Pankaj Tripathi is all geared up with Srijit Mukherji’s Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga. The film that also features Sayani Gupta and Neeraj Kabi will be released on June 24. Pankaj, who is also gearing up for the third season of Mirzapur, talked exclusively to OTTPlay about the changing scene in Bollywood.

While talking about how Bollywood is breaking the stereotype of heroes and heroines, Pankaj said that the introduction of OTT in the entertainment scene has helped bring the change. “With OTT, certain things have changed. In fact, a lot of changes took place after OTT came into the picture,” he said adding, “Prakriti ka niyam hai badlav. Change is inevitable in Nature. Incidentally, this change has happened in my time. People often associate this change with me. They say that the change happened in my time or the change happened due to me. But it is the time that brings change and not us.”

When asked about how his journey in Bollywood was impacted by this change, he said, “Main pehle akele set pe jatatha. Ab do char log rahte hai saath mein. Mera ek personal makeup van rahta hai. Aur kuch nehi badla hai. I am the same person. (Earlier, I used to go alone to shoot. Now a few people go with me. Now I also have a makeup van of my own). Earlier I did not have any clue where to sit. I used to find my chair to sit on. Now a vanity van waits for me. Nothing else has changed. I am the same person as I used to be.”
