Small screen too small for Bollywood's A-listers

With desi channels adapting international shows like "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" and "Got Talent", fans in India are quite used to stars such as Amitabh Bachchan or Madhuri Dixit popping up on TV screens as hosts or judges. Bu

    I like what Samir said about commitment and I actually do believe that TV actors should remain committed to the show they are doing throughout because trying to shuffle between films and television creates disturbance to the flow of things for the show and results in the use of annoying body doubles and single frame shots of actors. But I do sympathize with television actors since they get stuck in a vicious cycle of monotonous dialogues/tracks/scenes. Television soaps are a slow poison which kills creativity over time, films are much more straight forward, either you like it or you don't. Although it may not be as big or renowned as films, television is still a significant medium and we have all the Bollywood A-listers running on every other soap opera to promote their upcoming films. Obviously, B-town actors would never regress down to doing television soaps, but they can still use television as a means of providing good entertainment, e.g. KBC, Satyamev Jayate etc.

    to be honest once a movie is out for me its always forgotten...but never a show..when i get connected with a show for nearly everyday n ifever its good...i watch n again watch it compare to movie...nowadays it is seen tv actors are more talented than bolly actors...acting wise..last year i watch maybe 6 bollywood movies of all but i watch all the shows from zee/star/colors...n reality tv is worth watching than movie,i hope these actors understand that sooner
