Rupa Ganguly
 
Rupali Ganguly tells us why she thinks her parents had a tough time handling her as a kid
 Actor Rupali Ganguly may be essaying the role of an understanding mother in Sony Television's new show "Parvarrish - Kuch Khatti Kuch Mitthi", but when she shares funny and somewhat weird instances from her life, we are bound to wonder if her mother had to be extra understanding or strict to ensure Rupali stayed on the right track.
 
 "There was a phase when I thought I was Sai Baba. Since my father was a filmmaker a lot of his friends from the industry would drop in at our place. And to see a kid clad in dad's oversized kurta and mom's dupatta used to make a headgear was expected to be funny. I mean I can't imagine what they would have thought of me then. My dad always thought I was a genius. I think what he meant in reality was that I wasn't a normal kid. Unlike dad, my mother would hit with jhaadu, chappal to ensure I was well behaved all the time. At times, I really feel that my mother and father had a difficult parenthood."

Dilli khana's the best: Vishal Singh

Vishal Singh
On his recent trip to Delhi, actor Vishal Singh, who is still remembered as Sanju of "Dekh Bhai Dekh", told us he was quite taken aback with the confidence level of the child actors roped in for the Delhi-based show "Parvarrish Kuchh Khattee Kuchh Meethi". 

"Kids today are extremely confident. At times, they behave like thorough professionals," he said. Originally from Indore, Vishal longs to be back in Delhi. "I have my cousins here, and it is always fun to be with them. While in Delhi we plan to visit a food joint every day to relish the Dilli ka khana. Trust me, nothing can beat the lips-smacking food that Delhi serves," he said. 

Little wonder then that the actor is eagerly looking forward to returning to the city to shoot for the show.

 TV Review: Shweta Tiwari's 'Parvarrish' is entertaining
 

Sony can finally take a break from re-runs of CID as it gets a new daily soap, Parvarrish-Kuchh Khattee Kuchh Meethi

The new family show on Sony is not only star-studded but promises to be entertaining and sometimes enlightening too. The story revolves around the basic concept of two married sisters caring for their husbands and raising their children. While one family believes in giving their children freedom and space, the other resorts to a stricter route. After winning Bigg Boss 4, this is Shweta Tiwari's first television soap where she plays Vivek Mushran's wife (Sweety Ahluwalia) and mother of two kids. Known to be a good actor, Shweta shows promise in the role of a strict parent. Rupali Ganguly plays a loving mother (Pinky Ahuja) who spends most of her time in tears, while Vishal Singh is her chilled out husband. The daily soap also has Sparsh Khanchandani aka Baby Ichcha of Uttaran fame as a street smart kid who plays Rupali's daughter. The first episode itself showed real promise and if it continues in this vein, Sony will have a definite hit on their hands. It's an ideal watch for both parents and kids as it seems to tackle very real issues. Let's hope it doesn't get too melodramatic and predictable. Fingers crossed!

Black in the fray

-A +A
Font
Chaya UnnikrishnanPosted: Nov 25, 2011 at 0236 hrs IST


Seasoned actors, who were out of action thanks to the strong wave of newcomers, are slowly but surely making a comeback in pivotal roles

There was a phase when new faces were favoured because it was felt only they could attract viewers, but now the makers have become intelligent and are casting actors according to the characters – Shweta Tiwari

The ratio of success actors of my era enjoyed (owing to the long run of serials) was higher than the ratio of success enjoyed by the newcomers - Ronit Roy

At the press conference organised for the launch of Sony's new show Parvarrish, Shweta Tiwari, in response to a query, declared that seasoned actors returning to TV in a big way is fast becoming a trend. We couldn't agree more. Granted that the small-screen is still dominated by heroes and heroines in the age-group of 18-24, at times even lower than that, but the fact is, a door has opened for actors above 30 to play lead roles. The credit goes to Bade Achhe Laggte Hai that brought back Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar in a big way. Close on its heels came Sameer Soni in Parichay followed by Mohnish Bahl in Kuch Toh Log Kahenge. Now we have Shweta Tiwari and Rupali Ganguly essaying central roles in Parvarrish alongwith Vivek Mushran and Vishal Singh respectively.

Interestingly, most of the above -mentioned actors have been around on the TV circuit doing different things but none could take them to their former peaks. For instance, before Bade Achhe..., Sakshi 'Parvati' Tanwar essayed a negative character in Balika Vadhu but that did not go down well with the viewers. She also hosted a few shows including a dance reality show but they were no great shakes. Now, it's as the simple, soft-spoken and straightforward Priya of Bade Achhe ...that Sakshi is back with a bang. Ditto her co-star Ram Kapoor who as the rich, middle-aged businessman possessing a healthy dose of self-deprecating humour, is winning brownie points. Before this, Ram hosted Rakhi Ka Swayamvar and even did a forgettable serial called Basera. But it took a Bade Achhe... to re-establish Ram as a name to reckon with after his outing as Jai Walia in Kasamh Se...

Mohnish Bahl, too, has been doing serials off and on after his popular doctor act in Sanjeevani on Star Plus but while a few like Devi that had Sakshi opposite him did fairly well, most didn't register high on the ratings chart. Not that Kuch Toh... is garnering great numbers either, but it is surely generating hype on account of it being an adaptation of the hugely-popular Pakistani serial Dhoop Kinarey and the unusual older man- younger girl love story with Mohnish playing the silent and brooding loverboy.

As for Shweta, she participated and won Bigg Boss a year ago and acted in a serial Jaane Kya Baat Hui, which many don't remember. Her serial Parvarrish–– Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi has just started and it's early days yet to gauge its performance, but the makers are resting heavily on Shweta to bring in the audience. Shweta herself has high hopes from the serial, though she is sure that it cannot recreate the magic or success of Kasauti Zindagi Kay. She, however, is happy that producers are experimenting with stories and bringing actors like her back into the fray. "There was a phase when only new faces were favoured because it was felt that only they could attract viewers, but now the makers have become intelligent and are casting actors according to the characters."

Agrees Rajan Shahi, who is currently producing Kuch Toh Log Kahenge, Havan and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, "I have always maintained a good balance between newcomers and established actors, but I agree that I have reached a saturation point as far as new actors are concerned. They all look the same, wear similar kind of jewellery and even the characters are more or less the same. Which is why I see the return of seasoned actors as a positive trend. They understand nuances and one need not resort to gimmicks or over-the-top drama. As a maker, it encourages me to explore certain kind of stories."

J.D. Majethia, who is producing Mrs Tendulkar with Deven Bhojani playing the title-role, avers that established actors make it easy to experiment with stories. He, however, feels that actors who have proved themselves were always around. "It was only for a couple of years that most of them had to be out of work because of recession. That is because they were demanding a high price. Now, the economy has changed and also the volume has increased. Earlier daily shows were Monday to Thursday but now they have been extended to Friday. So, it is possible to rope in these actors."

However, Ronit Roy who has managed to sail through the recession, survive the onslaught of new faces and yet remain on top of the game begs to differ. "I don't think the price factor matters. It is the popularity, the affability and the connect that the actor has with the viewer that makes all the difference. Yes, I agree that for a few years newcomers ruled, but on hindsight, the ratio of success actors of my era enjoyed (owing to the long run of serials) was higher than the ratio of success enjoyed by the newcomers. That's the main reason the seasoned actors are back in action." According to him, actors of a certain calibre guarantee a minimum rating, the celebrity-studded reality shows being a prime example.

Whether that holds true or not, serials like Bade Achhe … have given hope to a lot of 30-plus actors. "Instead of rushing in to play father or grandfather's role, or overexpose themselves with reality shows, now they can wait for a strong lead role and be the face of the show," says Shahi, who feels that with real and realistic stories being the order of the day the trend is here to stay. Needless to say, acceptability being the main criteria!

Shweta on parenting

  • November 26, 2011
Shweta on parenting

A single mother in real life to a 10-year-old daughter, Shweta Tiwari is learning the fine art of parenting. But the actor who plays mother to two teenagers in Parvarish — Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi says the serial will help her more in becoming a better parent. "There is no rule book or guide for parenting. It's all practical learning as your child grows. I am a normal mother but as my daughter is growing I am realising that parenting is not easy at all," admits Shweta who has played reel-life mother to 30-year-olds in serials when she was just 25.

What she is particular about is what her daughter wears. "I keep telling her that hiding your body is important to keep away from roving eyes. It's too early to tell her many other things but this is the right time for her to learn the basic discipline," she adds. Is she living by example as far as her clothes are concerned? "I really can't do anything about the clothes I wear in my shows. But I am very careful when I am at home or go out with my daughter," she says. Shweta admits that earlier she would leave her house in mess because she has a maid. "But I realised that my daughter started doing the same. So I had to change my habit of throwing and leaving things here and there," she elaborates.

Coming to the show which deals with parent-child relationship, Shweta says she wasn't very keen on doing the show initially. "I had my doubts because most shows end up as typical family dramas and there is nothing much to do after 20 episodes. But when I read the script I realised that this is really different. Of course, it is a family drama woven around two sisters who are caught up in sibling rivalry in their attempt to be a better parent. But essentially, the show is about parenting in today's times. There are no regular elements of daily soaps in Parvarish — no heavy jewellery, chak-mak saris, 20 characters in one frame or heavy drama and crying," she clarifies.

Playing a talkative Punjabi woman Sweety, who is a strict mother and a control freak, Shweta says, "She is completely obsessed with her house and kids. It has taken me some time to get under the skin of character and speak in heavy Punjabi accent," she smiles. Speaking about her childhood, "I was very ziddi. I was not good in studies but was very fond of nach-gana," she reveals. But she wants her daughter to study well. "What one does in life later is an individual's decision. But education is very important," she adds.

After a spate of reality shows including Comedy Circus, Shweta Tiwari is back to doing what she is best at in Parvarrish

There was a phase when producers and channels felt that only new faces could attract viewers. Now the makers have become intelligent and choose actors according to the characters. That is why you see a lot of seasoned actors back in action

You seem to have got the act of a nagging Punjabi mother pat down.

(Laughs) Yes, The show has given me a different role and look, the reason I took up the serial. I am very particular about not repeating myself on the small screen. This is the first time I am playing a non-glamourised Punjabi mother and it is exciting.

You have no qualms about playing a mother. Earlier you played a mother to grown-up children in Kasauti Zindagi Kay.

I am an actress and if the role is good I have no problem doing it. In Kasauti... I played mother to kids who were 5 to 6 years older than me. As far as Parvarrish - Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi is concerned, it is about parenting. It's not about the right and wrong of it but different forms of parenting. Rupali and I play sisters. As Sweety, I am a strict disciplinarian, a control freak where as Rupali as Pinky is sweet and understanding with her children. As the serial progresses, Sweety learns that you can't be strict all the time, while Pinky realises that you cannot always be friends with your children.

Apart from the fact that I am a mother in real-life, I don't relate to Sweety at all. Yes, I do scold and am strict with my daughter (Palak) but that is common to all parents.

You are acting in a serial after a long time. What kept you away?

It was a conscious decision. I was being offered many serials but nothing interested me. Also, there was a phase when producers and channels felt that only new faces could attract viewers. Now the makers have become intelligent and choose actors according to the characters. That is why you see a lot of seasoned actors back in action. The trend started with Bade Acche Laggte Hai. The serials are becoming realistic as both makers and viewers are bored seeing ostentatious sets, heavy jewellery etc.

I have a lot of expectations. We put in 100 per cent for the show. It is complete hard work. All the same, today the competition is very high, so many things are happening that it's not possible to recreate the magic of our earlier shows like Kasauti.., Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii or Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. When I was popular, there weren't many channels and serials reached TRPs of 27-28

Have you been watching Bigg Boss 5?

No,I don't understand the goings-on.

But you were a part of it once and even won the title!

I did but having watched it after I came out of the house, I realised that they don't show the complete truth. The real story does not come out.

After Bigg Boss you have been doing item numbers, the latest one in Miley Naa Miley Hum.

(Cuts in). I am not doing item numbers. Kattu Gilheri is a fun, peppy song. I will never do a raunchy or dirty song.

Suddenly, old is gold on telly

  • December 3, 2011 
  • By A. L. Chougule
Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar set the trend with Bade Acche Lagte Hai
Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar set the trend with Bade Acche Lagte Hai

Television continues to be dominated by young faces, newcomers in the 18 to 22 age group, most of them in lead roles.

But now, one can spot a growing number of actors in their 30s playing lead roles. They may look like an unusual sight in the sea of chic young faces, but these 30-plus actors are hogging as much of the limelight as their young counterparts.

Pushed to the back-burner because of the channels' preference for newcomers, till recently most of these seasoned actors were either out of action or forced to play cameos and host non-fiction shows. This change has come about largely due to the success of Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, which brought back Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar as a vintage pair who fall in love.

Now, the old familiar faces are back. Shweta Tiwari, who was doing stand-up comedy after winning the Bigg Boss 4 title, and the almost forgotten Rupali Ganguly, have returned to daily soaps in lead roles in Parvarish. Sameer Soni, who was Shweta's co-contestant in Bigg Boss but had stayed away from serials for over a decade, is playing the protagonist in Parichay.

Mohnish Behl, who has not been very active on television after his debut show Sanjeevani seven years ago, is making waves as Dr Ashutosh in Kuch To Log Kahenge. Narendra Jha and Shubhangi Atre, who enjoyed success earlier in Jai Hanuman and Kasturi respectively are the central characters in Havan.

Will the trend contnue? "It's difficult to say but good actors are always in demand," says Hiten Tejwani who recently replaced Sushant Singh as Manav in Pavitra Rishta. Incidentally, Hiten played cameos and character roles for two years and hosted Ratan Ka Rishta after enjoying mega success with Kutumb, Kyunki and Kasauti. He, however, adds that he had no issues playing cameos.

Staying away from serials was a conscious decision on Shweta's part. "I was offered a lot of roles but nothing was really worth taking a call on. But now things are changing as channels are experimenting with different subjects. I have no problem playing a mother as I have done it before with actors older than me," says Shweta.

Ronit Roy, the only actor who has survived the onslaught of newcomers by doing shows like Bandini and Adalat, is of the view that seasoned actors will never fade out.

"The advantage with experienced actors is that they bring maturity and a certain calibre which lends credibility to the show," he says.

Producer Rajan Shahi agrees, "The problem with newcomers is that they all look and act the same. As TV heads towards a new trend, the standard of acting improving with more older actors returning."

What's on Shweta Tiwari's mind?
After winning Bigg Boss 4, Shweta Tiwari is now seen on Sony TV's Parvarrish- Kuchh Khattee Kuchh Meethi, where she plays a strict mom. However, this yummy mummy doesn't get much time to spend with her real-life daughter Palak. We peek inside Shweta's mind to see what she is thinking'

No Shooting
I won't be shooting for Parvarrish for 4-5 days. I will be travelling for my performance at various places as New Year is just around the corner. Most actors perform during this time. So, we will shoot in advance and it is already getting very hectic to fit everything into the schedule. 
  
 
Response to Parvarrish
It hasn't been very long since my show launched. But so far, I have got wonderful feedback from people. I play a role of a strict yet elegant mom. It's something different for me that I hadn't done before. It has been entirely a new experience for me and I always look forward to go to the sets.
 
 Performing on New Year's Eve
I always perform doing New Year's eve. This time, I am going to Jaisalmer for a performance. So I am looking forward to it.

Some time off
Be it weekends or public holidays, I never get any day off. I am always doing something or the other. I don't even get time to even meet anyone. I really hope to have some time off.


Spending time with Palak
I am taking my daughter Palak with me to Jaisalmer where I am performing and will celebrate New Year there with her. So it will be kind of a short vacation for us. I am looking forward to spending some time with her.

Kapil Sibal's comments
I agree with Kapil Sibal that sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google shouldn't uplaod objectionable content or morphed photos of political leaders. But I fail to understand that why only Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh? Offenders shouldn't be allowed to do it with anyone.

Cricket
I love Cricket and I follow it. I am excited about India's tour to Australia. It's always a fun seeing these two teams in a match. I hope to make some time and watch it.
