Abbas Khan, who essays the role of Biji Pandey, is known for his par excellence performance in the SAB TV’s popular show 'Lapataganj’.
Abbas Khan who was recently in Varanasi to promote his serial, speaks out that TV serials should stick to stories that are real to life. He feels that people like to watch characters with whom they can identify with and are true to life. Abbas mockingly says that the saas-bahu melodramas that show ladies doing house work wearing heavy jewellery and designer sarees are simply hypothetical. He further adds that today Hindi film and TV industry are using mostly westernized techniques and have forgotten the performances of the great actors like Dilip Kumar, Guru Dutt and Dev Anand.
Maybe you are right Abbas, but the fact can’t be forgotten that today these larger than life images on TV are gathering high TRPs!
Currently Abbas is looking forward to for his film ‘Nawab Knights’ which he's scripting as well as acting in. However this is not his first attempt at writing, earlier he had also written the script of ‘Sankat City’ that gained a lot of appreciation and popularity.
