater reach than OTT. “The web audience has lately increased to a great extent. In this era, there are a lot of new shows that have come up which are quite realistic and our younger audiences can connect with them more. But again, speaking about the television reach, I think that in India, television still has a greater reach than OTT platforms. But undoubtedly, OTT platforms are increasing and coming up with great content,” he says. He also shared about dealing with the pandemic and its after-effects. “The covid phase was very difficult but I had convinced myself that it is not just me who is facing all these issues, there are many out there who lost their families, house, jobs. So yes, I took a short break and visited my parents and came back here, to start afresh again,
