"I never felt it was a web-series. Earlier I didn't know much about the space and didn't want to do it. I'm happy with films, but this ('Bang Baaja Baaraat') is a different kind of film for me," said Ali of his experience.

"We have actually shot it like a film and divided it into five parts as nowadays people can't sit online for too long. That was the idea, and I think it's a very good platform," he added.

'Bang Baaja Baaraat' is being presented by Y- Films, a division of Yash Raj Films (YRF). Directed by Anand Tiwari, it also stars Rajit Kapur, Neil Bhoopalam and debutante Angira Dhar.

About working with the production house, Ali said, "I'm very blessed. And it was one of the reasons why I got involved with the project."

Actors such as Radhika Apte, Manoj Bajpayee and Raveena Tandon have featured in short films on the web in the recent past

.Ali admits that the web space is new for him as an actor, but said that it has been 'one of the best experiences of my life'.
