Poorna joins Amer­i­can TV

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

In­dian ac­tor Poorna Ja­gan­nathan, (right) who will fea­ture in an Amer­i­can TV show The Night Of as a se­ries reg­u­lar, says that she is “very proud” to be part of Amer­i­can tele­vi­sion.

Poorna, who has also played roles in pop­u­lar in­ter­na­tional TV shows like House of Cards and The Game, among oth­ers, is op­ti­mistic about her progress on tele­vi­sion.

Ask her if she feels whether tele­vi­sion could sur­pass cin­ema, and Poorna says, “Yes, I think so. I go to the movies now with my son. When­ever I am in a theatre, I would be wear­ing 3D glasses. I don’t en­gage with cin­ema in the­atres the way I used to. I am very proud to be a part of Amer­i­can tele­vi­sion.”

The new TV show fol­lows the jour­ney of a lawyer Jack Stone who seeks to ab­solve a young Pak­istani-Amer­i­can stu­dent Naz who is ac­cused of mur­der­ing a girl on the Up­per West Side. Talk­ing about the show’s rel­e­vance, the ac­tor says, “We are a mid­dle-class Mus­lim fam­ily in New York... It is a vi­tal sto­ry­line. It couldn’t be po­lit­i­cally a more rel­e­vant time (for it to go on air).”
