Actor Sudhanshu Pandey, who is currently seen in Rajan Shahi’s Anupama, says he never imagined TV success and popularity before being a part of the show.

A while back we reported that the show became the talk of the town when netizens took to social media to bash the makers for whitewashing Vanraj’s character in the show. Since the past few months, the show has been topping the TRP charts, which now netizens think that will no longer be the case.

“I had so many television offers over the years and I would turn down almost all of them for various reasons. In the end, Rajan’s offer came to me and he basically just had to tell me a line and I told him That let’s do it.”

“The show had a great story. My character was absolutely brilliant and I didn’t need to explain it much. He mentally prepared me for a long time before coming into this scenario of this daily show as it is a completely different world for me.” Sudhanshu it is said.

He adds: “I have a huge body of work behind me, which includes some 47-48 feature films in Hindi, a few Tamil films and a Hollywood film. I was part of ‘A Band of Boys’. During 2002-2005 we were angry. We were probably one of the biggest.”

“We were seeing popularity on another level. ‘Being a part of a show like’ after so longAnupama‘, I realized how incredibly popular television can make you. Obviously, television has a different set of audiences. It is a bit different from the audience of OTT platforms or movies. The daily shows have a very loyal and varied audience. ,

He said, “The stardom and fame that I have got from this show, I could never have imagined before. We are blessed that the show has become so popular today and I love the show and the way I feel after the show. I can’t thank God enough for the popularity I got.”

TV content has evolved over time, the actor says.

“Television was initially women-centric and the content has changed. But I think the content on Indian television is always going to be targeted at the masses and the middle class audience. Since it has the biggest audience and that’s where the popularity comes from. So, the content hasn’t changed much or far enough,” he says.

In fact, the content has become more meaningful, he says: “Definitely, the television content has come a little bit away from the saas-bahu shows that show you used to be. Now, television offers a lot in terms of character and the kind of relationship that you get to see on television. ,

“Also, I think a lot of television shows have also started focusing more on social reforms and started sending social messages through entertainment and stuff. That’s why our show Anupama has done so well. Because we are giving such a strong social message. Especially for the upliftment of middle class women and dependent women. Telling them that yes, they can be independent too,” he added.

The actor says TV content is no longer just for women and targets a larger audience.

“Television shows have also evolved and it is no longer just for women. It is definitely targeted at a large audience. As I said earlier, it is targeted at the middle class which is the largest segment where we all belong. That’s where popularity comes, money comes from there and advertising comes from there.”

“Everything is targeted there. Yes, I would say that now entertainment is equally for men as well as women,” he says.

He concluded: “Essentially most shows have a female-centric storyline, but obviously the male actors have equal prominence. Most of the women are the face of the show and that’s how it works and that’s how they attracts viewers and families to the show.”
