Actress Shreya Chaudhry'says she is?"overwhelmed and yet at peace"with the response to her digital debut series 'Bandish Bandits' and hopes to continue on her quest for good work with humility.
Created by Amritpal Singh Bindra and Anand Tiwari, the 10-part Amazon Prime Video series follows the story of two lovers played by Shreya Chaudhry and Ritwik Bhowmik from different musical backgrounds,torn between legacy and love.Also starring Naseeruddin Shah, Atul Kulkarni, Sheeba Chaddha, Kunal Roy Kapur and Rajesh Tailang, the Amazon Original Series also saw the digital debut of musical trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, who have created the beautiful music for the series.
Shreya says that while she is aware it's an extremely competitive industry, going forward her only concern is the quality of the work she is offered.
"You can feel that insecurity in any profession where you wonder about your growth. It's tricky for an actor because there's no way to wait. I don't think I can say 'Oh I want to do something as big' because at a script level there's only so much I understand.
"I knew the names that were involved with this project but never thought the show would be scaled this way. Maybe with time I'll get a better understanding but right now my insecurities lay in just getting good work and being excited to work,"'she said.
One of the biggest takeaways from 'Bandish Bandits' for the actress was the experience of observing industry veterans perform on set.
