Good work fails on TV, says Pallavi

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Shreya Mukher­jee

Not ev­ery­one is a small screen fan. The re­cent ac­tor to join the band­wagon is Pallavi Joshi (be­low) who feels there has been a steady de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in tele­vi­sion con­tent.

“I don’t feel like watch­ing them (TV shows). It doesn’t mat­ter if you miss an episode, as even after a week or so, you will see them harp­ing on the same track,” says Joshi.

The ac­tor is cur­rently a part of the new his­tor­i­cal fic­tion Peshwa Ba­ji­rao on Sony, where she plays the char­ac­ter of widow war­rior queen Tarabai, the daugh­ter-in­law of Shivaji Ma­haraj. “I’m happy with the show. With Ba­ji­rao, there is no un­ec­es­sary ten­sion or ex­tra mar­i­tal af­fair or women un­nec­es­sar­ily wear­ing jew­ellery to the kitchen,” adds Joshi whose last show, Meri Awaaz Hi Pe­hchaan Hai, didn’t do well.

Talk­ing about it, she says, “Un­for­tu­nately, when you do good work it al­ways nec­es­sar­ily fails. This was never the case ear­lier. Even this on­go­ing show (In­dian adap­tion of the Is­raeli drama Hatu­fim) is good when it comes to con­tent, but isn’t gar­ner­ing good TRPs.”
