Betaal dropped on Netflix a few days ago. Starring Viineet Kumar Singh, Aahana Kumra, Jitendra Joshi and Suchitra Pillai, the horror web series is about a curse and a forbidden tunnel. The tunned just can’t be opened. Now, the makers have come up with a behind the screens video in which they show how the gory pretas were created. In the video, Aahana Kumra also reveals that she was shocked to see so much gore and blood on the sets.
Watch the BTS video below:
In an interview to us, Aahana spoke about the web platform. She said, “The web platform is a very inclusive platform. When I used to go for TV auditions, they used to always tell me that you don’t look like a conventional Indian bahurani. I used to get rejected for a lot of TV serials also. I didn’t get work in TV as well.”
She added, “Now, I say this with a lot of pride that because of web series, the representation of women in films is more. That’s because there have been so many good stories of women being written. If you saw Delhi Crime, Shefali Shah played the main role and a fantastic one at that. So many actresses I look up to are getting roles in web shows. I see so many women stories. I get bored of shows that have only men. I can’t watch them. I like watching women and their stories.”
She also spoke about the challenges she faced. She revealed, “In films, I was told that I don’t look heroine material. I heard that from a lot of people and felt very dejected. Neither did I know anyone, nor did I attend any parties. I used to tell people to give me a chance to audition but I didn’t even get that. So it’s very difficult, especially for women, to get the part that you want to do.”
