The censorship of OTT content has always been a debatable topic. Many celebrities have put forth their opinions on this matter in the past.

In an exclusive chat with OTTplay, Helly said makers need to be more sensible while working on the content they're making for the digital space. The Gullak 4 actress added audience has become smart and they know the intent with which certain scenes are placed in a web show or a film.

Helly Shah on OTT censorship

Speaking exclusively with us, Helly Shah shared her thoughts on how OTT has evolved as a medium over the years. At the same time, the actress revealed if the content on streaming platforms need to be censored. 

"There are shows wherein you see one particular scene, and you realize it was required. They very smartly put only one scene. But there are certain shows wherein you feel yaha kya hi ho raha hain. As makers and creators, people should be more sensible in the way they are putting certain scenes in the show. You don't want to put scene just for the sake of it and think that this will get us audience," Shah told OTTplay.

The actress further mentioned, "Audiences have become very smart these days. They have understood which things bewakoof banane ke liye ki hain and which things are sensibly placed as per the need of the script. In terms of reviews, one gets to know which things are being accepted by the audience and which aren't. A few years back, when the OTT wave came, such things were more apparent then. But now I feel things are happening sensibly."
