Ok...finally my take....I have been an observer of Indian Television and Bollywood...based on what I have seen I think MR has taken the best decision at the right time. He is around 30...he cannot wait much longer to give Bollywood a serious shot as looks are important. Since he doesnt have filmi connections we know of he needs to devote lots to time and energy to pursue his options. Given the success rate of people aspiring to get into Bollywood his chances are low. BUT its not impossible. Other examples of TV actors trying to make it into Bollywood didnt have either the looks or talent or both. Bollywood is like a closed family...people stay within the confines of the family. To break into it one has to extra-ordinary in some way...and Mishal's extra ordinary quality is his talent.
TV career-wise MR is at a high now. LTL at best can go on well for another 6 months to a year. After that what happens to the actors? They need to look out for work again. Very rarely leads are repeated esp if the lead has been popular and has a strong image. But by the time a show ends the show would have lost its charm and the leads their popularity. Another option for MR is to do reality shows...but the only people who benefit out of them are Bollywood stars. So even from that POV MR needs to have the Bollywood tag. MR would have never been our Dutta if his first Bolly plans had been successful. But now the economy is looking up and he better try his best now. Also TV industry is ruthless...leads can be replaced any moment...the channel has all the power...the TV actors dont have much say are more or less slaves to whims and fancies of channel execs who are mostly kids straight out of college. Its really TRPs that rule roost...nothing more...nothing less. Also from a actors POV he has given enough notice. I am sure he has remained within the confines of his contract. Thats from Mishal's point of view.
But what about LTL? Right now MR is the life of the show. Most prolly if he leaves the show it die a premature death. Other shows have gone on without their leads successfully. But those days are gone now. And LTL has a wafer thin story line anyways and primarily rests on Tasha story. All the cast and crew associated with the show will prolly blame him for loss of livelihood. But then life goes on.
What about viewers...unfortunately the TV industry we see today is the handiwork of viewers. These viewers have failed numerous attempts to give them sensible shows and have chosen to back ridiculous shows for years. Maybe we in the forum are not one of them but thats what the majority want. If you chose mediocrity you will get it. We were lucky that a actor of MR's caliber was a part of LTL. As a viewer of LTL its a loss for me...I would rather the show conclude happily and logically with MR's exit but the show is doing too well for that to happen. Most likely the show and its characters will be butchered and I cannot see that happenning. So yes like many others here for me too no Mishal=No LTL. But then by hoping MR give everything to Dutta till the end are we not being selfish? Its our entertainment but his career and dreams.
What I ideally want: Mishal should be convinced to give LTL few more months of his time till the show reaches a saturation point...he can meanwhile keeping looking at Bollywood projects too. For that maybe he can negotiate with the PH and channel that he be let off once he gets the right opty and also get time off to pursue Bollywood. This will be the ideal win-win situation for everyone-MR, channel, PH and viewers.
Request to forum members: Like Aparna I agree that collective bad vibes has its negative effect. Lets not send bad vibes to Mishal atleast for the sake of all the work he has done in the past year. I know we are all angry and upset. But lets not forget we dont know the whole truth and we he doesnt deserve our badduas based on hearsay. Lets instead send good vibes to Mishal and LTL so that both he and the show continue to do well...together and individually. Lets hope he takes into accounts the wishes of his fans who have supported him through the negative news that was coming from the sets and makes sensible decisions career-wise. It will be sad to see a talent like his go wasted.
