Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, who is debuting as producer in the digital space with web series, Inside Edge, said that there is more freedom in the digital format. “It (digital format) gives you an extra amount of freedom…The language can be used differently. But eventually, it comes back to your aesthetics and sensibilities as you don’t go all out showing everything just because you have got freedom on digital platform,” Farhan told PTI.
But the actor-producer insisted that he did not enter the medium due to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
“…At times, there are people who don’t want to go to theatre to watch films or don’t like watching TV shows, they are from digital generation. So, we want to reach out to those people. I won’t say it’s because of CBFC that the digital thing is happening.”
