TV hasn’t progressed at all; it has only gone backwards: Reena Kapoor

Reena Kapoor, who acted in the show Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki, says the scripts of television shows lack creativity and need to be developed further.

“In the old days, shows were deeply written. People used to focus on creativity instead of writing just about anything for the television show. I think the pressure of daily soaps has taken away the creativity. I don’t think we have progressed at all,” says actor Reena Kapoor.

Television actor Reena Kapoor says television content has not developed at all in the last few years, and has regressed even further.

“A lot needs to develop when it comes to television. I will say we have not progressed at all and have only gone backwards. People don’t make shows anymore, the way they were made earlier and I miss that,” says Kapoor, who is best known for her role of Rani Mittal in the show Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki. The actor blames the need to deliver content daily.

“In the old days shows were not daily but deeply written. People used to focus on creativity instead of writing just about anything for the television show. I think the pressure of daily soaps has taken away the creativity. I don’t think we have progressed at all,” she says.

The actor is looking forward to taking up shows which are not regular.

“I want to take up anything which is different and everything which is there but not common in our house. Kitchen politics is in every house and people know what will happen in the show. I want to do stories which are there but people tend to overlook,” she says.
