Chandrachur Singh is known for films like Maachis (1996) and Josh (2000), among others. With Aarya season 1, he made his OTT debut and was recently seen in the Akshay Kumar-starrer movie Cuttputlli. In an exclusive chat with The Free Press Journal, he opens up about his recent movie and more. Excerpts:
Do you feel that OTT has finally given you the due as an actor?
It’s been exciting, and I am having fun working on the medium. It gives me the opportunity to play very diversified characters and also gives time for the character to build up throughout the show through various episodes, unlike in films. However, my journey in films has been exciting too.
You have been working since three decades. How do you see the current changes in the industry?
I feel there have always been trends in our industry. During the ’90s, the whole format of cinema with single screens was very different, but with satellite invasion, home viewing increased massively. With the emergence of OTT today, we are all just a click away from global exposure. Some changes are always exciting.
