Pankaj Tripathi, who made headlines by playing the role of Akhandananda Tripathi alias Kal Vaiyar in ‘Mirzapur 2’, believes that the OTT platform has played a helpful role in his success. In an interview, he said, “OTT has contributed a lot to my career. I don’t have a cinema hall in my village. There is a cinema hall 226 km away from there, so it is not possible for the villagers to go that far to watch a movie. He also watches shows. ‘
“People call me by my character wherever I go,” Pankaj added. Even at the airport, CISF people smile at me and call me by my character’s name. That has changed a lot. The story is important to me, not the platform. I don’t care where my work will be shown. I worked on TV before the movie. I see no difference. The best thing about OTT is that you get a lot of time to go into the depths of the character here, not only the actors but also the writers and producers get a lot of time. This opportunity is less in cinema. “
In an earlier interview, Pankaj said, “First I had to find a job. Now the job is looking for me. Give me a job. Now I got the script that will be made in the second half of 2021.”
