Abhishek Bachchan’s OTT Debut To Compete With Sony-LIV’s Undekhi!

Just like two or more feature films clashing at  the  boxoffice,  we now have two major  digital series  being released together on July 10. Breathe 2 Into The Shadows where Abhishek Bachchan  makes his digital  debut comes from Amazon while  Undekhi, a  dark suspense thriller featuring an interesting ensemble cast  is  from Sony-LIV.

Grabbing eyeballs would be  a challenge for both the  high-profile series and may the best one win.

 Abhishek  Bachchan is   going digital  for  the  first time in  Breathe  2 Into The Shadows. The performance  and the  content are  expected to make  a huge impact on  Abhishek’s career.Sources say he has  given all of himself and then some more to  the role of  a distraught  father looking  for his kidnapped  daughter.

“It is  a  character close to my heart. Of course  I give  all of myself  to everything I play. But I really threw myself  into this one,” says Abhishek. He says he is proud of  being  part  of  something  as rousing as  this.

Abhishek who has completed  20  years  of acting feels he is  just starting out. “Breathe 2 is a new format . I felt as excited and nervous  shooting it  as I did my first film, my mentor and  guru J P Dutta Saab’s  Refugee 20 years  ago.”

 Abhishek  enjoyed romancing  the  digital  domain.  “The OTT platform is so much broader and yet not a moment is wasted . Our webseries was   put together exactly  like  a feature  film.We shot Breathe 2 in some  of  the most  difficult shooting spots with maximum emphasis  on  quality. In fact the  accent on  quality on the OTT  platform is  very high.The product must not  seem  compromised as  compared with  a made-for-theatre product. My father’s Gulabo Sitabo was made  for the large screen (though premiered on  the OTT platform last month due to  the Corona virus)  while my Breathe 2  was designed  for  the digital  domain. But the production values for both are  equally calibre-conscious.”

Abhishek feels  the  OTT platform is where the  future is. “It can never replace the  movie  experience. But  the digital platform is where  the action is right now.As an actor it allows  you to  breathe.”

There is no much that is Undekhi on  the  digital platform that we barely get a  chance  to  Breathe
