Mumbai, Sep 14 (IANS) Actor Ravi Dubey, who is garnering accolades for his first digital show "Jamai Raja 2.0", says the boom of digital world is the most pathbreaking thing to have happened to the entertainment industry.
"The advent of web is probably the most pathbreaking thing that has happened to the entertainment industry in recent times. I feel happy to have made my digital debut this year," Ravi told IANS.
"Performance is performance, whether it happens on web, TV, film or any other platform. One has to put one's best foot forward irrespective of the platform. However, one key difference between TV and OTT would be deadlines. TV is largely based on a daily telecast format whereas for a web series you shoot the entire season at a go. So, there is more time to invest per scene. Both mediums are great and have a loyal audience base and both are mediums of creative expression for an actor and a storyteller," he added.
"Jamai 2.0" is the sequel of the popular TV show "Jamai Raja" that was on air between 2014 and 2016. The new version of the show is billed as being bolder and edgier, and it aims to cater to fans of digital content.
"It's my first web show and I am full of gratitude with the response... But this new journey has just begun. I need my fans love by my side at every moment," he said.
Talking about the response to the show, the actor said: "We make a show for the audience and their love is our victory. We are thrilled with the audience response. Getting this kind of rating on IMDb is extremely encouraging and positive reviews are pouring in from all over. The team attempted an out and out 'Bollywoodish Masala' entertainer which has been received very well."
