You’re in the long run appearing, whether or not for movies or OTT. I do not see myself having any benefit over others or know something ‘completely different’ from them however OTT does really feel like dwelling for positive.

Q. With actors flocking to the digital medium the platform is crowded greater than ever, do you assume you will have to essentially discover your house?

A. To be sincere, all the things these days is crowded. You simply hold doing what you do. I do not worry being getting misplaced within the crowd. My worry is rather more private. To not have work is my worry. I wish to do good content material, inform tales and work with good individuals and that’s what I will hold doing so long as I can.

Q. If provided a Bollywood movie and an OTT venture collectively, what would you select?

A. I’d select each. Why decide one when you may have so many choices? We’ll handle the dates in the event that they conflict. These are good issues to have as I’ve learnt.

Q. What are your ideas on censorship on OTT?

For somebody who comes from a time when this stuff weren’t considered, I nonetheless really feel that there must be certification and never censorship. It’s going to be nice if there isn’t any censorship. On the finish of the day, I really feel that no matter tales we’ve to inform, we should. So, we solely should determine a means out to inform them.

Q. With the entire controversy round ‘Tandav’ amongst different sequence and a piece of individuals feeling that their non secular sentiments have been damage, FIRs being filed towards the makers and actors, who do you assume must be held accountable in such circumstances?

A. In a various nation like India, you’ll be able to’t make everybody pleased. It is a actuality. On the finish of the day, one should do what makes his/her soul pleased. I’d converse for myself, I’m conscious of what I select, the content material I do and what tales I wish to inform, and so on, so, like I mentioned all of us are right here to inform tales and we should always hold doing that and be delicate and conscious of it. With nice energy, comes nice duty. This platform has given us a lot liberty and we should all use it responsibly.

Q. There was a shift whereby makers are taking a look at casting Bollywood biggies in OTT sequence and movies and are turning in the direction of them to shoulder a venture. Since you have been round within the OTT medium for a while now, what do you consider this shift?

I’ve by no means felt the burnt of it as an ‘outsider’. I’m nonetheless doing and getting the identical quantity of labor I used to be getting beforehand. The truth is, I’m having fun with this time within the Leisure trade. With everybody from movies coming to this platform (OTT) and vice versa, I really feel like we lastly have a standard floor to do nice issues. I take a look at it as a constructive factor. As we speak, a Saif Ali Khan will not be restricted to only movies and I’m not to OTT. That is the enjoyable of it and it is an thrilling time for the actors and the viewers.

Q. How did Tribhanga occur for?

Renuka Tai (Shahne) known as me up and informed me that she had written a script and wished to pitch it to me. She informed me that she thought I’d match the character greatest. She narrated the movie to me and let me sit with the thought and assume over it. It was a personality I’d have by no means envisioned myself enjoying so, only for that I wished to seize the chance with each my arms as a result of nobody most likely would have considered me enjoying a personality like Masha, so, that was a fantastic alternative. Additionally, the truth that the story was so robust, she celebrated imperfection and vulnerability by way of her movie and that is what I resonated with to some extent. Moreover, the character was new and in a brand new realm that I may discover. So, it was a no brainer. I needed to do it.

Q. How was it working with Kajol?

Clearly, to start with, I used to be intimidated. Not as a result of she made me really feel like that, however I’ve grown up watching her movies and she or he was the reigning queen of the 90s and I’m a 90s child. So, these are the movies we have grown up on. So, to arrange your self mentally, that now, I will likely be sharing display screen area together with her and never be her viewers, that was a little bit aunting. However the first day I met her on the units, all of that feeling disappeared. She is simply really easy to work with, her vitality and laughter is so infectious you will by no means not be laughing round her. She’s earnest, sincere and so good at her craft that you just simply wish to see her do her factor. It was implausible!
