Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms has given a series of popular shows to Indian television. She fails to understand why TV is criticized for being homogeneous.
At the launch event of her new show Pyaar Ko Ho Jaane Do, she said, “I don’t know why television has always been criticized, especially me, for being slightly diluted, homogeneous and definitely not path-breaking or for not discussing issues which are uncomfortable.”
“We are so scared of getting uncomfortable and we are happy to be in safe zones as far as TV shows are concerned. No channel or production house takes risk to talk about the issues that existed in our society,” she added.
Kapoor also mentioned, “There was a time when ‘Kyunki…’ was the most popular show in Afghanistan. It changed the thought process of women.”
