Reflecting upon his journey as an actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui flourished a lot in the digital environment but now he is not satisfied of what is been portrayed on digital platforms.Nawazuddin Siddiqui has time and again proved his Versatility on digital platforms but he is quite upset,so he will not work any more digitally. He says “The platform has become a dumping ground for redundant shows. We either have shows that don’t deserve to be seen in the first place. Or sequels to shows that have nothing more to say.”
Talking about how quantity has drastically affected the quality in the digital environment he said“When I did Sacred Games for Netflix, there was an excitement and challenge around the digital medium. New talent was being given a chance Now that freshness is gone. It’s become dhanda (racket) for big production houses and actors who are now so-called stars on the OTT platform. Major film producers in Bollywood have cut lucrative deals with all the big players in the OTT field. Producers get whopping amounts to create unlimited content. Quantity has killed quality.”
Pointing out what the content actually meant for the audience and as for now they have multiple choices he says at the end quality matters.“When I can’t bear to watch them how can I bear to be in them?” he says as he departs himself from working in digital platforms“Yeh star system bade parde ko kha gaya (this star system killed the big screen). Now we have so-called stars on OTT claiming big money and throwing tantrums like Bollywood A-listers. They forget. Content is king. Woh zamana chala gala. When stars ruled. Before this lockdown and the digital domination, A-listers would release their films in 3,000 theatre across the country. People had no choice but to see them. Now they have unlimited choices.”
