Kaagaz will mark Tripathi's first film as a lead actor and as the actor gears up to film for it, he claimed that being a part of such a strong story has been fulfilling for him as an actor. He said that in his journey that started with modest expectations of some good work in Bollywood, he had never imagined that wonderful things like being the lead in a movie were possible for him. He also added that the concept of a Bollywood hero has changed in the past 10 years as the story and its requirements are focused on more than the idea of a hero.
