OTT has emerged as a force to reckon with this year, bolstered by the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on the entertainment industry. That aside too, right from its origin, OTT has been dishing out spectacular content and it just continued doing so in 2020.
Therefore, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Filmfare has introduced the first edition of OTT Awards. Web series like Paatal Lok, Panchayat and many more, and web movies like Raat Akeli Hai have floored us this year. With them, actors like Seema Pahwa, Jaideep Ahlawat, Jitendra Kumar and others have been absolutely brilliant.
The first edition of Filmfare OTT Awards is considering content released between August 01, 2019 and July 31, 2020. Seema Pahwa, Amruta Khanvilkar, Tisca Chopra, Zareen Khan, Nora Fatehi, Hansal Mehta and others were seen walking down the red carpet at the Awards held in Mumbai.
