Anil Kapoor 'ready' to act in street plays
The National Award-winning actor says artistes should experiment with all mediums
National Award-winning actor Anil Kapoor says artistes should experiment with mediums and so, he is even willing to act in a street play.
He has been a film star for almost 40 years. After making his TV debut with 24, he will now host the season premiere of the British motoring series The Grand Tour for Amazon Video.
Asked what made him do a show on the digital platform, Anil says, "We have to change with time and medium. As an artiste, I want to reach out to and connect with people. I am ready to act in a street play if people will gather to watch the story."
"Yes, film has always been my medium, but whether it is television or web series, any popular medium that gives me the opportunity to tell a great story or to be a part of a huge show, I will surely explore that," he adds.
His association with Amazon started a long time ago. "My journey started from the time when Amazon was launched in India. Earlier, we shot a pilot for them but it did not work out. However, I am excited about this show because firstly, I am a fan of The Grand Tour. This is one of the biggest shows of the world. When they offered me the chance to host the show, I was more than happy," he says.
Emphasising on the digitisation of our country and how Amazon is bringing a change in our lifestyle, Anil says, "I think it is not only we, the urban people, but also worldwide. The consumption of digital content has increased and we know where the entertainment industry is heading," he says.
The actor is also excited about his upcoming film Fanney Khan.
