Sacred Games was also a show presented by OTT. Her character ‘kukoo’ in Sacred Games, gave Kubbra an edge in the acting field. The actress added a whole new dimension to herself as an actor and to the show as well. The actress has done a number of films, the commencement of all of it started with Ready (2011).
Kubbra Sait Talks About OTT Platforms:
Talking about OTT platforms, Sait said, “There was this format, a good and a bad guy, a girl. Good guy defeats the bad guy. The story ends. Plus the story would also accommodate song and dance. While doing that in a two-hour-long film it was getting repetitive. OTT actually focus on stories, gives freedom for characters to develop.”
She further added, “You don’t have to be a bankable star to be a part of a bankable story on OTT. Concept of stars existed for way too long in India, OTT is breaking that and creating stars out of every good performer… Every part is an important cog in a story. And every cog in the story has a personality.”
She continued, “Doesn’t matter who you are, there’s equal space for everyone. The viewing experience is not just silver screen, but one can watch it on TV and other devices. So there’s no larger-than-life representation, everything boils down to only performances. Characters aren’t defined by number of minutes spent on screen. This kind of democratic viewing is letting the audience decide the actors and stories they want to see more of.”
Kubbra Sait ended by saying that one’s work on the web is going to be there forever. Anyone can pull out an embarrassing shoddy job done in the past, so they have to be careful. Drop in your thoughts on the actress in the comments section below.
