I actually wrote this response to someone else's thread. But he closed it. So, I thought to make a post on it. It's been long since I want to discuss these things.
 
 
I see lot of threads getting close coz Modz feel we are bashing a Character.
 
 
I want to know today the DIFFERENCE between ACTOR vs CHARACTER.
 
 
Let's discuss this issue. And, please everyone take this in right spirit. This is NO counter argument or anything. It's about discussing what everyone feels here.
 
 
When we call Raavi as Samosa or Dumbo. When we Hate Raavi.. People say
 
 
What Aanchal must be feeling knowing that her Character is being hated to the core?
 
 
Well, to answer that..
 
what do you think Amrish Puri used to think when people hated him for Playing Negative roles? or what do you think all the Actors who play negative characters on these serials feel coz they are being hated everywhere. Confused
 
 
Let's look from opposite perspective.. Raavi is not a negative character.. but still people hate it.
 
 
Why should it affect Aanchal Confused She isn't the one writing tracks or dialogues. She does what she has been asked to do. She can't control her character & also the fact that she can't control what viewers feel for her character. Approve All Actors are aware about this fact.
 
 
Some characters are loved by masses whereas some just doesn't click with audience inspite of being positive. Raavi's character falls into later category.
 
 
There is nothing to worry about what an Actor must feel when you comment about CHARACTER. Because simply you are discussing CHARACTER and NOT an ACTOR. Period.
 
 
But It's a different thing when you make a comment about Actors acting. Like we say Vivek nailed this scene. It's a Praise. It's like you are impressed with his acting.
 
 
Same way when you say... Rinku wasn't upto the mark. She gave very worst expression. That's called criticism. You didn't like someone's acting & pointed out flaws.
 
 
Why Don't all Actors get awards? Simply because Not everyone can act Brilliantly.
 
 
Criticism in the field of acting isn't WRONG. We have critics. Actor generally takes Criticism spiritedly and improve. That is the way to learn. That is the way to grow. When Audience Criticize some actor doesn't mean they are bashing. It's simply means.. you didn't like so n so's acting. That's it. Actors aren't sitting there to cry over some comment. They know to take criticism. It's the blind fans who terms criticism as bashing. Sleepy
 
 
Calling a Character names [like Samosa, thakeli] isn't calling an Actor. We are here to discuss this serial and it's characters.
 
 
We can call whatever we want to character coz simply, he/she doesn't exist in reality. Actors can't control their character & also the fact that they can't control what viewers feel for their character. Approve All Actors are aware about this fact. they aren't sitting there to feel bad if someone calls their character names. They are in the field where all this is common & they are habituated.
 
 
THANK YOU.Smile I thought to point out what I feel. Hope to hear from you all. Please have healthy discussion.

Cant agree more SachiSmile

Characters and Actors are different. When Raavi is called Samosa...it is Raavi and not Aanchal. Same goes with the other characters as well.

I guess there is a huge difference between criticism and bashing. Raavi is not looking good in her make up. Actually she did look horrible in one scene. I want to have the freedom to express the above sentence. What I saw and felt, i want to express. Yes, if I start using abusive words, it is bashing and definitely steps should be taken. 

I have gone through lot of old posts especially that of Bebe track where Lucky and Bebe were criticised a lot sometimes I felt it did go beyond limit. But it is fine because it is someone else's opinion.

There is also the context in which we say...sometimes we have a serious discussion...whereas sometimes we are having fun. 

Honestly there are lots and loads of things which I want to say about Raavi...but I am not sure if I am allowed to say..and hence I have to use other means to discuss.

Again as Sachi said...Dev team please do not take it as a criticism against you. It is just our opinion we would like to share.

yes shwetha, i said that in the first comment of this topic. And i didn't mind anything. Instead i was feeling bad for making sachi's post valueless in my topic. Anyways, i guess nobody is unhappy with someone else's behaviour! Peace!!

@Shwets..
 
That's absolutely what I feel.
 
If we use foul language or dismissive words.. Then Action should definitely be taken.
 
But if we call a Character by Name.. Samosa. Where does this fall into bashing? It's not even Criticism. It's the name that has been used for the Character in the serial itself. Ouch
 
 
I want to give an example. I used to be part of Forum which show is off-air. There was time when we absolutely didn't like The Female Lead behavior. We used to voice it out. There were some who liked her.. They used to counter argue saying, They disagree. Then we argued with our reasons & they with their own reasons. But Not for a day we had fights or anything. Everyone agreed to Disagree. And, It was about CHARACTER. That is the way to have discussion. Smile
 
 
I don't think twice before making Fun of A CHARACTER. Coz I feel He/She doesn't exist in reality. Approve Why should someone feel bad for a Non-existent thing. And, I will continue to post what I feel because I know I  Never use hurtful words to make a comment. My Language is very polite & clear. Thanks.Smile
 
And, yes
 
TO DEV TEAM, Please we aren't making a comment on you. I wanted to have this discussion to know what other forum members feel. I hope you would take that in the same manner. Big smile
