Shriyam Bhagnani made her OTT debut with City of Dreams season 2 in which she played the role of Tanya. The actor has been lauded for her performance in the series all thanks to her layered character. During an exclusive interaction with OTTPlay, Shriyam revealed that she was always up to mark her presence on OTT platforms and the Disney+ Hotstar series is definitely a great opportunity. 

Shriyam exclusively told us, "Oh, definitely, I have grown up watching also shows from the West. Earlier, Netflix and Amazon, all these platforms, were not there. But they always had these smaller formats like sitcoms or series where things do not go on for a long time. I always enjoyed watching those because of the completion of it."

The actor added, "The moment OTT started catching up I think around three or four years ago, I was thrilled. I was thrilled to see the kind of work that was happening. Eijaz Khan said in an interview that in films things are faster like plot points are faster. But in a series which is laid out, as an actor, you have more time to play with your part."

Interestingly, Shriyam also laid out her top favourite shows and praised each one of them while recommending them to our readers.

Read on to know about it in detail:

City of Dreams
7.8OTTplay Rating
"I would say number one City of Dreams season one and two. So, I just finished watching the day before yesterday and I think it is phenomenal. I've actually seen the first part five times waited for the second event to catch up again. It's a very well written show, Nagesh Kukunoor and Rohit Banawlikar have outdone themselves." Talking about the plot of the series, it's about a father and a daughter at loggerheads while seeking power in politics. Ameya Gaikwad (Atul Kulkarni) loses everything to his daughter Poornima (Priya Bapat). When her popularity grows, her father's desperation to stop her from reigning overshadows him completely.

"Asur is one of the best shows that we have. I was blown away by it the way Arshad Warsi has worked in it. I'm really waiting for the second season." Talking about the series, it's a unique crime thriller that pits two opposing worlds - forensic science and the deep mysticism of ancient Indian Mythology. The unusual concept caught the eyes of the viewers and made the netizens do the talking. The series has been renewed for the second season making fans more impatient.
Bandish Bandits
9.2OTTplay Rating
"Anand Tiwari's vision is just legendary and the way he got the music like in Indian OTT, I've not seen that before. I liked the way the entire show was made with Naseeruddin Shah and Atul Kulkarni along with Rithwik Bhowmik and Shreya Chaudhary both did an amazing job. I've seen that also twice because it's just such a good series and again I can't wait for season two." Bandish Bandits is about Radhe, a prodigy from a classical music background and Tamanna, a pop sensation on the rise. Their worlds collide and they fall in love with each other. However, they are between helping Tamanna achieve stardom and Radhe staying true to his own music and his family’s legacy.
Made in Heaven
8.6OTTplay Rating
"Made in Heaven again is a very well made show and has taken Indian OTT to a level up." The series is about Tara and Karan, two wedding planners who lead a company of the same name. But the series unfolds the dark side of the elite families from patriarchy, dowry, virginity tests and other traditions which are the root of many causes.
The Family Man
9.2OTTplay Rating
"How can I forget The Family Man?!" The edgy drama series has become the favourite of many due to various reasons. Mainly is the content-driven plot led by Manoj Bajpayee who is leading dual lives. He is a middle-class man who works for a special wing at National Investigation Agency and hunts down the enemies of the nation. In this way, he has to protect his family from his secrets as well as the impact of his job. The show renewed for the second season and even that received an amazing response owing to the stupendous star cast including Samantha Akkineni.
