As an actor, he was part of acclaimed films such as Massei Sahib (1985), Salaam Bombay! (1988), Bandit Queen (1994), Lagaan (2000), and yet Raghubir Iadav is saddened to see some form of Hindi cinema deteriorate.
“The kind of work that many actors couldn’t do is because of the cinema mafia that makes big budget movies. Cinema ko dhanda bana diia hain kuch logo no. I don’t even know what happens in such films, but they made a job out of it, it’s not a cinema “, he curses, adding that now people are fed up with it and are moving away from it. Real work is being done now, and people are now getting opportunities. Now the audience is changing. “
However, praising OTT platforms for the changes in the entertainment industry, Iadav says that they have changed and improved the whole game.
“A good job becomes visible because of the network. I think this will sustain and stay in our lives. “Now, we hope that people will also understand that this is the standard of work and that they would have to work like that,” he said.
From movies, TV and theater to OTT so far, the 63-year-old has been constantly rediscovering and starring in some favorite web fans, such as the web movie Love Per Square Meter and the Panchaiat series, which was a runaway success the last time published years.
“The reach of OTT is far greater than any other media. The audience is open to that, but they also reject you if they don’t like your work. In conclusion, regardless of whether the audience was forced to watch OTT or decided to do so, the outcome is that it is now exposed to good content and will not be satisfied with anything. “OTT platforms are used to the audience watching good things,” Iadav believes.
Sharing the news about the upcoming season of Panchaiat, he reveals that he will start filming next month.
“Our villages are like that and after a very long time, this is shown on the screen. I’m looking forward to filming the series again and I can’t wait to see what my character will do next. “Now it is also a great responsibility to maintain that standard and deliver it and make it even better,” he shared.
