The OTT space saw many prominent and established actors embark upon a new chapter in their lives, making their digital debuts after a stellar career on the silver screen. Be it Sushmita Sen in Arya or Madhuri Dixit in The Fame Game or Raveena Tandon in Aranyak, many beloved actors made their foray into the world of OTT in recent times, putting up formidable performances each time. At the OTTplay Awards and Conclave 2022, which honours the best of films and shows on OTT, Raveena won the award for Best Actor Female in Series (Popular) for her role in Aranyak.
The award was presented by Tahira Kashyap Khurrana and Jitendra Sharma. When Raveena came to accept the award, presenter Tahira had a ‘fangirl’ moment, as she announced the actress to be her ‘Woman Crush’ and fawned over Raveena. The presenter also spoke of how OTT had given life to so many talents, and added that she was in awe to see so many faces at the award.
Cradling the trophy in her arms, Raveena said “Thank you HT OTTplay awards for this lovely night of bringing everyone, pan India, which we truly call our Indian cinema. All the stalwarts from our Indian industries, all over different states are here this evening under one roof. And that gives me immense pleasure.
I remember we were doing promos, promotional evenings and press conferences for a film called KGF 2. Four of us from different industries were there. There was Yash, Sanju(Sanjay Dutt), me and Prashanth(Neel). So there was Telugu, there was Kannada cinema and Mumbai cinema together. And believe me, everytime the press asked us how it was to be from different industries and still be so integrated under one roof. We all said that it was high time and a dream for all the industries to come together. The more we are together, the more powerful a force we will be. I see that power unfolding here tonight”, she said.
Meanwhile, the OTTplay Awards and Conclave 2022 took place in Mumbai on September 10. The awards can be watched on OTTplay’s official Youtube channel.
