The internet has boosted unapologetic content from the unheard and unseen talents, thus promoting a refreshing candour of the medium. As television and films have to narrow the boldness of the content to suit the sensibilities of the audience, the internet is weaving stories that outreach the bandwidth of television and films by catering to the audience who shore up for the same.

Shashanka Ghosh whose latest release Veere Di Wedding starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania smashed box office records is all set to direct a sex comedy for a web series. Despite the success of Veere Di Wedding, the director has chosen a web series over a film. The director will bring another dysfunctional story on the web which will be launched on the Times Group's OTT platform. 

Commenting about foraying into the medium with the upcoming release of his web series, Shashanka Ghosh said to a leading tabloid, "I have said it earlier and I will say it now, I am not looking out to make art. I want to make quality entertainment which is relatable and absorbing. When this script came to me, I could visualise the story my way. I understood the vision for this story and hence I agreed to come onboard. The medium does not make a difference, for me the story does a trick."

Shashanka Ghosh's Veere Di Wedding was equally applauded and criticized, especially for depicting the masturbation scene in the film. However, his return to direct a sex comedy for the web series has stirred enough curiosity to see his vision on the subject for a different medium.
