With the country been thrust into lockdown for almost three quarters of 2020, OTT platforms saw an unprecedented boom, with web series and web films capturing the imagination of our country like never before. That being said, with creators taking full advantage of the lack of other entertainment options for a major part of 2020 and so much content making its way onto streaming services, only a handful of movies and shows on the web truly stood out, and the performances in them had a key role to play toward their success. So, today, as a part of our #BLBestof2020 special, we are here to talk about the Best Actress in a web series/web film for which we have shortlisted six of who we feel are the best candidates, and it's up to you to vote and tell us who trumps the competition among them...
The first, proper desktop-themed project shot in India was made all the more special by a.) how it was shot entirely during lockdown and weaved a thrilling narrative by tapping into the paranoia of the coronavirus pandemic, and b.) Shweta Tripathi's performance, which was not only the icing on the cake, but also was head and shoulders above the remaining actors despite them doing a perfectly fine job, only going to show how much she merged with her character.
Mona Singh — Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain 3
Mona Singh has nailed the part of the other woman in Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain, and in the second season, she was all fire and brimstone as a lady who has finally decided to move on from a man (played equally well by Ronit Roy), refusing to wholeheartedly commit to her.
Gurdeep Kohli — Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain 3 VIDEO
Gurdeep Kohli matched Mona step-for-step as Ronit's ex-wife, who, too, is done with him and now wants to live life on her terms, exploring new horizons with someone who can truly care for her.
Shedding her TV soap image, Jennifer Winget exhibited the true depths of her talent in a role that nobody could've imagined her in without actually witnessing her performance.
Rasika Dugal — Mirzapur 2
Pankaj Tripathi aka Kaleen Bhaiyya told BollywoodLife on record that Rasika Dugal aka Been Tripathi, who plays his wife in the super hit Mirzapur, is his favourite character from the show, and coming from him, that's all you need to know about how well the latter's deceptive yet emotional performance has resonated with viewers.
Aaditi Pohankar — Aashram
Bobby Deol has been the rediscovery of 2020 (only for those not well-versed with his erstwhile work), then Aaditi Pohankar is the find of the year, breathing soul and vulnerability into a web show where everybody else is trying to stab each other in the back.
