“I think I have taken to Akshay’s style of working.”

How do you plan on celebrating your birthday today?

I’m celebrating my birthday in Chandigarh by shooting. I might get a little time off once my family is here and I’ll be spending some time with them. It’s a working birthday for me as I’m in the middle of the schedule and I didn’t want to take a break.

From Dabangg to Dabangg 3, how has your rapport changed with Salman Khan over the years?

It hasn’t changed, it’s only got better. Our bond has grown stronger. I’m a lot more vocal with him than I was when I started out. Earlier I’d be extremely quiet when he was around. I couldn’t open my mouth. But now I can talk to him normally, as a friend. I can share my thoughts. It’s great to have that kind of an equation with someone like him. It was Salman, who suggested that I become an actor. Which is why I did Dabangg.

Were you nervous when you began shooting?

I didn’t want to act. So I was unprepared. Even though I come from a film family, I never enjoyed going to a set. I didn’t grow up watching movies. I was always into sports. So, facing the camera was a completely new feeling. I’d wonder, ‘Oh my God! What am I doing here?’ The newcomers today come so well-prepared. They attend workshops and acting classes. They’re ready to face the camera.

Khandaani Shafakhana dealt with a bold subject. What kind of response did it get you?

Swara Bhasker is one actress who has happily hopped onto the OTT bandwagon and is reaping rich benefits. While others were sitting idle and baking banana bread during the lockdown, Swara had four web series out on OTT. And she isn't averse to taking risks or shying away from something risque as long as it indulges her creative cravings. She's always spoken her mind and is known for her anti-establishment stance. She reasons if the artists don't speak up when other sectors get affected, then being quiet will become a habit and they'll easily submit to curbs when creativity gets targeted. She doesn't know about others but she's unwilling to go gently into that dark night. Excerpts from a rollicking interview with the feisty actress who doesn't believe in being just another pretty face...

Renaissance Man : Manoj Bajpayee

The butterfly effect is described as a phenomenon whereby a minute localised change Tin a complex system can have large effects elsewhere. That’s what the emergence of OTT platforms has done to the lives of both content creators and viewers. Actors have benefited most from it as now they’re being judged on the merit of their performance and not their star value. Manoj Bajpayee, a star performer for the last 20 years, found himself marginalisd in movies lately. But he made a resurgence, thanks to the humongous popularity of The Family Man, where he played the title role. He was an unusual choice to play a secret agent but proved to be the show’s leading light, thanks to his split-second timing. The second season of the show will start soon and Manoj is understandably excited about it...
