Shiny Doshi: Filmmakers used to think that TV actors overact in films

Published

The lines between TV and films are gradually blurring with so many TV actors getting prominent roles in films. Actor Shiny Doshi, who is currently part of Shrimad Bhagavad, says that TV actors perform many scenes every day, much more than film actors, and have no problem adapting themselves to films. “Actors like Mouni Roy, Hina Khan, Karan Singh Grover make us really proud. They have been doing films. Earlier, filmmakers used to think that the television actors would overact and be over dramatic. But now things have changed and any actor who has talent will work in films. Theatre, television or films, every medium needs actor and the medium should be respected. Films shoot max 2 to 3 scenes a day while television shoots for 14 to 15 scenes a day. In fact, shooting 12 hours a day for 30 days becomes very difficult. The shows work for years and it becomes very monotonous and difficult and the actor gets trained in this process. I feel if you place a television actor in any character, he or she will adapt to it well,” she says.

Luck, of course, is another important factor in the industry, says Shiny. However, she adds that hard work triumphs everything. “Luck favours but with that hard work and talents works. Rejection is part of life, not every project works in life. I took every rejection in my life as a challenge to rise up again and try hard to give my best. We are humans and rejections are painful. But if you start taking them positively, then it would eventually work and destiny will get you what you deserve. One should not stop working hard. I feel luck is important but with hard work and talent,” she says.

Talking about her own journey, she says, “When I started my career 8 years back I went for an audition of some other show and somehow the makers of Saraswati Chandra or Star Plus saw me and they thought I should try for it. So the initial show which I went for didn’t happen and Saraswati Chandra happened. I always believe that God has plans for you. I think the struggle started when Saraswati Chandra happened because I had never learned acting. Jennifer Winget and Gautam Rode, who were already stars, were so good at their work that the level of expectation from me also rose. I learned a lot from them. I had life experience of learning acting and direction. I got shows back to back and each character I played was very different. There was a struggle after Khatron Ke Khiladi for a year as things used to lock down but didn’t turn out and so that was a difficult year for me. Everyone has ups and downs in life and finally then my show Shrimad Bhagavad happened.”

Ullu App to produce a web-series on Peshawar’s terrorist attack


Remember the brutal terrorist attack in Peshawar’s Army Public School on December 16, 2014, in which more than 148 people, most of them children, were killed? At that time not only Pakistan, but the whole world, including Indian felt the pain and sorrow. We heard, Ullu App is making a series on the brutal attack.

According to our sources, “The web-series, which is tentatively titled ‘Peshawar’ is terror based love story, which will revolve around people who were involved and killed in a terrorist attack on an army-run school of Pakistan.”

To get, the more details about the series, we got in touch with Ullu’s CEO Vibhu Agarwal. He said, “After Halala, Panchali, Mona Home Delivery and #MeToo, we are coming up with another interesting series. Although, it is based on Peshawar’s terror attack, but we are also exploring another angle, which as of now I won’t be able to reveal.”

When quizzed, why he chose to make a series on terror attacks in Pakistan instead of the Mumbai blasts, URI or Phulwama, Mr. Agarwal said, “Honestly, I wanted to make a series after the URI attack happened. I was also keen on producing a series on 26/11 Mumbai attacks. But since both the terror attacks are already explored, that’s why I decided to drop the idea and chose terror attack on Peshawar. It was a heart wrenching and devastating terror attack. I still wonder how can someone kill innocent school-going kids? It’s been around 5 years, but the wounds are still afresh. Last year, when someone suggested that I produce something on it, I immediately decided to give the green signal.”

We heard Ullu is planning to make a series on Phulwama attack also. Confirming the same, Vibhu said, “Phulwama happened after we did research on Peshawar’s terror attack. Once we complete this series, we will surely come up with something based on Phulwama terror attack.”

If Not an actor I would have been a footballer- Vivian Dsen

 Not many people know that actor Vivian Dsena is a big-time football crazy. Not only does he like to watch football, but he is a terrific football player himself, “Yes, I’m into football big time. I have been playing the sport since I was 10 years old. My father was a professional footballer so in Ujjain quite early in life I developed love for the sports.  my mother was an athlete for Indian Railways and father a footballer for Indian Railways I am a big admirer of Messy and have followed his career graph.
I thrive on footballl as a sports and feel it gives body and mind a perfect balance.
. I prefer football any day over gym or any other sport. To be honest, I have no affinity towards cricket, not even if I am getting paid. For cricket I won’t even travel 2 kms but for playing football I would travel 250 kms too. Cricket I do watch but I will never take an off just to watch cricket. I am aware cricket is religion in India and people are crazy. I am following world cup but only with regards to India. I catch up the score on TV but I am not mad about cricket at all. I feel football need to be encouraged more in India especially in school and colleges. !”
Vivian has played a lot of matches against Bollywood stars as a part of the All Star football team. He explains, “It is a good experience and we all are learning the game. It has been three years now that we have been playing together. Our team is called All Star Football Club. We practice at least four to five days a month, mostly on Sunday evenings. Since everybody has a very hectic schedule, including Ranbir Kapoor,  we have to adjust to everybody’s timings and practice accordingly.  Playing football gives me lot of peace and satisfaction. I have had some back issues when I couldn’t play football for some months. Football si one topic I can talk on for long. Someday I will like to open a football academy for sure. The world players should be invited to India often to encourage the sports. When you meet someone you admire it gives a very different kind of motivation. If I had not been an actor I would have been a footballer for sure.  Football gives me a high of different kind. I play football once a week. More than that is not possible courtesy daily soap shoot. Every actor should play atleast one sport once a week. Gym is fine but there is no substitute of playing a sport.
