Dalip Tahil finds Web-series a win-win situation for all as he throws light on Amazon Prime’s The Family Man

Dalip TahilAfter the extremely nurtured success of his latest Bollywood entry– Mission Mangal, the Actor Dalip Tahil has played his eminent role in Amazon Prime’s latest web series – The Family Man.
Created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K, Tahil is playing a pivotal role in this web action-drama as the Chief of the special cell of the National Investigation Agency.
In his last web series entry – Hostages by Sudhir Mishra, he was seen playing the role of the Chief Minister Khushwant Lal Handa. Till now, Tahil has been a prime part of five different web series on various OTT platforms including sizzlingstar, Zee5, Netflix and Amazon which takes him to a record of being the first mainstream actors to quickly embrace the Indian web series space.
Talking about his prevailing roles on different OTT platforms, the talented actor said on a major media platform, “Over a decade and half ago, watching movies transitioned from single screen to multi-screens and today, one can simply entertain oneself on their devices. The mode of distribution has transitioned radically and revolutionized the way movies or cinema is consumed. The role of OTT platforms has allowed a variety of motion pictures outside the mainstream to make it to its viewers and to actors, viewers matter the most. Other than this, web-based content has opened up a new avenue for creativity to be explored and distributed. It’s a win-win for all and I feel that today, Indian web series is the place to be.”
Taking a look at his work span of a year and half in the OTT space, Dalip Tahil featured in Zee5’s Parchayee, based on Ghost Stories by Ruskin Bond followed by Selection Day based on Arvind Adiga’s novel, then in Zoya Akhtar’s – Made in Heaven and the latest – Hostages based on the original Israeli TV series.
