‘Welfare of child actors is crucial’
Working under strenuous conditions and a strict time schedule is nothing unusual for TV actors, but actor Ravi Dubey feels that while grown-ups can adjust to this, others should make extra efforts to create a comfortable environment for child actors.
“I think it’s very important that we as actors should make the environment comfortable for child actors and be as considerate as we can be. We need to be their friends and protect them from the harsh conditions in which we shoot in,” says Ravi, who is currently shooting with Delissa Mehra, in the daily show, Jamai Raja.
Ravi, who has worked with child actors, emphasises on keeping a child’s education as a priority. “Children need their dedicated amount of sleep, their education needs to be prioritised. When parents get their kids into acting, they must be very clear about the pros and cons and they must prioritise them,” he says.
While it may seem that child actors do not play a very significant role in daily shows, Ravi feels otherwise. “Children at any point of time raise the energy level on the sets and add value to the show,” says Ravi .
