‘A good script is what matters, not the medium of release’ believes Manoj Bajpayee who has been seen playing the lead role in the Netflix soap The Family Man season 2. He says one just has to look for good work and not be bothered by the medium of release. The infamous actor’s criteria for picking scripts has always been the same.
“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,” he said while talking to IANS.
The actor known for his exceptional acting and impeccable dialogue delivery, Manoj Bajpayee has worked in films as well as OTT and says he would never pick a favourite medium when it comes to showcasing his work.
“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,” the actor said while citing examples of his recent films and series that dropped digitally.
“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 avenues, the better the chances for all of us. More talent will be consumed and benefit from it,” he added.
