OTT is the best for all aspiring actors who may have struggled to find work, says Watcho Exclusives’ Flash actor Sagar Kapoor

Every actor has their own path to mastering their craft, whether through theatre, television, or films. With the rise of OTT platforms, new possibilities and opportunities are opening up for actors. Sagar Kapoor, who recently made his OTT debut with Watcho Exclusives series ‘Flash,’ discussed how OTT has created more opportunities for actors. He believes this shift is transforming the industry.

Sharing his take on the rise of OTT, Sagar shared, ‘I definitely believe that OTT platforms are the best thing to happen for all the young aspiring actors who may have struggled to find work previously. Now, they’re doing so well, and I’m very happy to see that.”

“OTT has opened up a lot of opportunities, allowing us to see such talented actors who might not get the chance to shine in movies. There’s so much talent in the industry, and I’m glad to see them getting their moment,” he added.

The young actor portrays Aryan in the Watcho Exclusives series ‘Flash,’ who embarks on a quest to find his missing brother, Vansh, portrayed by actor Anshul Pandey. Aryan’s profound love for his sibling compels him to take unexpected actions in his relentless pursuit to locate him.

When asked about his personal experience shooting for the series, Sagar shared, “I have been a part of TV before, and while I did enjoy it to some extent, I feel more suited to movies and OTT platforms. The main drawback I find with TV is that as an actor, you don’t get much time to explore your character. You often receive the script just 15-20 minutes before the shot, and I don’t like that. I need time to prepare for my character, which you get in movies and OTT platforms.

“While shooting for Watcho Exclusives ‘Flash,’ I would receive the script a day prior, which allowed me time to prepare, and I really appreciated that. I wouldn’t mind doing TV again, but the role would have to excite and challenge me. Otherwise, I don’t think I am meant for daily soap operas.” he added.

Directed by Shaurya Singh, ‘Flash’ on Watcho Exclusives is a gripping series following Vansh Kundra, a talented portrait photographer, drawn into mystery during a routine shoot with enigmatic Aksha Chauhan. In a lavish yet eerie penthouse, unexpected events challenge Vansh’s reality. Unveiling lies and secrets, ‘Flash’ gradually reveals Aksha’s true identity and sinister forces, keeping viewers enthralled. Available exclusively on the Watcho App, Flash delivers a thrilling experience that will leave you wanting more.
