Dimple Shah is happy to be back on TV with Bhai Bhaiya Aur Brother
Talented TV actress Dimple Shah, who was last seen in Hats off Production’s show Resham Dankh, is back on the small screen with SAB TV’s Bhai Bhaiya Aur Brother (produced by Deven Bhojani and Vipul Amrutlal Shah).
“I play a village housewife called Jyotsna. My character is a cleanliness freak who loves to mop her house all the time. She also likes to cook for her family, but always ends up putting more turmeric for she thinks it is one stop solution to all ills of the world,” shares Dimple with Tellychakkar.com.
Dimple who loves to play comedy accepts that her above character is a bit over the top, but “that is the requirement of the market.”
“Indian mass audiences are not yet receptive to subtle humour as in the west. Plus, I also believe that English language is more tuned to intelligent humour. In Hindi, on the other, we need to be a bit loud to get the fun message across.”
Dimple also has no issues in repeatedly playing Gujarati characters (Resham Dankh and Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka).
“I have done lots of Gujarati stage and TV (with Asha Parekh) and I sincerely believe that Gujarat has the world’s best language and culture. But that does not mean that I don’t like other languages. I have worked in Marathi and Hindi TV as well.”
Ask her what kept her away from the idiot box for five years and she says, “My two daughters were very small then and I wanted to give them hands on attention. I don’t subscribe to maid culture and wanted to raise my kids the way my mom took care of me. Now that they are a bit older (Rishita is 11 year and Reva is 7), I decided to resume work and producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah offered me this project at the right time.”
Dimple, who also acted in Hum Sab Ek Hain (Neela Telefilms), is disappointed with the current lot of new actors. “They don’t have the kind of dedication which we had. I come from the experimental theater background where we did not have any help to iron our clothes or do our make-up due to budgetary constraints. Today these kids have everything yet they don’t put their heart in their work. Having said that, is not entirely their fault for in a daily environment there is no scope for really pushing the actor within, when you have to constantly shoot to create a bank of episodes.”
She is also sad with the fact that Resham Dankh did not rock the TRP charts, “It had then come on a new channel called Star One. New broadcasters take time to find audience loyalty, take the example of Life OK where only Saubhagyavati Bhava is clicking,” she ends.
