TV doesn’t let you get comfortable: Sandeep
Television actor Sandeep
Baswana (right), who made his debut in the television industry with Kuchh Jhuki Palkein (2002), says that TV has always kept him on his toes. While television actors are known to make a considerable amount of money, Sandeep says that the constant negotiation of remuneration often wears him out. “It is not easy to live and provide for in Bombay. If your last show has done well, then you have to insist on the price you want and if it has been a while since your last appearance, then you need to negotiate. You can never get comfortable. You always have to weigh the pros and cons and be smart,” he says.
Sandeep, who has just finished his stint in an ongoing fiction show, says he does not want to be a part of reality show. “I have never done reality shows and I hope I never have to be a part of one. I came to Bombay to act out characters, not be myself in shows,” he says, adding, “I am not comfortable talking about my personal life on screen. I don’t think I want to put that part of my life in front of so many people. Also, half of these shows are scripted.”
