For Ashish Chowdhry, TV is bet­ter than films

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Dhamaal ac­tor Ashish Chowdhry (be­low) who is all set to play the lead role in a TV se­ries, says that the medium is as good or even bet­ter than films. In the past few years, the ac­tor has been fo­cussing more on TV shows than films.

Asked if he misses do­ing films in bulk, he says, “No, not re­ally. I was slot­ted as a com­edy ac­tor in cinema. When peo­ple ap­pre­ci­ate you as a com­edy ac­tor, pro­duc­ers and di­rec­tors will also offer you that kind of role. How­ever, un­less you are one of the top three he­roes of Bol­ly­wood, I be­lieve tele­vi­sion is as good or even bet­ter than films. I was not one of them. So I want to make a mark on TV.”

Apart from the show, he also has two films in the pipe­line, Bat­tle for Bit­tora and To­tal Dhamaal.

In his show, Ashish will play a de­tec­tive, with shades of grey. “There is a back story of the char­ac­ter that will make you ‘feel’ for him. His present ac­tions are the re­sult of past in­ci­dents and he does not show his emo­tions,” he says.
