Mumbai: Acclaimed actor Pankaj Tripathi attributes his rise to the internet, from his roles as the cheeky lawyer Madhav Mishra in “Criminal Justice” to the power-hungry Godman Guruji in “Sacred Games.”
Pankaj said: “If there was no OTT, then there would have been a fight still going on with me. I wouldn’t have got any reach. OTT only gave me space because there is importance of content and stories and not actors that much.”
He credits his popularity to the web space.
“Whatever I am, it is because of my stories and the characters that I have played. I am a very small person but my characters and stories are very big… The growth that I have had is all because of OTT,” he added.
Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga, which debuted on June 24, is Pankaj’s most recent project. His upcoming appearance is in “Fukrey 3.”
