Actor Sohum Shah, who has been receiving a lot of positive response for his recently released streaming show ‘Dahaad’, has explained the reason behind the audio-visual content’s wide reach and why it appeals to a lot of people compared to other art forms like painting, music or photography.
Talking to IANS, the actor said: “Kahaniyaan toh har kisiko sunane ka shauk hi hota hai na (Everyone loves good stories). The kids are also told bed time stories. Stories engage the minds of the audience and keep them on the edge, not like other artforms don’t do but stories connect with the mass audience on a very basic level.”
In the series, Sohum essays the role of a cop from a small town who has earlier faced charges of corruption.
He further mentioned: “Modern art for instance often requires you to be equipped with a certain kind of understanding and perception about that artform, the colours and themes, but a good story can be easily grasped by the audience of all kinds, that’s the reason I feel films have a very big audience base.”
‘Dahaad’ is streaming on Prime Video.
