Actor Kritika Kamra has done plenty of television shows and is excited to feature in a web series now. Though she’s trying out the new medium, yet the actor feels that it will take some time for any platform to come closer to television.

“I don’t see web becoming bigger than television anytime soon. Currently, web has a niche audience but the small screen has a wider reach than the films. So, it will take a lot of time for the two entertainment portals to be at par with each other,” she says. However she chose to remain discreet about her web projects. The actor, who was last seen in newsroom drama, Reporters, is all praise for the Internet.

“I am very excited about this whole new phase. It will take some time to find out what will work out on the web. Right now, the beauty of this medium is such that everyone can come up with a story and showcase it there. All you need to do is shoot it and put it there. There is no censorship but for it to become more streamlined, it will take some time,” she says.
