Ac­tor Adaa Khan (be­low) feels the TV in­dus­try has changed a lot, over the years. Ac­cord­ing to her, un­like ear­lier times, the small screen is now driven by TRPS and not tal­ent. She also adds that some­how it ham­pers the con­tent of the show. “There is com­pe­ti­tion among ac­tors and chan­nels these days and weigh­tage is given to the TRPS. More than act­ing, im­por­tance is given to which show is do­ing well,” says Adaa, who is known for her shows such as Am­rit Man­than, Piya Bas­anti Re, Naa­gin. Dis­ap­pointed with the cur­rent sce­nario of the TV in­dus­try, Adaa says, “Ear­lier, the pop­u­lar­ity of the show had to do with the per­for­mances of the ac­tors and they would be praised for the same. But to­day, peo­ple hardly talk about act­ing.” Adaa tries to stay away from com­pe­ti­tion. “I’m not part of any com­pe­ti­tion. If some­one is do­ing good, I’m happy for them. I try to do jus­tice to ev­ery role I take up and rest I leave it to the au­di­ence to de­cide. Num­bers aren’t in my hand. If things don’t work, I work harder and learn from the past,” she adds.
