“But when I came to OTT I made something bigger, it’s my biggest project as yet. So I didn’t have to adapt to the digital medium, this will be like watching a film.
“So there is no holding back or trying to do something different for OTT.”
“I made 8 episodes for this, and it’s so demanding, I am constantly working on the script.
“You have to spend more hours than you do films but all of us are enjoying ourselves a lot. This one is very special…”
