Talking about the growing popularity of digital platforms in India, Anangsha said, “Now it (popularity of digital platforms) will grow a lot more. It’s like a wild-fire and it is going to be more popular among the audience. Now, we all are stuck at our homes because of the covid-19 situation, so I think OTT (platforms) is the way to go and it’s the future.”

I feel it's quite a good acknowledgment of my craft and talent.”
