Rohit Saraf: I get uncomfortable when someone calls me an OTT star | Web Series

Actor Rohit Saraf may have had consecutive releases on the digital platform, but he does not want that to define him. Therefore, he is not good with the label of an OTT star.

“It makes me uncomfortable when someone calls me an OTT star. Because I feel like you’re putting me in a box I’m not in. When someone asks me, ‘Oh, you’re doing great work on OTT, but how “it’s with the big screen, ‘I feel it’s up to them how they perceive me,” Saraf tells us.

Here, the 25-year-old claims that it’s okay with his projects being released on an OTT platform, but not with the labels. “I do not want to mark myself as an ott actor or a film actor. If there is even a street game, and I think it’s really exciting, and something I can learn from, then I will do it,” he exclaims.

Saraf ran in Bollywood with Dear Zindagi in 2016, it followed Hichki (2018), en The Sky Is Pink (2019). It was followed by back to back OTT outings with Ludo (2020), Mismatched en Feels like Ishq,

He admits that his focus is on doing good work that makes him happy. “Well, whether that project is released on an OTT platform, on YouTube, or in the theater, it does not matter. But I do not want to put myself in a box that I am an OTT star,” says the actor and adds to, “that’s because it was never the case at first. I started with movies, which did well at the box office, and at the same time I did television commercials. Ludo was also for theater, but released on OTT platform because of the pandemic.

For him, the idea is to “expand myself to a point where I can reach every person in this country and ultimately in the world”.

That’s what he’s looking for in his upcoming projects. “This year is very exciting for me. It’s the second season of Mismatcheden Vikram Vedha with Hrithik Roshan, who has been a dream come true. It’s also something outside my comfort zone … Things look clearer to me, “he concludes.
