Sudipto Balav “Extraction” actor: content is the key to survival
Mumbai, May 6 (SocialNews.XYZ) Actor Sudipto Balav, who was recently seen in Chris Hemsworth’s digital film “Extraction”, says the content has to be strong enough to catch the eye today. He thinks that television and movies don’t have to be in danger, the web can be too.
âToday the world has opened up. Gone are the days when audiences used to see what you wanted to show. If your content isn’t powerful, then audiences won’t accept it, because it has many options. In today, if we are to survive in the entertainment industry, we have to focus only on content, “he said.
âWhen it comes to entertainment, everything is at risk and in competition with each other because there is so much content and easy access and availability, audience attention spans are getting shorter and shorter. , if my content doesn’t I have that strength and I can’t seem to get my audience in the first few minutes of my show or movie, I actually lose them, either in any format . There are thousands of movies on OTT that have no popularity. It doesn’t have to be that TV and movies are in danger, the web can be in danger too, “he added.
In fact, he said the medium shouldn’t matter at all. âActing is basically a profession. If an actor receives a character, the first thought that should come to his mind is how I’m going to do that character justice. Only the technical part changes with the different platforms,â Sudipto said.
Speaking about his own background in the industry, he shared, âMy acting journey began a long time ago. Since I was a child I have always loved acting. I have been doing theater in Kolkata for many years. . Later I did many TV series. I used to write many TV series as assistant and freelance. Then I hosted Bengali TV show. I operated from Hyderabad . In the early 2000s, regional cinema was all the rage and I was part of Bangla cinema. I saw scalability in Bangla cinema. “
âThen I came to Mumbai and, as everyone struggles, even me here. But I have to say the city has been extremely kind to me. I have met some good people and some less good people. 2006 I stopped doing television and did commercials, voice overs for two years. In 2008 I had my first South Indian film in Malayalam, ‘2 Harihar Nagar’ , and there was no turning back. “
