Share post:


OTT platforms have seen a surge in teen drama shows, which cater to the tastes and aspirations of young adults, delving into the complexities of adolescence and tackling themes such as friendship, love, identity and societal pressures.
From coming-of-age stories set in high schools to narratives exploring issues confronted by teenagers, these dramas offer a diverse range of perspectives and characters.
Anushka Sen, who plays the role of Asmara in the recently released series ‘Dil Dosti Dilemma’, said how teen dramas work because they have a sense of relatability.
Sen told IANS: “After watching teen dramas, sometimes you feel what you are going through is something that is normal. You can find relatable characters. She added how her character Asmara is amazing, good at heart, confused but unique. “When I was portraying her, there were some things I was disagreeing as Anushka, but I had to understand that she is just a character.”
The romantic teen drama ‘Campus Beats’, which has seen three successful seasons, stars Shruti Sinha and Shantanu Maheshwari in the lead roles.
The show captures the joys, struggles, passion, friendship, love and intense competition among student factions.
It follows the journey of two groups at the Mumbai University of Movement and Dance, also known as the University of M.A.D.
OTT viewers have also recently seen a coming-of-age narrative set in an all- girls’ school titled ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’, (IANS)
