Rajpal Yadav avoids web space because of the abuses in most screenplays

Rajpal Yadav is obliged to be acting at the time of a tough pandemic.

Actor Rajpal Yadav is delighted that so many mediums of leisure are now flourishing. “The future of art is bright for web series, cinema and TV. Looking at the kind of changes that are happening in our field, the next 10 years will be a golden period for us,” he said.

The actor is stunned by the diversity of roles that are entering his way. “Kala jitni bikharti hai, utni hi nikharti hai. In our country, we have such diverse cultures, stories and concepts, and only a small fraction of that comes on screen,” said Yadav, who received a lot of web offers he hasn’t debuted in the OTT space, yet.

“I only work on my conditions. For the last few years, I was avoiding the web space because of the abuses in most screenplays. If something (abusive language) is part of the storyline, then it can be accepted, but not just for the sake of it. For me, the concept is bacche, boodhe aur naujawaan, sabko manoranjan mile ek samaan,” clarifies the actor.

Rajpal Yadav is grateful that OTT has eliminated the class and cost barrier, and has made entertainment inexpensive for everyone. “Cinema had become unaffordable for the masses. But today, with OTT, a farmer can get entertained in between his lunch break with the same content that was beyond his reach (until a few years ago). This is truly a revolution,” added Yadav, w are going to see him in many films, including Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Ardh.
