Actress Priya Bapat, who is seen in the web-series ‘City Of Dreams’, has hailed the digital space for not being gender-specific and that storytelling is not restricted.

“Don’t you think women are always fighting patriarchy…and they are doing so well…I am very happy. I think OTT is a great thing because storytelling is not restricted or it is not gender-specific,” Priya told IANS.

She sees the evolution happening in cinema too and credits the changing mindsets.

“The way you look at a story and the way you narrate the story is important. I think how people are changing, mindsets are changing and thanks to OTT platforms that we are creating shows like ‘Aarya’ also, where you are creating an audience they are accepting and interested in this kind of content,” she said.

Priya added: “So, it is a great thing. I am very happy with this change…Like how women are good at everything that they do, they are queens of multitasking. They should be ruling everything from OTT to real lives.”

Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, ‘City Of Dreams’ also stars Atul Kulkarni, Eijaz Khan and Sachin Pilgaonkar. It will be released on Disney+ Hotstar.

Bhumi said: “Being part of an Anubhav Sinha film is a matter of great honour and privilege. He shares my value system in believing that movies have the power to shift mindsets. As artists, the responsibility of telling such stories lies with us… This is a crackling subject and I can’t wait to get on to the journey of this film.”

The film will be shot across Lucknow. It is expected to go on floors in November as the unit continues their pre-production for the next few weeks.

I couldn’t have asked for a better cast. These are performers who not only shine every time they are on screen; they elevate the written word to create magic on screen.”

He feels blessed to have the team he is working with.

Sinha added: “I couldn’t have asked for a better collaborator than Bhushan Kumar who is immensely supportive at every step along the way. He is the kind of visionary who believes in the diversity of cinema and choose to tell stories that are gutsy and off the beaten path.a
