Actor Tarun Khanna has been in the entertainment industry for a long time now and he feels that there have been some improvement in the quality of TV shows now as compared to earlier, however, the industry still lacks better writers.
In an interview he said, “TV shows have developed in terms of grandeur. Quality of technique has also gone high. But we still need to look into the writing part. We need improvement there. Earlier there was Rahi Masoom Raza. There is nobody today in his comparison.” Tarun is best known for his roles in shows like Chandragupta Maurya, Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev and Mahabharat.
He also mentioned, “Though we have some writers like Raghuvir Shekhawat, Amit Aryan. But writing is a specialist job. It shouldn’t be like if you did not become a successful actor, so you start working as a writer.”
The actor expressed his wish to have writers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Gulzar. “Gulzar sahab also must have thought once to act in a film. Today there are many directors who have started acting. But very few like Gulzar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali understand their job. The kind of niche they have in writing, today’s writers don’t have. Today’s writers should look into the matter that they have scripted. We need more writers like them,” added Tarun.
Tarun is seen as Shamsher Devgun in the new action comedy Police Factory on SAB TV.
