In his 14-year-long career as an actor, Sikandar Kher is perhaps in his best professional phase, receiving much appreciation from critics and audience alike for his multiple projects, the latest being Monica, O My Darling.

In a conversation with OTTplay, the actor shares how OTT platforms and the variety of content that is being celebrated globally has changed the lives of many actors like him.

"I think that it is the best phase of our careers, not just for me, but for everyone, including technicians. This is because of OTT and the growing opportunities that come with it. Of course, I am glad that content is being celebrated at a big level, beyond the box office, because of OTT release. At the end of the day, as an artiste, I want to know what the audience feels about my performance. And I am happy that it is happening now," said Sikander. 

In the film Monica, O My Darling, Sikandar plays the son of a rich man who has to undergo several things to save himself from a particular situation.

Sikander began his acting career in 2008 with the film Woodstock Villa, but saw a lot of struggle, despite being the son of veteran actors Kirron Kher and Anupam Kher. However, his performances were appreciated by critics in films like Tere Bin Laden 2, Romeo Akbar Walter, Sooryavanshi and in the web series Aarya.

The actor has multiple films and web series in the pipeline. Sikandar will appear in Dukaan, Chidya Udd, and the third season of the Sushmita Sen-starrer web series, Aarya. His Hollywood film, titled Monkey Man, in which he shares screen space with Dev Patel is also set to release soon.

Monica, O My Darling, directed by Vasan Bala, is the adaptation of the Japanese novel Burutasu No Shinzou. It also stars Rajkummar Rao, Huma Qureshi and Radhika Apte, and is streaming on Netflix.
