TV Heartthrob Rithvik Dhanjani is rocking in his digital debut ALTBalaji’s Galti Se Mis-Tech. He is paired opposite Anita Hassananadani in this modern couple love story. In an exclusive tête-à-tête with TheDigitalHash.com, Rithvik talks about his series, binge watching and how he handles social media comments.
What made Galti Se Mis-tech appealing to you?
It is the short episode of the series which is really appealing. The script is tight and funny. It was challenging, yet very exciting because in a matter of less than 5 minutes we had to convey so much. Plus, it (the platform) is ALTBalaji, so its home (for me). There are some instances, which will be coming up in the future episodes, which are very ‘me’.
It was a great learning experience. All in all, we had a great team of writers and directors. We were all young people trying to create something good together.
Based on your working on this web series, do you want to be a ‘digital only actor’?
I am an actor. I never entered the industry thinking about what medium I will be associated with. Obviously doing a bigger project (than the previous one) is on everybody’s mind. TV also has the power to change the way we look at stories. But I don’t want to be restricted by the medium.
Do you consume digital content yourself? Which is the last show you binge-watched?
I binge watch a lot. On ALTBalaji, I binge-watched Bose: Dead/Alive and The Test Case. I recently finished Amazon Prime Original Laakhon Mein Ek, it is a beautiful story. I also streamed Vicky Kaushal’s Love Per Square Foot on Netflix. The content on the web is outrageously amazing.
You are immensely active on social media, how do you handle trolls and negative comments?
I am a positive person, I hate negativity. I just don’t read them (negative comments).
