Recently, several actors from Bengal have been juggling between Bombay and Kolkata and some of them such as Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Jisshu Sengupta, Saswata Chatterjee, Paoli Dam, Swastika Mukherjee, Tota Roy Chowdhury have established themselves in Bollywood. But Dev remains an exception. It has given so many hits in Bengal. Then why not try his luck in Hindi? Did not receive any offers from Bollywood? Dev gives an immediate response with his trademark smile, “Why wouldn’t they call me? Yes, there were several offers but none attracted me. So I did not accept these roles. ”
The daring actor whose latest release “Tonic” brought a breath of fresh air to the box office in Bengal, clarifies whenever he feels that there is an offer from Bollywood that can bring out the best in him, he will definitely enter the Bollywood showbiz. “Unfortunately, I have not yet found this dream role and that is why there is no Hindi movie in my kitten yet.”
What about OTT? Why can’t we see Dev in any online series or any web movie? Even Shah Rukh Khan has recently entered the OTT world. So why not? Well, now the answer comes from the producer Dev and not the actor we see. “The OTT explosion has just begun. There is still a long way to go. Who knows what will happen in the future. Let it go first and the opportunities increase more. I will definitely work at OTT as well. If the OTT time was short, then I would have already jumped on the band.
Compared to the big screen, OTT is more accessible to everyone. You can see your favorite stars playing on the screen of your mobile. Is it because of the fast accessibility of the OTT space Dev does not want to start his career in OTT now or stays away from the trend of stars becoming an easy advantage for OTT platforms? “I have no reservations. At the end of the day I am an actor and I want to continue my work as a producer and actor whatever the medium. “But if the pay is high and the offer is good, I would love to try my luck on digital platforms as well.” Eid this year.
