Actor Rasika Dugal, who will be seen in online series like Mirzapur, Delhi Police and in a web-film titled Hamid, says the digital space has opened up a new world for actors.

Talking about the digital space, Rasika told IANS, “It has opened up a whole new chapter in our (actors) lives and I am so grateful for it. The format of a web show (or) the series concept is very interesting from a writing point of view. It has given a lot of writers opportunities to explore characters and plots.”

She adds that “the web welcomes content which is path breaking and really pushing boundaries”.

“The kind of scripts I have read for web shows have been outstanding. I have had the opportunity to act in two — Mirzapur, which is a kind of role I have not done before and I am excited about that. It is totally different from Manto. So, from Manto to Mirzapur is one full transformation,” she added.

The 33-year-old actor is looking forward for the series Delhi Police, where she will be seen playing a police officer. “I have also done a web show called Delhi Police. It is about the investigation around the Nirbhaya case. It is also very path-breaking and interesting. So, this space has opened a whole new world for us and I hope it remains as free as it is right now,” she added.

In Hamid, she will be seen playing a widow and a mother to a young boy. The film is set against the backdrop of Kashmir.
