TV more powerful medium than films Ashok Lokhande

Actor Ashok Lokhande, who has been a part of the excitement business for as long as couple of decades, says the Indian TV industry is a more capable medium than the wide screen.

“Television is a capable medium. Truth be told I feel it is more intense than movies. Today the film business has turned out to be more costly as it needs to take after a considerable measure of business angles,” Ashok told IANS.

“In any case, on TV you have that freedom, in any event till the time individuals will have the capacity to relate themselves to the characters appeared on TV through different reality based appears. In any case, you can’t quit diverting the crowd,” he included.

Ashok feels reality based stories draw more consideration than anecdotal ones.

In earlier times, films never used to have any similarities to our lives. What we used to see onscreen was like a dream place, which is totally different from reality. Common audience couldn’t identify much with them,” he said.

“But when middle-class subjects became popular on TV and films, it changed people’s mindset by telling them about various societal issues,” he added.

Ashok, an alumni of the prestigious National School of Drama (NSD), is best known for his roles in shows like “Saans”, “Sonpari” and “Kayamath”.

He is currently seen playing the role of Arun Rathi in popular TV show “Diya Aur Baati Hum”, which has been on air since the last four years on Star Plus.

“’Diya Aur Baati Hum’ is a trendsetter. It has inspired the youth, especially ladies, who are not able to fulfil their dreams after marriage,” Ashok said.

“The show has proved over the years that shows with social message can also entertain the audience for a long time,” he added.

Asked whether he ever felt bored at playing the same character for a long time, Ashok said: “It happens with actors when they start getting bored of playing one character for a long time.

“But do we get bored of relations that we share with others in real life? What actors should do is they should feel that with my character I’ll try to entertain the audience.

“All the characters that I have played till now looked small on the initial level. When I joined ‘Saans’, I thought the role of Suri is very small. But what happens is that when I start to conceive my character, the writer gets inspired and feel that they can do a lot more with that character”…….
