If I work on TV, and on net as properly, and even in movies then why simply name me a TV actor? Name me an actor na? I’m not saying I’ve an issue with it, I’m very proud to begin from TV, it has made me what I’m in the present day. However, to segregate individuals based mostly on the platform they work on, after which discuss equal alternatives? We shouldn’t be. Ultimately who’s making us a star? The viewers.

Humko kaam tabhi milega jab viewers help karegi. We dwell in a social media world the place there are individuals who have maybe accomplished nothing huge however are incomes greater than us, who’re these individuals following them, making them stars? It’s the viewers. We are saying that this doesn’t occur in overseas, it’s as a result of there, an actor is an actor, nobody says that ‘oh Jennifer Aniston toh Pals ki TV actor hai!’ It’s that small a sport. These are small issues which wants to vary.”
