Speaking to TellyChakkar, Bhavya expressed his interest in working on the OTT platform. He said that he has even auditioned for two to three projects however it did not turn out well and he ended up rejecting them. Bhavya said that even if he takes up a project on the OTT platform, it has to be something substantial.
