We’ve all heard stories about people who made a name for themselves in different fields later in life. Boman Irani is excited to make his OTT debut at 62 with the psychological thriller ‘Masoom.’ In his own words, the actor recently shared his experience filming a movie and filming an OTT series.
Boman Irani discusses his role in Masoom in his own words. “In essence, it is a debut and it’s nice to do a debut at 62 years of age of any kind. But this one was a bit of a challenge because of the format. We were shooting a story that will play over a span of 6 episodes, keeping in mind one continues to work as an actor. However, while developing a character, I don’t see any difference, whether you are playing one in a cinema or in a web series, because he is a character, breathing, walking, happy/unhappy that needs to be developed through his travails, problems.”
He goes on to say, “I have to say though that there is one advantage while playing a character on the OTT platform and that is you have, as an actor, a lot more time to spread your wings and develop a character to the fullest and give it a complete arc. Sometimes in cinema, in an hour or 45 minutes, you have to complete that arc much faster and maybe a few things do get left out. The opportunity is wonderful and I would like to believe that I grabbed it with both hands.”
Masoom, set in Falauli, Punjab, will reveal the unspoken truths that haunt the Kapoor family’s lives, where complex relationship dynamics shift with time and ambition. The six-episode series, which premieres on June 17th, will feature the digital series debuts of the incomparably talented actor Boman Irani and of Samara Tijori, who will portray the other side of a complicated father-daughter relationship. Manjari Fadnis, Veer Rajwant Singh, Upasana Singh, and Manurishi Chaddha will join the lead cast.
