Shital Bhatia, Co-Founder of Friday Storytellers, opened up about the challenges of turning a book into an edutainment series for viewers in a recent round table discussion. He said, “The most challenging part was to translate the technicality for the viewers to understand, but I’m so glad that Parmeet and the team have managed to pull it off so smoothly. So, yes the biggest challenge was to maintain the engagement and prevent it from becoming boring. A hacker sits in front of his machine all day long which may seem boring at times if shown in the exact same manner and our challenge was to not make it look boring, we wanted to capture the attention of our audience on all aspects.”
