While Bollywood and television industry is still suffering in the hands of the censor board, web series, on the other hand, are going all out experimenting with everything to get a hang of what audience might like.

Keeping the conservative thoughts and the CBFC tantrums off track, the web series-makers are coming with content that might offend some but will be loved by many. Bidding adieu to the daily soap operas and ‘saas-bahu’ drama, the OTT platforms are creating and curating content that millennials can easily relate to.
