Supriya Pilgaonkar is very happy that her Sony show Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi will be back.
Says Supriya, “It feels nice when you do good work and it is appreciated. Here we must credit the fans, for it is on their demand that the channel decided to bring back this Yash Patnaik Production.”
However, the actress remains clueless as to how the story will pan out. “The creative team is yet to speak to me. And I had already informed them that I will not be available all the time in September (when show will be back) due to prior personal commitments. But I am sure all these issues can be ironed out.”
“I have not really asked as to how the story will proceed as I trust the production house who have done a good job so far. Having said that, during the first season the original story line for the initial 7-8 months was extended as it happens in daily TV, and I had registered my protest.”
Talking about her character Supriya says, “Although the youth regard Ishwari as negative character, as far as I am concerned she is a very realistic character. Whatever she did was out of insecurity for her son. There are many women like her among the older generations.”
Coming to the leads she says, “ Shaheer Sheikh and Erica Fernandes are very good actors. Not only them, the entire cast is full of professional and committed actors. You enjoy working with them.”
Supriya who has been around for years doing TV (Tu Tu Main Main and Sasural Genda Phool), theater and films (Khoobsurat, Deewane Huye Paagal and latest film A Gentleman) says, “Sadly while TV has grown by leaps and bounds on technical parameters, content has not grown, rather it has become regressive. It is time channels took up the cudgels of change. They need to stop bending before advertisers who only see numbers. We need to bring change, for the audiences will consume only what we serve.. It is time we went beyond Makhi and saanp phenomena.”
Here Supriya does not blame only the rural population for the so-called regressive content. “People who like such content, live in cities as well. It is time people also broadened their perspective.”
“The biggest pressure today that content writers face is social media rebuke, which forces them to change story lines. And ironically we have no clue if those who tweet or insta their comments have any connection with TRP. It would be good if channels rather than waiting for weekly and minutes reports, let the story do the talking.”
We wish you luck for the new season of Kuch Rang!!
