MUMBAI: Eros Now, leading over-the-top (OTT) South Asian entertainment platform owned by Eros International Plc, a leading global company in the Indian film entertainment, wins the ‘Best Web Series’ award for their first original web series - Side Hero by The Digital Hash, a digital portal exclusively covering Web Entertainment. The comedy series added another feather to its cap with lead actor Kunaal Roy Kapur bagging the ‘Best Actor’ award for his performance in the web-series.
The Digital Hash recognizes superlative web content every month under their property “Streaming Awards” which honours the best talent in the realm of digital entertainment. The eight episodes series that released in September garnered much praise for its humorous take on Kunaal’s life, juggling between the endeavour to get a lead role but always ending up being the ‘Side Hero’. Side Hero has enjoyed tremendous popularity with a rating of 8.6 (on IMDB) as well as the number one position on Top Hindi Movies and Shows section within a week of its release on IMDB over others like the recently released movies during the same period such as Sui Dhaaga.
Commenting on the award for the web series, Ridhima Lulla, Chief Content Officer, Eros Group said, “It is a great honour to be recognized for our very first original web series and I am grateful to The Digital Hash and the audience for appreciating our work. Comedy is one of the most watched genres across formats and we are happy our fresh take on humour has been loved by audiences. We are now looking forward to the launch of Season 2 of the series.”*
