Another Indian web series that made news for standing tall in the global IMDB ratings is Broken but beautiful, Season 3, introducing debutante Priyanka Ghose's fine work with powerhouse actor Sidharth Shukla & newbie Sonia Rathee.
The show that aired last month has been consistently receiving positive reviews & ranked at a whopping 40th position in the Internet movie database last week, a website that provides information about millions of shows & movies made worldwide & also of their cast & crew, that rank which influences the audience viewership.
Former associate director of hit series Aarya, starring Sushmita Sen, Priyanka Ghose is still coming to terms with the success of her maiden directorial outing. She shares, ''It's a bit overwhelming, to be honest. When you are working on the content yourself, you are so close to it that you tend to lose objectivity over how good or bad it is. I kept getting reassured by Sid or other actors or even my HoDs that it was coming together well, so yes I did have an inkling of something good would come out of it but the way it's being received by the audience is beyond what I had expected. I don't think for once I had the time to mull over any decision that I would regret, I constantly just kept moving forward telling myself, if this doesn't work then what's the best alternative you can think of. Throughout the entire process, I could either keep questioning my choices or I could keep coming up with solutions - I chose the latter. I am so grateful that I had Sidharth & Sonia all the other actors & my entire team on this journey with me & I feel blessed that my first web series is doing so well & I hope the ones who still haven't seen it, will watch it & like it.''
For a show that was entirely shot in the middle of a pandemic & to break the clutter online, Priyanka shares she wasn't prepared enough for what was about to come. She says, ''It's just a bummer when your first success is being conveyed to you within the confines of your home through social media updates & not being able to physically celebrate it with my team, but it's so heartwarming to read the reviews that seem to take notice of a debutant director, praising my work & the fans showering me with their love on social media. Some of the best compliments are from the fans who are writing to me on social media. I was bowled over when critics took my name alongside the protagonists.''
