Digital platforms and streaming services have exploded in popularity during the last 5 years. With the surge in popularity of OTT platforms, many aspiring and young actors have been given the opportunity to pursue their ambitions of becoming actors.

A subplot about the Indian entertainment business, which is now functioning as a launching pad for novices hoping to break into B-Town, is included in the tale about the rising popularity of web series in India. In recent years, web series have surpassed broadcast serials.

The OTT platform is also the new playground for experienced performers looking for more challenging roles outside of the traditional two-hour film schedule.

The coronavirus pandemic may have lost moviegoers their cinematic experience, but the emergence of streaming platforms has highlighted a slew of performers who have kept viewers engaged in movies and long-form programming. With the emergence of OTT, the entertainment business has been democratized, allowing it to break away from the conventional star system.

A few performers were able to resurrect their careers as a result of some of the digital initiatives, and the public saw them in a new light.

We’ve also gathered a list of performers that have charged for a large sum to feature in OTT projects. So, let’s find out how much they got:
