Kushal Punjabi: There are not enough roles for senior actors on television

While most of his
contemporaries are grappling with the fact that opportunities for senior actors
are slimming down on television, Kushal Punjabi who is seen playing the role of
Shivji in Star Bharat’s popular show Kya Haal Mr. Paanchal is rather positive
about the changing scenario.
The actor, who has
returned to TV says, “I know that the roles for seasoned actors aren’t as
good as before. In fact, there are not enough roles for senior actors. However,
it’s a logical progression for young artistes to take charge as viewers want to
watch fresh faces and the production houses and channels are complying with
their demand. Unlike Bollywood, you can’t show a 45-year-old play a college
student on TV. Also, young artistes are roped in on a much lower budget. The
best way to stay in the reckoning is by staying fit; I have been following that
mantra religiously and that’s the reason why even at my age, nobody offers me
the role of a father.”
Kya Haal Mr. Paanchal
is a laugh riot where a Saas is in search of a perfect bahu with five different
qualities for her son. This is the first time that a saas will be troubled for
being too demanding on Indian television. It’s a sitcom which conveys that
sometimes wanting too much can lead to trouble and chaos in our lives. The show
highlights the fact that greed for perfect qualities and faultlessness is bad
and one should not have unrealistic expectations from their daughters-in-law.
Watch
‘Kya Haal Mr. Paanchal’ from Monday to Friday at 8.00 pm only on Star Bharat
