Escapism, Creative Satisfaction, Natural Progression or Just simple plain Fun….
Are they running away from themselves? Somwhere at the back of their
minds they have accepted Television as a "Job", where they get paid for
their work. Acting which was an "Art" earlier, has now turned into a
profession. Besides, they do the same thing all the time. Call it lack
of ideas or lack of courage to try something different to satisfy their
talent; their hunger. With their decision to be a part of Reality
shows, they have found a medium within the industry where they can
showcase their Talent; a “Hidden” one. This could be one of the reasons
which is the driving force for them to take it up, despite the worst of
We all know that 'Acting' is an artform; a creative one, and people in
this field are usually inclined towards experimenting, and want to keep
on growing. But when certain situations and scenarios create
hindrances, and comes in between their growth, they try to find new
horizons..just like a river which carves it way through valley and
hills defying boundries. Dancing, Singing or Stand up acts, gives these
actors a high, which their heart craves for. They have discovered a new
platform; a stage to perform and showcase as to what they are capable
Natural Progression :
Actors' participation in reality shows could be termed as natural
progression as well; a step towards more Stardom and fame! If an actor
is saleable and known, people will invest money, time and energy on
him/her. It’s, sort of, a reward of the hard work an actor puts into
their work. Everyone loves to get more adulation, fame and money and
those who deny this fact, are just running away from themselves and
defying the very Law of nature. “Survival of the Fittest” it is, as out
of sight is out of mind. Audience memory is very short lived,
especially in today’s world, where daily a new actor is being
introduced with all glitz and glamour.
Just Simple Plain Fun :
Some actors do reality shows, just to enjoy their Life & live to
the fullest, as one never knows when their last day will be. They want
to have fun in their hectic and demanding schedule, although they end
up working as hard as they normally do or maybe more, while acting. The
pressure is more, they have everything at stake and for the sake of
TRP’s they had to do it all..from acting, to coming up with politically
correct statements all the time; sometimes for themselves and
sometimes, for their need to be in limelight and be loved all the time!
Some couples take it up to spend some quality time together..another
Oscar Wilde quotes on Theatre :
Definition of Fun
is based on one's choice as well, as some opt for the more serious
medium, Theatre or Plays, where their acting skill needs to be perfect.
One mistake and its over; there is no margin for error. One has be
perfect, on one's toes all the time, as one can see and experience the
immediate reaction of audiences' sitting infront. Though it is the
least preferred medium as it may not garner the required media
attention. Some opt for various sports and maybe this leads to the very
existence of Cricket Club Boxy Boys.
Television actors are really fortunate and lucky to have such a medium,
which gives them immense popularity, adulation and most of all an
escape route to their boredom and stagnation. Even Movie stars are not
that fortunate, they have to keep on working and if they opt for
Television we say Television is Growing and not Silver screen!
do you all think about this? Why do Actors love to work in Reality
shows? What drives them towards it? Whatever the reason may be, we are
not complaining as we are getting our daily dose of drama, suspense and
emotions with our favourite’s actors on weekend as well! And their
presence is not only limited to 5 days a week..we can have them on our
screen all 7 days and that too without a break! We could not have asked
