Yash Raj Films TV
January 2010 marks advent of Yash Raj Films on the firmament of television industry. They launched five shows simultaneously on Sony TV and changed the scenario of the industry. Though their first foray in TV industry was with a show called “ Khazana ” on Door Darshan ”, but this time it is totally different game altogether. The making and acting is so sleek that you feel as if you are watching a film. Quite a few of my students are working in all the YRF serials.
Mahi Way : As per TRP, this one is their most successful show. My student Viraf Patel is doing a very prominent part in it. He was Mr. India 2005 and is a famous model. He did many campaigns before this serial and now he will consolidate his place further after this show.
Rishta . Com : My student Bhisham Mansukhani is playing a prominent part in this serial. He, like Viraf, also started with modeling and did a serial “ Kahiin To Hogaa ” for Balaji Telefilms. He was there with Rajiv Khandelwal. After a brief hiatus he is doing this show.
Seven : This show is getting rave reviews in media. General public is also liking it. While watching it you would feel as if you are watching a sci-fi film. Special effects are marvelous and praiseworthy. An old student of mine, Himanshu Malhotra is working in it. He is playing a saviour who possesses power of fire. Himanshu was part of “ Zee Cine star Ki Khoj ” and after that he did a film “ Mr. Khujli ” with Mr. Raj Sippy. Unfortunately film is yet to get a proper release. Himanshu is playing his part brilliantly in the show.
Powder : This show is talk of the nation. It has brilliant and powerful performances. Editing is tight and again it has a film like feel. Narendra Jetley, who was in batch no. 32 of “ Kreating Charakters ” is doing a role in this show. I remember his first day in the class. He had lots of questions and I can say, he was bit confused. But he worked hard and after completing the course he is now in complete control of himself. I can easily say that he has now evolved and has become a thinking actor. After this show he is doing Sagar Bellary’s new film.
Another student, who is working in this show is Poonam Gibson. She was in the batch no. 2 of “ Kreating Charakters ”.
Lift Kara De : This is a chat show anchored by Karan Johar. So many celebrity students of mine are going to take part in this show as celebrity guests. Saif Ali Khan, Hritik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif are few of them.
It is a very heartening situation. You switch on a channel and there are chances that you will bump into one or the other student of mine.
