Earlier in an interview with IANS, Saiyami shared that she is glad that digital platforms have opened new opportunities for actors.
"OTT is the future. Many big actors are coming onto it, big filmmakers are making projects for the platforms and they have really well written female characters. That doesn't happen in films where girls don't have a lot to do, but in OTT projects girls are driving them. It's an added advantage," she said.
"There's no box office pressure. The shelf life of female actors has increased thanks to OTT platforms," added the actress.
Saiyami Kher made her Bollywood debut with Rakeysh Omprakash's Mirzya. The movie which released in 2016 also starred Harshvardhan Kapoor, Anil Kapoor's son. The movie tanked at the box office.
