It has been over a 12 months since his final present, Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka, was taken off air, however Shakti Arora is but to signal a brand new undertaking. By his personal admission, the actor is on a “forced break” until good work comes his manner.
“The offers I’ve been getting aren’t good enough. Though supernatural shows are the flavour of the season but I don’t relate to them. I can’t imagine myself turning into any animal and then being identified having played such a character for the rest of my life. Supernatural shows are career destroyer for me. I want my audience to remember me for my choices too,” he causes.
Arora additional shares that if he can’t watch such shows himself, he can’t consider appearing in them both.
“I don’t like the way they’re being made for TV. I mean if one is making a show like Lucifer or Jessica Jones, I still understand. But here, we’re only thinking about daily telecast, which is why the visual and VFX are usually compromised upon and the results aren’t good enough,” he provides.
Asked how lengthy he’s going to attend earlier than one thing good comes knocking at his door, the actor maintains that he’s in no minds to hurry into issues.
“I’m a budding artiste looking for substantial work. I need to have that reason to go to work. I can’t do my PR to get work. I’ve done that before and people know me enough. Now, my work should do the talking. Saying no to TV offers might put me in not-so-positive light, but I can’t compromise on quality. I’ve done dance reality shows, too, but Khatron Ke Khiladi and Bigg Boss aren’t my kind of shows,” says the 34-year-old.
Given the unsure instances and everybody trying for extra work alternatives, Arora can be auditioning for movies and internet, and he feels in all mediums, content material is totally different.
“There’s enough time to work on characters and stories. I know it’d be difficult to break into both these spaces, but I won’t stop trying. And it’s not just because TV actors are looked down upon. Sometimes, films and web content require less exposed faces. There are times when creators of web shows and films have limited set of TV actors in mind,” says the actor, including that there are many elements that come into play.
“I also know TV actors who throw tantrums and end up losing out on work. If one of their shows do well, they feel they’ve become Shah Rukh Khan or something. So everything matters,” he ends.
