“It is a good time for us to explore different characters and meaty roles thanks to the revolution in the digital entertainment space. But I think we girls do not get the chance to play characters of athletes that much. I want to play a sports star, be part of a sports film in which I get a chance for physical transformation,” Aahana told IANS.

“Sports films on women are far and few in between. In our cinema, a lot of female characters are written and projected as ‘glamorous’. I like that too, but I wish that writers and directors tap into this side of stories, too. We get to play police officers, politicians or other professionals in films and shows but portraying a sports star would be exciting. It would allow me to combine my physical fitness and skill of acting in a performance, in storytelling. During lockdown, I have gained a certain physical strength,” she added.

The actress will soon be seen in “Call My Agent!”. She was recently seen in Rohan Sippy’s sitcom “Sandwiched Forever”, which dropped in the OTT space.

“The problem isn’t just the Hindu phobic content, it’s also creatively poor and deprived, atrocious and objectionable on every level hence deliberately placed controversial scenes. Put them in jail not just for criminal intentions but also for torturing the viewer #tandavwebseries,” the actress tweeted from her verified account on Monday.

Kangana’s tweet comes at a time when a criminal complaint has been filed before a Delhi court seeking action against OTT platform Amazon Prime and the makers of the web series.

The complaint filed under Section 200 of the CrPC seeks summoning, commencing trial and punishing the accused persons alleging that the web series is provoking communal disharmony and is hurting the sentiments of Hindus.

Controversy arose with sections of people claiming a particular sequence featuring Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub insults the Hindu god Shiv and also hurts Hindu sentiments.

The nine-part political web series created and directed by Zafar, features Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sunil Grover, and Gauahar Khan in key roles.

Zafar has issued an aplogy on behalf of the cast and crew.

Amyra Dastur: Good writing is changing the game

Mumbai– Actress Amyra Dastur, who was recently seen in the web series Tandav, says the past year has made OTT binge-watching a habit for all, and in the new normal the big screen experience will emerge as a point of excitement of sorts, which fans will look forward to.

“Binge-watching shows has become part of our life in the last year, and though the theatrical experience will remain a point of excitement for the audience, OTT has opened a whole new level of entertainment,” she told IANS.

“It might happen that films that will release theatrically, will face competition from web series and so we will get to watch great films, too. I think this is finally that time when the writer is coming up as king, because good writing is changing the game and providing the content in every medium,” she added.

Amyra’s latest outing Tandav has opened to mixed response and has courted controversy, with cases being filed on the show by sections of society who have objected to the depiction of Lord Shiv in the show.

The series, featuring Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sunil Grover, and Kumud Mishra among others, streams on Amazon Prime Video.
