I can play my age, I can play 10-12 years younger still, so I’m just Having fun. As long as people are convinced that I am that role, whether at 35 or 45, I would like to do both. You just have to take care of yourself so you can go through the ages that you play. I would like to stick to that window. Bollywood will still cast actors who are in their 50s versus girls who are in their 20s and they won’t even cast an older man and a younger girl, they will make them look like a couple. In that environment, what does it matter? ” Also read – #BLRecommends – Miss trip?

When asked if OTT has given actors more freedom now, he said: “Sure. 10-12 years ago I was trying to get Bollywood away from the formula and I managed to make some movies that I did. That was because multiplexes were coming. , so for a short period of time there was a short window where I could produce movies like Manorama, Dev D and Hey Lucky and publish them. Even multiplexes are physical entities, there is only a limited number that you can. mainstream they took care of them and again I couldn’t get movies like Manorama, Ek Chalis out again. Now OTT platforms have emerged, there is more exhibition space. It’s different from multiplexes. The digital space is limitless. While digital platforms have to cater to the general audience to get subscribers, which is fair enough, they can also afford to cater to the non-traditional audience. An grown up with the internet, they are more knowledgeable. These kids aren’t buying Bollywood that easy because they can see how jaded it is to have been dragging a formula for 70-80 years. He no longer speaks to them. We no longer live in that same world. Bollywood is now catching up to OTT. “
