After hitting a rough patch with a string of failures in Bollywood including Rangoon, Chef, Kaalakaandi and Baazaar, Saif Ali Khan's career got a breath of fresh air with Sacred Games, which brought him back into the action. He is now looking forward to another digital outing with the web show, Tandav.
Pankaj Tripathi was a phenomenon waiting to happen, given his abundant talent. Only, Bollywood didn't quite have the roles after he made his mark with that small but impressive outing in Gangs Of Wasseypur. Rather, his real turnaround happened on OTT, as the dreaded gangster Kaleen Bhaiyya in the web series Mirzapur, and Sacred Games, where he played the power-hungry Guruji. The acclaim to his OTT sojourns have opened up doors across platforms.
After initially successful years, Bobby Deol hit a rough stretch with his silver jubilee run. He started his second innings with much-hyped multistarrers like Race 3 and Housefull 4, but these films did not help his career. Now, he has found a resounding return thanks to his starring role in the OTT series, Aashram. He was also the star of the Shah Rukh Khan-produced digital film, Class Of '83.
In his Bollywood journey, Jaideep Ahlawat featured in films like Rockstar, Gangs Of Wasseypur, Raees and Raazi, but failed to get the acclaim and fame that came his way when he essayed the police office in Paatal Lok.
Earlier this year, Amit Sadh set a mini record in the OTT world, with as many as three releases on the same day. He had pivotal roles in the digitally-released films Shakuntala Devi and Yaara, and he also starred in the web series Avrodh: The Siege Within. He had made a mark with his role of a cop over two seasons of Breathe.
