When in Doubt, Blame the TV Writers

Okay, so nine times out of ten you’ll be right. Still, it hurts to be a whipping boy. Especially for actors. Even actors who do their thing on another continent. Sigh…

TV needs improvement in writing: Tarun Khanna

Ah, now we see where Tarun's expertise comes from - his 6 pack.

Actor Tarun Khanna, who has been part of the entertainment industry since over a decade, feels TV shows as compared to previous times have improved technically, but they lack in terms of writing and hence need better writers.

“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, best known for his roles in shows like “Chandragupta Maurya”, “Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev” and “Mahabharat”, told IANS.

He also said that certain actors “who flop on screen” become writers.

“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,” he added.

Tarun also highlighted the need to have writers like Gulzar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

“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,” he added.

Tarun can currently be seen as Shamsher Devgun in new action comedy show “Police Factory”….
