"Young actors have to work on their diction"- Puneet Issar

Veteran actor, Puneet Issar who is presently seen as Jarasandha inImagine's Dhwarkadheesh shares his thoughts and feelings about television today...

When we hear the name Duryodhan we have none other than Puneet Issar's face coming in our mind. It is almost impossible to picture someone else other than him for the role. 

Today Puneet Issar is back on television in his new avtar as Raja Jarasandh in Imagine'sDwarkadheesh - Bhagwaan Shree Krishna. Though Puneet has done several roles in the industry his roles in mythos are ever remembered... 

In a candid chat with TellyBuzz he speaks about his experiences as an actor and his thoughts on young talents... 

You have returned almost after a decade to television. How do you feel?
Actually I am returning to a mytho after almost a decade as I have done Left Right Left in between. I feel really nice to be back.

Were there any expectations while you were returning after a long time?
Not really because I was really engaged in my other work in films. But there were discussions among people that I am returning after a long time. Frankly speaking I was not on a break at all as I was busy with my films.

You have seen Nitish Bharadwaj playing the role of Lord Krishna with you. How would you rate Vishal Karwal in the same role?
Actually one cannot compare Nitish Bharadwaj against any actor; in fact you cannot compare Mahabharata with Dhwarkadheesh. Vishal is a kid now and he is doing pretty well.  

How is your association with Imagine TV?
Imagine is a nice channel, they had wanted me to play this role and I gladly agreed.

Now that you have returned with a mythic show, what are the differences that you have felt with respect to techniques and the look etc?
These days television has become like a tissue paper where you use and throw stuffs. The so called creative people have to really work hard on their work and there is a great need of strong scripts. When we did Mahabharata, we used to take six days to shoot one episode because that was a once a week show. Today since the shows are on daily basis, there is a lot of quality loss. The idea of Mahabharata was generated in 1986 and the show was started in 1988, thus you can imagine the amount of work that has been put for the show.    

Since there are a lot of chroma shoots nowadays happening, do you think the show seems unreal when compared to the earlier shows?
Earlier when we had war scenes, we used to shift ourselves to Jaipur so that there is a huge barren land. But here when time is an important factor, the quality suffers.   

What made you stay away from television this long?
I was busy with films and direction and writing.

You have been a director and an actor, what do you enjoy more?
Frankly speaking, direction gives you job satisfaction and you feel you are paid for what you like. But acting is also my passion and that's basically what I started with.

Do mythic shows attract you more that the normal fiction in television?
Actually television has become a senseless medium where everything has become temporary. Though there are shows on television now, older shows cannot be recreated like the Mahabharata, Ramayana etc.  

Do you watch any shows on television today?
Not really, actually I do not get much time.

You are also doing Chandrakanta at the same time. How do you manage both?
If you like something you do it, and you will automatically get time.

One advice you would like to give to the young talents of today?
I would like to ask them to improve on their diction a lot because sometimes they have the 'chalta hain' attitude which is not really good.

What are your other projects in television and films?
I have a film I Am Singh that is tipped to release in September, it is the story of mistaken identity where Sikhs are killed mistaking them to be Arabs.

Men are back! 

Male protagonists are once again getting more screen space on prime time telly soaps.Is this trend here for keeps Ahmedabad Times finds out about the shift in focus 

Shruti Jambhekar 


Finally its happening! A new male order is calling the shots on prime time television shows.After years of playing second fiddle to the bahus and betiyaans in the kitchen dramas,general entertainment channels have prominent male protagonists in the lime light,taking centre stage in the telly shows story line.While the 15-year-old crime thriller CID was the only one with four male leads running the show,now more names have joined the fray.Ronit Roy (Adaalat),Ram Kapoor (Bade Achche Lagte Hain),Vishal Karwal (Dwarkadheesh),Saheer Sheikh (Navya),Neil Bhatt (Gulaal),Sameer Soni (Parichay),Shiv Subramanium (Mukti Bandhan) and Sushant Singh Rajput (Pavitra Rishta) have men getting equal screen space and are no more standing in the frame as the supportive husband/boyfriend.So what made this change possible at this juncture 
Rajita Sharma,producer of Ram Milaye Jodi,who is coming up with a daily soap revolving around two brothers says,The amount of emphasis being given to the male characters largely depends on the concept and the storyline.At the end of the day though,relationships are a crucial part of our lives,as well as our shows,so no show can revolve around one character,but depending on the ongoing track the focus given to a character may vary. Ravindra Gautam,whos directing Parichay feels,Men are definitely watching more television now.The post 10 pm time band has a lot of male viewers,so,we as story makers are focusing on shows with significant male characters. Some showmakers feel it is not a new move and male characters have had their share of importance anyway.Producer Rajan Shahi says,Strong male protagonists always existed on TV,but the perception has changed,and its a healthy trend.The audience likes stories they can relate to.The percentage of male viewers has also definitely increased,so the male leads get more space in promos/airtime. Producer Siddharth Tewary too,shares the same view,In family soaps and love stories male protagonists are important and even female viewers like to see men in the lead. What do actors feel about their new prominence Actor Karan Mehra feels,Its feels good to have such a meaty role in Yeh Ristha Kya Kehlata Hai.While TV is a women dominated medium,but times have changed.I have come across people from younger generation who relate to my character and love the show. Vishal Karwal whos essaying the lead role in Dwarkadheesh says,Men are getting bigger and better roles in TV shows and thats a welcome change. Of course TRPs will ultimately decide whether the male superstars have made their way into the audiences hearts or not,because the hand that weilds the remote is one that has the final say in a l m o s t everything.shruti.jambhekar @timesgroup.com

When stars played cupid

Natasha Coutinho/Hil Road Media



Isn't it fun playing cupid for friends and family? Making plans to get two people together and strategically implementing them is exciting. Our TV stars too have tried their hand at playing cupid, while some have succeeded others were disasters. The stars recall their experiences and share it with us. 
  


 

Vishal Karwal

 
I recall playing cupid for a friend when I was in college in Chandigarh. He had a crush on one of my classmates, so we came up with a plan according to which I took the girl to a restaurant and asked the guy to come there too. I pretended to be surprised to see him there and introduced him to the girl. They became friends and later the girl too fell in love with my friend. It has been quite a few years now and they are still very much in love. Whenever they have a fight, both of them call me to complain about the other and I think kahan phas gaya (laughs).

TOI: TV hotties flaunt their six packs!


Flaunting six pack abs is a major fad among television actors these days. Ahmedabad Times takes a look at their fintess funda


Vishal Karwal
(Lord Krishna in 'Dwarkadheesh - Bhagwaan 
Shree Krishn') 
I don't work out just because I am an actor. I have been visiting the gym for the last four years. Though I have a hectic shoot schedule, I exercise every day. In fact, I've been to the gym even at 2 am on some occasions. I stay fit to be happy physically and mentally. I am passionate about working out - it is not a stressbuster but something I enjoy doing. Irrespective of my profession, I'd have always maintained my six abs. Currently, I have stopped working on my abs as it wouldn't go too well with my current character.

Flip through your fave shows on air today and the chances are that in 6 out of the ten shows you will chance upon a male lead who is the focal point in the show.

After years of playing subordinates to their female counterparts the men are back on shows. Ram Kapoor (Bade Acche…), Ronit Roy (Adaalat), Sameer Soni (Parichay), Vishal Karwal (Dwarkadheesh), Harshad Chopda (Dharampatni), Ashish Sharma (Chandragupta Maurya) are a happy bunch of actors. They are on shows where the focus is on them and they are no longer paying second fiddle to an actress.

If we look back at the shows that were a rage some time back it was the Smriti, Sakhsi, Shweta and company that ruled the small screen. Not only were these actresses the fulcrum of the shows the audience too was predominantly women. But times are changing and one sees that men are back in action. Men have played key parts in TV shows for long, but an entire story revolving around a male character has been a rarity. Years ago, shows like Office Office, Karamchand, Mohandas B.A.L.L.B., Mr.Yogi, Shaktimaan and Just Mohabbat had men in the lead. But ever since the saas-bahu sagas like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki came in, women took centre-stage as protagonists.

But now even a Ekta Kapoor who is known for her saas bahu shows has changed gears and is now offering shows which have heroes playing the central character. Both her latest two offerings Bade Acche on Sony and Parichay on Colors have roles especially etched out for the men in the show.

Sameer who makes a comeback on fiction with Parichay says he is happy that the show is being promoted though the male protagonist as most shows are sold through the woman and her problems. He adds that this shows that men are now getting their due on the small screen.

Ronit Roy who has done some interesting work on TV says he feels "great being a man in a woman's world".

After Kyunki..., the target was the woman audience. The shows were purely made for women. If you ask someone about Mihir Virani...they would know, ask about Rishabh Bajaj, they would know...Dharamraj Mayvanshi from Bandini...that also they would know...so at no point have I felt that my character has been eclipsed by a woman character, Roy says.

Stories are no longer one-dimensional. They are stories about people, families - the father, brother and their viewpoints. Producers are no longer playing on just hero-heroines - they are playing on characters. Everybody is getting an equal balance. Father and brother play an equally important role and are given equal prominence.

With the balance tilting in favour of men the audience profile too is seeing a noticeable shift. More men have begun to watch soaps and hence one sees that even in the existing soaps males are dominating screen space. All those who have been watching some of the on going serials know how big the roles of some of the male actors are. Shaheer Sheikh (Navya) couldn't have asked for more and neither would have Karan Mehra (Yeh Rishta...) Even a Sushant Singh's (Manav) role in Pavitra Rishta is as important as that of Ankita Lokhande (Archana).

Though some producers do not feel that men returning on TV could be called a trend. It all depends on the demand of the story and if the story centres around a male then so be it.

Today male actors have become an integral part of scripts. In fact, Papad Pol - Shahabuddin Rathod Ki Rangeen Duniya on SAB has a very unique male protagonist played by actor Swapnil Joshi. One has seen a dark and sweet girl play a central character in many a show but the idea of an underdog, dark, very sweet, helpless man wins sympathy from everybody. So is the role played of a house husband by Deven Bhojani in Mrs Tendulkar is in that terms very hatke.

In a lighter vein all that can be concluded that this news may not be good news for the women on TV but with so much attention being heaped on the men one is sure they are lapping it up and how.

Brothers, sisters celebrate Rakhi

By Supriyo Hazra

Kolkata, Aug 12 (IBNS): The spirits of Indian festivals are always vibrant and when it comes to 'Rakhi', the emotions attached to it is high.



Vishal Karwal who plays the character of Krishna in €˜Dwarkadheesh Bhagwaan Shree Krishn€™ of Imagine TV said: €œI love spending Raksha Bandhan with my sister Neerja, I remember when I was in boarding school she would visit me on Raksha Bandhan and tie the Rakhi, as a kid I would save up on my pocket money to give her gift in return.

"This year however I am shooting so she has already sent me the Rakhi which I will tie-it on Raksha Bandhan.€
