Akshay further revealed that if we evaluate web-series, it must have some sort of authentic information that inspires others to watch it. He said "Although we are at such a stage where makers are just emphasizing on the dark stories (not blaming any film-makers), the portrayal of Mumbai is often established quite dark. While one can show the positive side of this beautiful city skipping vulgarity. Though I might be trolled about these thoughts."
Bardapurkar clearly said that digital platforms need positive content more often and there is a need for it nowadays. He informed us, "I am not going to make any content that mock someone, or which makes fun of someone, can be a funny situation but not to take someone down, one might lose his relevance on the topic to force his agenda but I am not one of them as I would always want to back positive content. Digital Content is not a battleground and even trolling is unnecessary I would say." Planet Marathi Founder Akshay Bardapurkar Talks About the Scope of Marathi Digital Content in India (Watch Video).
