Television’s heartthrob Barun Sobti is overwhelmed by the response to his new web series Asur from Voot, where he shares screen space with Arshad Warsi and Sharib Hashmi.
“I must admit it has been pretty heartwarming. I know the webspace is booming right now. But only after working with the team of Asur did I realize how professional and time-conscious the making of a web series is,” says Barun enthusiastically.
He is all set to return to shooting for the second season of Asur. “Going by the response to the first season we are definitely doing the second season. The important thing is to ensure that that the script is again a crackerjack.”
Barun feels the webspace is bound to grow in the coming years. “You can’t hold back technology. The digital domain will have a larger impact.”
About the OTT platform’s current demand due to the Coronavirus Barun says pragmatically, “People will watch only quality products like Asur at home. We can’t afford to get complacent about the quality just because the consumer has no choice at the moment.”
