The sultry Bong Sayani Gupta has given amazing performance in the series Inside Edge and Four More Shots Please. Both these series that she was a part of have been nominated at the International Emmy Awards. Sayani was also seen in hit movies like Fan, Jagga Jasoos, Jolly LLB 2, and Article 15. In an interview she spoke about being nominated again for Four More Shots Please.
Speaking about how excited they are for the nomination Sayani said, “It has come at a nice time, things are so bleak everywhere, for everyone, so it is a nice happy news. We haven’t had a happy news in a long time. I am very glad. For Inside Edge we didn’t go, it was only Karan (Anshuman, director) and his family and Ritesh (Sidhwani, producer) and all. This time we all hope that if they let us we will all love to travel to New York and attend the show. I don’t know with the Covid situation.“
She further added about how the Emmys does not have any impact in India. “I don’t think it makes a huge difference in our country. It is cool, it is like a cool celebration kind of thing but in terms of career, I don’t think it is a big thing. It does not matter. It is not that people will start paying you more for being nominated for the Emmys. I don’t think it happens in the country.” added Sayani.
Talking about the OTT platform Sayani mentioned, “Now OTT is not a way forward but the only way forward. It has shifted, it has revolutionized and I think it is going to stay for eternity now. Not to say that we do away with theatres, we all love the big screen but I do believe that especially with the lockdown now, the audience is extremely receptive to good content, you no longer need a star to pull them to content. Consuming and critiquing everything.”
