Nikita Rawal: I credit my comeback to OTT | Web Series

after the release of Amma’s Bolik In 2013, actor Nikita Rawal was not seen in the Hindi film industry for a long time.

After two back-to-back releases and line-up shoots with an upcoming web-film, the actor is all set to bounce back and she credits the OTT space for her comeback.

“In between, I was doing South films. I have shifted my focus to OTT now because the opportunities are immense, people are watching it and there is a comfort zone. Even if you do a feature film, you don’t know its fate in theaters and eventually it comes down to a streaming platform to find an audience. Hence, I am focusing on web-films and series as this is the medium that brought me back to the Hindi industry,” says black White actor.

Rawal further adds, “I will start my third series soon while my web-film is ready for release. It all happened because of OTT as a medium. I know the work gap in Hindi film industry. But I was able to come back here because of the web space.

The actor was recently in Lucknow for his next project. “I will be back later this month to shoot for my next series, which is being directed by Sam Roy for a leading streaming platform. I am playing the role of a doctor and the entire series is based on my character Shobha. My recent visit was with the team that was there to do Reiki. The creative team wanted me to understand my character well and also pronounce it correctly.”

This will be Rawal’s third series. “I was the first is gray (2021) With fine cast but not so well known artists. In red I played a parallel lead role playing a cop. I believe that if your craft is good then work will come to you. Apart from the audience, the people of the industry also notice you. I have also shot for a music video shy shy girl Sung by newcomer Jyotsna. We look forward to a viable release date after a series of festivals to come. We shot for the song last month.”

for web film bread cloth and romance, Raval has been paired opposite Arshad Warsi and is slated to release later this year. “In the South, I’ve done Agantha (2017), Surla the Hero (2018) and Yevdu (2019) and soon I will be shooting for my fourth film.”

Talking about Lucknow she says, “Two months back I too was on a private tour in the city. I find reasons to try and eat galawati kebabs in Tunde. When I haven’t been coming for a long time I ask my friends to bring them for me. ,
