Small screen queen Divyanka Tripathi who has ruled TV for years is now moving to web with ALTBalaji web series Coldd Lassi Aur Chicken Masala along with Rajeev Khandelwal.
As the title suggests Divyanka is playing a chef out here.
We spoke to her on a quick whatsapp chat on the differences between both tube and digital, and this is what Ishita of Yeh Hai Mohabatein (Star Plus) had to say.
“Both have different target audiences. It is a tough fight between both. TV is a tried and tested medium and we know its audience and their choices on a weekly basis. TV is a medium that reaches those who are not techno-savvy,” she states when asked about the working of television.
On her point of view on the medium of web, the pretty Divyanka states, “Web is still growing and the horizon is endless. The medium of web opens up a sea of opportunity for actors and also the entertainment makers alike.”
Divyanka as Ishita of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, the popular Star Plus show has a huge ordeal ahead of her. In the show, Ishita believes that her husband Raman Bhalla is alive and she has gone on to search for him.
On the path ahead that she has as Ishita in the Star Plus show, Divyanka avers, “Ishita has a soul connect with her husband. Somehow even after seeing the news she is unable to digest it. Maybe she needs more time to believe that her husband is gone. It could be her rational mind at work or maybe she is just in denial.”
Wish you all the best Divyanka for your debut WWW endeavour and hope you make it big even there like TV.
