Manoj Bajpayee on OTT vs theatre debate 

Debates about movie theatres and OTT platforms are quite common these days. There are people who prefer one over the other but that's not the case with seasoned actor Manoj Bajpayee. Although OTT platforms gave Manoj a stage to show his true talent but he believes that both the mediums are equally important. He said, "Creative people should not have favourites because you are supposed to work on whatever medium that you are working for. You have to just look for good work that excites and challenges you."

Sharing the example of her recent films, Manoj said, "So many films that have come on OTT have done well. ‘Bhonsle’ or ‘Silence’ were meant for theatre release. OTT came as a blessing and we can put these films on OTT for people to see. Theatres will open again. The more the avenues, the better the chances for all of us. More talent will be consumed and benefit from it."

He concluded his statement by saying, “A good script, good character and good director, an honest intent and a character I feel I can play differently, somewhere I can challenge it and do it differently. These are things I still look for after 26 years of my career."
