New Delhi: Actress Girija Oak is surprised to see the Indian audience’s increasing interest in television shows which promote superstitions. “More than makers, I am extremely surprised to see so much consumption from the audience’s side... Many people blame makers for making such shows, but there is a section of people who love to watch those shows,” Girija told IANS here. According to her, the makers are creating such shows because they are “getting highest TRPs” in today’s time.
“Everybody is here to do business. Whatever sells is going to be made... If such shows are getting consumed and being watched then ofcourse they are going to be made by markers. No one is sitting here to do philanthropy,” she said. However, at the same time she feels there is a need of having good creativity, certain type of class and logic in the content of television shows. Girija said: “There lies a big responsibility on makers as a whole to feed the audience with some small doses of interesting content so that their taste develops. Like film industry, there should also be television appreciation workshops.” “I don’t know people who wear such saris at home like Hindi shows portray... It is an amplified reality. It is very much unrelatable to me. So I did not want to fall into a trap something like that.” (IANS)
