Actor Ritwik Bhowmik is happy that he made his acting debut in the digital space and says he could not ask for a better launchpad than the recently-released musical romance web series, Bandish Bandits. Traditionally, most actors prefer a big screen debut, but Ritwik the web-space has opened up a whole new wave of content creation. "I remember as a child, I used to listen to this story of a man who had a duck that gave golden eggs and we all know how that story ends. Bandish Bandits: Internet Just Can’t Have Enough Of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s Melodious Music

He added: "There is this whole new wave of content creation and consumption through online platforms, so I just couldn't have asked for anything better.
