Popular television star Sameer Soni on Thursday said that TV actors are meant to entertain, they do not have a social responsibility. 

Speaking at Agenda Aaj Tak 2012, Soni said we are not here to bring a change in the country, we are here to entertain people through our serials.

"Everybody gets influenced by TV, but we do not have social responsibility," said Soni.

He said that I fight with the writers over dialogues, content. "We also have doubt over content, but TRPs drive the shows," said Soni.

"What is being shown is not in the hands of an actor, but it is my responsibility to make you feel entertained after watching my show," he said.

Besides Sameer Soni, who is the lead actor in daily soap Parichay, popular TV stars Balika Vadhu's Avika Gor, Kuch Toh Log Kahenge's Kritika Kamra and Bade Achche Lagte Hain's Sakshi Tanwar spoke about TV soaps' connect with the public and the impact of daily soap's content.  

Gor said that shows like Balika Vadhu did work towards having a social impact on the people and yet be popular. She spoke about her experiences in West Bengal and Rajasthan where girls agreed not to get married at a very young age. The girls said, "Anandi told us, so clearly, things are improving," she said. 

Sakshi Tanwar agreed with Avika Gor and said, "After we had an episode on breast cancer, many women called me to say that they had long been putting off getting mammogram done , but finally got them done after seeing the show."

Sameer Soni said it was also incorrect to expect that people would change just because of what they saw on TV. "Yes we are impressionable but we are also very intelligent and we ultimately do what we want." However he said on his part he did fight with Ekta Kapoor and writers when he disagreed with the script. "But I'm just an actor, TRPs drive the shows' content," he said.
