The weepy women of Indian television have made way for the dashing older men.Mohnish Behl plays the quiet and brooding Dr Ashutosh in a relationship with a young intern in Kuch Toh Log Kahenge


People can watch the same story only so many times, says Kamlesh Pandey, 60, who has adapted Pakistani writer Haseena Moin's story Dhoop Kinare for Kuch Toh Log Kahenge. Television has reached a saturation point and the audience feels a psychological need to have strong male characters they can look up to, he adds. "TV often replaces real gossip for women as they like to look at other women, their clothes and jewellery and talk about them." But he believes the time is ripe to introduce the silent, mysterious man to television as this is the kind of character women get attracted to, even if he is slightly negative. "Mohnish is the new silent, brooding face on TV," he says.
Mohnish Behl is faintly disappointed with the TRPs of Kuch Toh Log Kahenge but maintains the character interested him. Not only are the two leads of the soap 18 years apart, they are strikingly different. His maturity is in sharp contrast with the childlike mannerisms of Kritika Kamra-he is restrained and smiles shyly, she sulks like a little girl and plots ways to catch his attention. "People are surprised that I am looking pretty good in the show. As an actor I would like to get a higher volume of work but how many such roles am I going to come across? I may get the main villain's role, or the father of the boy or girl, but the narrative would eventually shift to the young romance," says Behl, articulating the quandary of the ageing male actor.
