Web series is slowly becoming the new fad in K’town with directors like Balaji Mohan, Gautham Menon venturing into this new avenue, which is becoming an important medium in storytelling. Now, reports about Akshara Haasan signing up for a new web series are making rounds on social media.
The actress who recently made her debut in Tamil with Ajith’s film Vivegam is allegedly in talks with Viu — the makers of the web series Social starring Rana Daggubati.
However, when contacted Akshara Haasan says, “No. I haven’t really signed in for anything yet. Although, I have been speaking with few people. Other than that there is nothing to confirm right now.”
Nevertheless, she does have good opinion about the platform. “We are in the new era. And I think web series is going to be taking over. It is a new medium for creating art and it pushes a lot of boundaries. I hope it works out well,” she quips.
But she doesn’t want the film industry to take the beating because of the rise of web platforms. “I honestly hope film exhibition, as we know it, doesn’t get affected because of it, because movies have their own charm. I wish films and web series shine together hand in hand peacefully.”...
