Ram Kapoor is excited about his upcoming film Mere Dad Ki Maruti and is busy promoting the film. The actor talks about the film, his career and the bridging gap between small screen and Bollywood. Tell us something about Mere Dad Ki Maruti?
This film is very relatable and that's what I like the most about the script.
It's a over the top comedy and a family entertainer. You can see the film with family. My character is very attached to the country and is very nostalgic about things in life.You are number one on TV. How much do you think it become helpful for betterBollywood opportunities?
It's a bit difficult question. Many believe that people, who are established on TV don't get film. There are few, who get more work in film. I believe that I should do whichever good work I get to do in TV or film or theatre. When you do good work people will notice you.If you have to choose between TV and films then what will you choose?
TV and films are same for me. I took a decision to be an actor and I am an actor. I never decided to be TV actor or film actor. I will try my best till the end of my career to not think like that so that I can do better work in each field. If after few years I won't get good roles in films and get good offers in TV, I will do TV. Now, I am getting good roles after Udaan
so I am doing films. I never want to choose between TV and films.You are successful in TV and films. Are you satisfied with your career?
I am definitely not satisfied. I am at happy space and I know I still have a long way to go. I am not scared as I don't plan far ahead. I like to concentrate on what I have. When I was doing Kasam Se I only did that show. Now, there is Bade Ache Lagate Hai and I am only concentrating on it. To get scared is something not in my personality. I know I still have to do lot of hard work.How do you see TV as a medium of expression?
TV has grown so much. It is like a powerhouse medium. I am saying that this is just a beginning. Eventually 10 years from now TV is going to be bigger as it's a fastest growing industry. The gap between TV and films is getting lesser. In fact, Bollywood is realizing that TV is growing and that's why when you are good on TV and reach a certain level even producers are realizing the connect and that has helped me. I always believe in doing good work and today the best of Bollywood happens to me. I have worked with biggest directors and actors.
