‘Not about Ranveer’

When we reached out to her, she first clarified, “It’s not about Ranveer Singh. I don’t want any complications happening. My words are very clear.” According to her, it was the content and idea of the ad that triggered her, and not Singh.

She said, “In television, we’ve never shown such things. People always make a mockery of the small screen, but they come to TV when they need to promote (films). TV has the biggest reach, but it is also demeaned the most. There’s no respectful balance. I felt bad because I’ve been working here.”

The ad promotes the brand in a Hindi family drama setup, where a joint family is discussing a couple’s issues. Singh and Sinns play brothers who discuss one of the brand’s products.

‘TV represents our culture’

Rashami, who made her small screen debut with mythological drama series Ravan in 2006, has been part of popular TV shows including Pari Hoon Main (2008), Uttaran (2009), Dil Se Dil Tak (2017), Naagin 4 (2020), apart from several reality shows.

Asserting her reaction over the particular ad, the 37-year-old opined, “I did start with regional films before getting into television. The name, fame, money, love and the massive respect I got for my work has been from TV industry.”

Adding that TV represents our culture in a lot of ways, and hence should be respectfully represented, the Uttaran actor further said, “When you travel abroad, people actually see our culture and understand a lot of other things [through TV]. I have a huge respect [for TV].”

So where do we lag behind in terms of promoting TV beyond such soap histrionics, which might or might not be true? Desai was quick to say, “You should ask other actors too about it.”
