    Bollywood filmmaker Goldie Behl is making his digital debut with the upcoming web series Rejctx. Talking about the same, Goldie said in an exclusive interview with IANS that it feels youngsters these days are more affected by social media and porn addiction than drugs because they are obsessed with the virtual world.

    The producer of the show, Goldie Behl said: "Today's millennials are dealing with problems that are more internal than before. Youngsters today are brought up in a world where the internet is a part of their life, as normally as the mobile phone was when we were teenagers. These days, kids are less judgmental when it comes to things such as sexual orientation, job profile or friendship. The problems are quite different these days. For instance, they are more affected by social media and porn than drug addiction!"

    Goldie added: "In the show I am not trying to give a lecture, but just depicting the reality. My son will be 14 next month and I am the father of a teenager. I am well-versed with their world," said the 53-year-old producer. Rejctx is a musical thriller set in an international college campus in Singapore and the story revolves around seven students.

    "Since it is a web show and most of the youngsters are newcomers, I chose actors keeping the relatability factor in mind. That is one of the reasons I cast Kubbra. She is a brilliant actress and, at the same time, the audience watching digital shows relates to her. She is a star of the digital entertainment space and has a huge credibility in the web world. Her acting style is very contemporary and it caters to a large audience. So, casting her was a way to set the tempo of the show right," added the filmmaker.

    On his storytelling experience in the digital space for the first time, he said: "It was great that my thought process and that of the ZEE5 team was on the same wavelength. I have worked in films and on TV, and I feel the web series is actually a hybrid of the two formats. It was, therefore, easy for me to bring the magnitude of cinema (into the show). Yet, I was aware that if the story does not engage the audience, they will go away -- as it happens on TV."

    "I think I am more into larger-than-life stories, and my thought process is maverick. So, I find the web platform interesting now," shared the filmmaker, who recently went through a tough time on the personal front after his wife, actress Sonali Bendre, was diagnosed with cancer.

    "I have to say that the positive vibes we got from all our friends, family and well-wishers helped us to fight the battle, one day at a time. I was 16 years old when my father passed away and I have seen death from a close quarter at a very young age," he said.
