MUMBAI: From Govinda to Johnny Lever we have seen some amazing talent in terms of comedies in the Bollywood industry. Indeed Bollywood comedian actors have made their strong mark not only in the acting industry but also in the hearts and minds of the fans.
One of India's first dance reality shows, 'Boogie Woogie' was judged by Jaaved Jaaferi, Naved Jafri and Ravi Behl. It was loved by the audience of all age groups and, now, in an interview with an entertainment portal, Jaaved has spoken up about what makes Boogie Woogie different from the ongoing reality shows.
Even after 26 years, the show holds a separate fanbase.
Since its the age of comebacks, Jaaved was asked if he misses being a part of the television. To which, he said that he misses Boogie Woogie but its comeback isn't in his hands. Other than that, there are talks about the comedy show, Takeshi Castle's return. For the unversed, Jaaved Jaaferi's funny commentary for this show made it a superhit and loveable.
Jaaved Jaaferi feels reality shows these days are more "contrived." He told the portal: "There are pros and cons. I personally feel that the biggest pro is that the talent is getting an opportunity, a platform. The cons are that sometimes these shows become too contrived." To add to it, the skilled actor-judge said that all the reality shows look "same" and the sob stories look "fake."
Jaaved further said "Boogie Woogie was organic, real, from the heart and not scripted." There has always been a debate about the makers of the reality shows contestant's using emotional stories for TRP. Earlier, singer Sonu Nigam had said that the sob stories are a "marketing strategy."
On the acting front, Jaaved will be seen in the second season of an OTT show featuring TV actor Nakuul Mehta.
