South actor Tamannaah Bhatia feels choosing a role in a thriller can always be an advantage for an actor because the genre has a high binge quotient.
This year, Tamannaah made her digital debut in April with the Telugu web series “11th Hour”, a crime thriller that also features Adith Arun and Vamsi Krishna.
In May, she returned to OTT space again with the Tamil whodunit drama “November Story” alongside Pasupathy, GM Kumar, Aruldass and Vivek Prasanna.
“A thriller, if done well, has the ability to let you binge-watch. Now that is essentially what everybody who makes a show wants you to do. So, when you choose a genre like a thriller, if it is done well, it has a high potential of reaching that goal of being a binge-watchable show,” she says.
“11th Hour” streams on Aha while “November Story” is on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
Tamannaah Bhatia plays an ethical hacker in the upcoming series “November Story”. The actress says the two things she was looking for on the digital platform were relatable scripts and a strong character.
“The two things that I was looking for in a web series were a relatable script and a strong character that would pique audience interest,” Tamannaah said.
Speaking about her experience of working with debutant director Ram Subramanian, the actor added: “When Ram Subramanian approached me with the script of November Story, not only did it align with these two parameters, but the holistic vision he embodied for a series as complex as this, was extremely admirable. His well-rounded vision along with his impressive storytelling skills got me to sign November Story.”
