Tamannaah Bhatia is all set to make her debut in the web space. The actress, who is a star in Telugu and Tamil films, will feature in a web series that will release in the Tamil language.
Tentatively titled ‘The November Story’, the web series tells the story of a father-daughter relationship, where the daughter (essayed by Bhatia) tries to salvage the reputation of her criminal father (essayed by GM Kumar).
“The OTT (Over The Top) platform is also the new playground for accomplished actors like myself looking to break grounds with more challenging roles outside the two-hour cinematic timeframe. I love to get under the skin of characters I essay, and hence the longer web series format is the perfect medium to showcase my skills as it is almost like doing five films at one go. There is lots of detailing and one can explore the character in depth,” Bhatia said.
She added: “Audiences today want to consume more quality content that has a global appeal. If your story is original, contemporary and relatable, then the appreciation from the audience is spontaneous. I’m open to exploring more of these opportunities going forward.”
The web series has been directed by debutant Ram Subramanian and produced by Ananda Vikatan Group. It will stream on Hotstar.
Bhatia has starred in Hindi films as well, including ‘Himmatwala’ ‘Humshakals’ and the ‘Baahubali’ franchise.
