MUMBAI: Actor Pankaj Tripathi, who has tasted success on the silver screen as well as the digital space, says that when it comes to the debate on web censorship, a dialogue is extremely important.

"Everything should have a debate because the dialogue is vital. The storytellers get to tell their stories the way they need to, without the censors on the platform. They get to have freedom," opined Tripathi, who gained a major fan base as Guruji in "Sacred Games" and Kaleen bhaiya in "Mirzapur".

However, not everything can be defended in the name of creative freedom, he feels.

"There are some people that just want to spread 'sansani' (sensationalism). They too have some freedom because there isn't any censorship involved. So, there are pros and cons of getting censorship, and if there's a debate only then will people reach some conclusion," the actor acknowledged.

The actor was last seen in the silver screens in the film 'Angrezi Medium', which also starred Irrfan Khan and Radhika Madan. He also played a major role as he debuted into Holywood with the Netflix film 'Extraction', which starred Chris Hemsworth and was directed by Sam Hargrave, the stunt co-ordinator of the Marvel's avenger series.
