The actor comments on the current crop of shows.
Actor Karanvir Bohra, who has been a part of several television shows like Kasautii Zindagii Kay, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Just Mohabbat, says a hit show may take turns that aren’t exactly progressive, but we cannot keep harping about regressive shows on the Indian small screen.
“A lot of people believe that TV has become regressive. Each to their own. As far as the work I have been doing, I like it,” Karanvir stated.
The actor says that the shows he has been involved with have not been regressive.
“Whether it’s Kasautii Zindagii Kay, Dil Se Di Dua..S.aubhagyavati Bhava?, Qubool Hai, Naagin 2 or for that matter hosting India’s Best Judwaah right now, none of them were regressive in anyway,” he added.
However, he believes that a hit show leads to a lot of regressive content on TV.
“But yes, what happens is a hit show leads to a lot of other regressive shows (following suit) but we cannot keep harping about regressive shows. We do have a lot of path breaking shows as well and it’s a matter of time when the break through happens when (Indian) TV touches Hollywood level kind of television (shows). It’s only a matter of time,” Karanvir said.
