seems that well known film director and producer Sanjay
Leela Bhansali (SLB) who made a foray into Indian television
with Saraswatichandra seems to prefer the big screen over the
small screen for he himself admits, "I preferred to hand over
production of my above Star Plus show to some other
producer (Sphere Origins) while continuing to give creative
inputs. I could not find time from my upcoming film Ram-
Leela which will release this Friday. I personally supervised
the first fifteen to twenty episodes of my take on the famous
Gujarati novel written by Govardhanram Tripathi. They were
highly praised, but it was becoming too demanding to give
every day attention."
Talking about this medium of future SLB who has earlier made
celluloid classics such as Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
and Black etc said, "Television is very powerful as it reaches
out to millions of people. My own mother is hooked to the
tube between 7-10 pm; you just can't disturb her then. She
would only check out my show when it would simulcast on
Doordarshan at 9 as at Star Plus' time slot of 7.30 pm she
watches some other show. She would also compare
Saraswatichandra's content with other shows, which I had no
clue about."
"Over all I enjoyed the process of creating such a made-for TV
concept. I thoroughly enjoyed the give and take with the
channel on creative calls. It was interesting to understand
what makes a show hit on the ratings game. We try to
decipher the elements of why a show which is number one in
the US is number six or number 8 in India (we assume he is
talking about 24)," he said.
In closing Sanjay said he would not prefer to do any more TV
projects at the moment.
