It’s an exciting time for TV actors: Shweta Basu Prasad



National Award-winning actress Shweta Basu Prasad, who was caught in a prostitution racket two years ago for lack of work, is returning to the small screen with ‘Chandra-Nandni’. She says “it’s an exciting time for actors” on TV as there’s more variety of characters than ever before.

“Variety in roles (for actors) is a consequence of variety in shows (on TV), which I do see a lot now. (Today) shows are plot-based and concise. The stories are different, there (are) seasons being introduced. I think it is an exciting time for television and TV actors,” Shweta told.

Shweta found fame on the small screen through her roles in shows like “Kutumb”, “Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii” and “Karishma Kaa Karishma”. She won a National Film Award for Best Child Artist for her double role in 2002 film “Makdee”.

“I have been refraining from doing TV for at least five to six years now, as I was busy finishing my studies and working as a script consultant in Phantom Films. I never received anything on television that excited me enough,” said the actress, who was last seen on TV in two episodes of “Darr Sabko Lagta Hai” last year.

Shweta said that being an outsider, she has always faced a struggle in her career. And that she still gives auditions for roles.

“I have been an outsider who has grown up in the industry. I have always had these circles in my growing up days too. It was just a matter of right project and age. But, yet I do give auditions and screen tests like any other actress in Lokhandwala (in Mumbai),” Shweta said.

Talking about her preparations for “Chandra-Nandni” and her role of Nandni, Shweta said: “I will be paying attention to some of the nuances of that era and that character with the body language of a warrior princess, which will soon require me to learn sword fighting and horse riding.

“I have been reading on Magadh and Mauryan history a lot these days.”

The show, which will be aired on Star Plus from October 10, will bring forth the saga of the mighty ruler Chandragupta Maurya and his wife Nandni.

Actor Rajat Tokas will be seen as Chandragupta Maurya.

Don’t get confuse by title, Mere Pyare Prime Minister isn’t a political film: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra




Because of the confounded title which seems relating to the Prime Minister Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra the director of an upcoming movie under the title of “Pyare Prime Minster” has declared that his film isn’t about the Prime Minister as it appears by title yet has some unique edge.

He knew that his film Mere can get politicized attributable to its title. The movie producer insists that the film is a “true blue socially relevant” venture with no political point.

The film annals the account of a youthful ghetto kid who goes to the capital with his companions to meet the Prime Minister, after his mom is assaulted.

“It sounds like a political film because of the term Prime Minister but it is a true blue socially relevant film. There’s no politics there whatsoever. It picks up the idea of rape and how we deal with it, the aftermath and the victim,”

“It’s more of a social message film than a political film. Looking at the response after the trailer, it feels the audience has evolved beyond our imagination,” he added.

The film discusses the requirement for open sanitation through the eyes of an 8-year-old tyke, who pledges to improve things after an appalling occurrence.

Mehra, who has recently helmed enormous scale films like Mirza, Rang De Basanti, says he must be aware of his true to life look while discussing a story, for example, this set in ghettos.

Mehra narrated that while working on his he was very nervous due to the sensitivity of the issue and we need to respect people living in slums.“There were lots of do’s and don’ts for me. Don’t insult the slums and the people down there or look down at them and have the so-called western perspective on a third world.”

The director shot the film on real locations with no sets and was constantly aware he was “invading their lives” and had to be more respectful.

The film is scheduled to  release on March 15.
