Adil Hussain: There’s huge appreciation for fresh, undiscovered contents on OTT

A theatre veteran and star in his days at the National School of Drama, and a colourful stint on the London stage, Adil Hussain’s recall amongst millennial audiences has grown hugely, courtesy his prominent presence in alternate content on streaming platforms.

“We are grooming and educating a different set of audience with streaming platforms, which I hope will seep over to larger, common viewers. You see the rates at which 4G and now 5G are being offered to Indians, and with huge access everywhere, there is huge amount of appreciation for fresh, undiscovered content and films. Content led series are bigger draws today. We are sitting here in Assam and watching Narcos. This wouldn’t have been possible a few years back. And this is a fantastic situation for actors,” explained the acting powerhouse while speaking exclusively to ETimes.

Adil Hussain can easily be ranked among very few actors in Indian film industry who is never afraid of using celebrity megaphone to raise his voice for what’s most important. His acting career looks doubly impressive. The noted Assamese star has done several intriguing projects on the horizon that has toggled between Oscar baits and commercial hits.
