Why actor Rakesh Paul didn't do films?
Actor Rakesh Paul who has done shows likeKyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kartavya andBhabhi is now doing Jhilmil Sitaron Ka Aangan Hoga has always stayed away from films, despite getting many chances.
Commenting on this Rakesh says, "All this while in the industry, only filmy families got the best opportunities. So for me it was better to stick to television where you get a chance completely on your merit. And a bit of luck. Television is being watched by a larger audience and you become a household name after portraying a popular character in a daily soap. TV is a very big medium watched by masses and classes. Television Industry rocks. " He also adds, "But now with the kind of films being made I feel this is the right time to get into films where the script is the hero. Thankfully, today actors from television get roles that they actually deserve." When asked who are his favourite film actors, he responds, "Salman Khan for his sheer persona and star power and Mr. Amitabh Bachchan
for the variety of roles he has done with so much conviction and grace."
