Recently, Anil Kapoor said that artistes should experiment with mediums and so, he is even willing to act in a street play. Asked what made him do a show on the digital platform, Anil said, "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 added
