Rashami Desai has carved her niche in the television industry and now, the actress has transitioned to the digital medium. In a recent chat, the actress, who has recently debuted on the OTT platform with the web series Tandoor, admits that she got many offers but wasn’t quite convinced about them.
“When you do a show on OTT, not just your character but the subject too is important. Often word-of-mouth publicity works for digital projects, so one has to choose wisely. And, I have to say it has been a fabulous experience. I wanted to explore OTT as an actor as I have many dreams which I want to fulfill. I want a National Award and I am working towards it. Mujhe nahin pata kitni lambi journey hogi, kaise hoga par koshish karungi. It has been a dream for a long time,” adds Rashami.
She adds further, “When I was doing TV, which is a beautiful platform and will remain evergreen, but every medium has its own interests, audiences, and viewership. I respect that.”
The Dil Se Dil Tak actress admits that she is ready to learn new things and feels she is limitless. “Main apne aap ko badhna nahin chahti. It does take time to convince me to do something. I have learned from my mistakes and have become choosy than before,” she added.
While a number of actors have transitioned from television to films and digital platforms it is not easy. Talking about her experiences, Rashami shares, “I have not felt any issues as creators from OTT. After having reached a certain stature in life, when you have to switch to another medium, you have to go through the same process and that irks many people. It takes time to do any new thing, including switching mediums. If today, I leave acting and start a business, people won’t line up for my product just because I am Rashami Desai.
She further added, “It will take time to set the business. I feel you have to show the constant change in yourself as a performer. An actor’s life looks glamorous and is not easy at all. People love, hate, compare, and even react to you on your face.”
