Pratik Gandhi on OTT censorship
When Pratik Gandhi was asked if OTT content needs censorship, the actor told us, "Well, it is a debatable question and I don't know how much censorship can help. But I think the biggest censorship we need is in the audiences' mind. Through this show (Crimes Aaj Kal 2), we want to communicate that the only thing that can help society keep away from crimes is self-control. Self-control can come in any individual through upbringing."
Pratik further mentioned, "You can't control the world around you, but what you can control is yourself and your mind. Because that is the only thing in your control. Rather than saying and controlling everything around you, if one controls his/her brain, things will be sorted. You can only control your emotions. Baaki kuch nahi ho sakta hai isme. Aap hi ko pata hai ki aapko kis cheez se gussa aata hain. So, aap hi usko control kar paoge."

"There is a lot of excitement around me and in working with me. So, it is the best phase of an actor's life," he said, while signing off.
