Mumbai: Self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa has the knack of hitting the headlines often. A favourite among the trollers and memers, if you thought the entertainment provided by Radhe Maa was any less, then here’s some news that might cheer you up. Soon, son of Radhe Maa, Harjinder Singh, is making his debut on OTT. Yes, you read that right.
Titled Inspector Avinash, in the web series, he plays the role of a young police officer, who is trying to prove his mettle in a team of accomplished officers. Given Radhe Maa’s controversial image, the plot might seem otherwise, but don’t expect reality in the reel world.
“To keep the suspense alive, I won’t be able to reveal too much about my character right now. It’s an intricately crafted character that adds much value to the story. It also adds a new layer to the story,” said Harjinder.
On pandemic reducing the work opportunities, Harjinder adds that the entertainment industry works on collaboration of a vast cast and crew. “A lot of things were under way before the pandemic hit us. The uncertainty has brought many productions to a standstill. I am grateful for bagging this charismatic role amid such times. Hopefully, the future will hold many more openings,” he said.
About the genres, he likes to watch on OTT, the actor shared that he enjoys watching everything.
“I’m not very picky in terms of genres. Ever since I’ve taken up acting professionally, I watch stories not only for entertainment but also for their technical nuances. Personally, I enjoy comedy and crime the most. I am a sucker for novelty storytelling, biopics, crime fiction, and suspense thrillers. Recently, I’ve watched Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen and enjoyed it,” he revealed.
The OTT boom is here to stay. And Harjinder added that OTT has revolutionized the viewing experience. “It’s made both small and big productions accessible and enhanced the diversity in content,” he said. But then he mentioned that the experience of the big screen can never be replaced. “The plan to enjoy a film with friends and family, munching your popcorn, sipping on coffee, tea amid a like-minded theatre audience create a different experience. So theatre experience will stay, so will OTT. Both will happily co-exist,” he added.
