Sonam Khan is in awe of the digital medium and how it is focused on a character-driven system rather than a star-driven one.

Sonam Khan was one of the most sought-after female actors in the 1990s, having appeared in iconic films such as Tridev, Ajooba, and Vishwatma, before retiring from the film profession 15 years ago. She left India to spend more time with her family in Switzerland. The actor professes a desire to sign an OTT project as she considers making a comeback shortly.

“I am not interested in doing movies,” she told Hindustan Times, adding, “I really want to do something on OTT because with the web, there is no hero or heroine, and it’s just the characters without which the story cannot move. Also, I find OTT platforms more inclusive, and the stories are age appropriate, which is not always the case with Bollywood films.”

Sonam praises the streaming platforms for not only the options and variety they provide, but also for how they conceive tales and characters. She can’t wait to face the camera again.

“OTT gives you that chance to be yourself. In whatever content I have watched so far, I see women coming up the way they are. Manisha Koirala in Heeramandi is amazing and beautiful, and she commands the screen. That, I find so appealing. There are many other stars in the show, but she owns the domain, and only an OTT project with so much of depth will offer you that scope. In all shows, there are several characters. and everyone get their own space, which they own perfectly,” she added.

The actor attributes the growth of the web space as a key factor that reignited her passion for a career in showbiz, sparking a renewed desire to showcase her acting prowess. Despite this resurgence, she is hesitant to label her re-entry into the industry as a comeback.

“I feel like I am starting all over again as a newcomer. So, I am still waiting to find a script and a story, which I feel is good enough for my re-entry as a newcomer and something that would appeal to my sensibilities. I am not questioning the people who have offered me some roles, but they didn’t resonate with my sensibilities,” she concludes.
