Pankaj Kapur, the Bollywood actor, said that he put in a lot of effort into bringing theater to Mumbai but gave up when there weren’t many people stepping forward to join him. He feels that Mumbai prefers TV to theater.
The experienced actor used to be a part of theatre in New Delhi before he decided to shift to Mumbai and take up acting. He noticed that people in Mumbai did not value theatre and this hurt him a lot. He then decided that he won’t perform in theater until the people start respecting it.
The actor has now become a piece of the Bollywood film industry and has also tried his hand at directing.
