Disney+ Hotstar new web series The Empire is based on the chronicles of the Mughal Empire and is garnering all the attention from film lovers. Starting from its larger than life characters to the costumes that fit the aesthetics and the whole look and feel of the series, everything is making fans excited and curious.

As The Empire’s release date is almost here, the stunning cast Drashti Dhami, Dino Morea and Kunal Kapoor opened up about how they prepared themselves for their respective roles in SpotboyE’s Just Binge Sessions. Drashti is a popular face in the small screen and she spoke about her transition from small screen to OTT.

Looks like Drashti enjoyed her journey thoroughly even though she felt like the OTT world was ‘a little slow’ in comparison with the Telly world in the beginning wherein one has to dedicate 12-16 hours a day for shooting. She went ahead and said that the lifestyle she followed when she was shooting for TV was completely different and used to the small screen pattern of work, she found shooting for OTT very relaxing. She further added that for TV, she gets ready in 20 minutes for a shoot and takes only around 5 minutes to remember her lines.

While shooting for OTT, she said everything seemed so relaxed and she had time to sit back and do things at her own pace. But then she had to completely change her body language to fit into the platform.
