The space of web streaming services is fast growing in popularity in India. Players like Amazon Prime, Hotstar and Netflix are already extremely popular with the younger audience who are always hooked onto the internet. We also have the likes of Zee 5, Sun NXT making inroads into this space. MX Player is the latest prominent name making some noise in this space with their offering of original content on the internet. Their special interview series with prominent South film stars is already a hit. Hosted by VJ Bhavna, celebrities like Madhavan, Arvind Swami and Tamannaah have already appeared on the show.
In her chat, Tamannaah had some great words to say about Dhanush in one of the segments. “Dhanush was the first star to encourage me by saying that I'll make it big in films when we worked together in Padikathavan. He is someone who has turned his slim, boy next door appearance into his strength. When I work with him, I get confused whether he is saying his lines or just talking casually. He can be that candid and realistic”, added ‘Tammu’.
Another noteworthy original content on MX Player is the youthful rom-com web series Lots of Love (LOL) which is streaming in both Tamil and Telugu. This series (with a total of 8 episodes) has been shot in a colourful manner and also has some peppy songs in true filmy style. Noted Tamil heroine Srushti Dange is also a part of this series which features mostly fresh actors, and is directed by J Laxman Kumar and produced by Dinesh Narasimhan.
