"We Have A Larger Fan Base Than The New Crop Of Film Leads," Karan Patel Expresses Angst Over Discrimination Between TV And Bollywood Actors
Of late, we have seen several TV stars waking up to address the discrimination that’s meted out to them against Bollywood actors. The comparisons between the two mediums have always existed and the film industry has often had the upper hand, even stars from the bigger screen, as compared to actors working in serials.

Now, popular face from the small screen, Karan Patel has addressed the discrimination between TV and Bollywood and expressed his innermost thoughts in a lengthy post, drawing examples on how even films and film stars are dependent on TV to a large extent.

Taking to his social media page, Karan wrote, “I recently had a conversation with a friend about the implementation of a simple thumb rule ... ‘CONTENT’ has to be the ‘MAIN LEAD’ in any form of entertainment, be it the MOVIES or TELEVISION, and with a few recent pieces of work i came across on various web portals, i think i was right. I am glad that the audiences are coming off age and are widening their acceptance brackets.

Now for the makers to GET UP & REALISE that it is the ‘CONTENT’ and the ‘TALENT OF THE ARTIST’ that BRINGS AUDIENCES and NOT the Actor’s ‘MEDIUM OF ORIGIN’

So all those ‘FILM MAKERS’ with “nahi yaar tv ka face hai” or “Tv wala actor nahi chahiye” kind of attitude, here are a few things you probably haven’t realised .... 👉 Today TELEVISION has a FAR WIDER reach as compared to your FILMS. 👉A POPULAR TV ARTIST in todays time, on SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS is MILES AHEAD than MOST FILM ACTORS (who think they are stars) and the NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS is PROOF TO THAT.

👉 FILMS are the ones that NEED the PROMOTIONS on TV thus proving that we market your product to a far bigger larger scale, so that takes care of “arre tv actor ko kitne log pehchante hai ?”. 👉 Not only PAN INDIA but INTERNATIONALLY TOO most of US TV ACTORS have LARGER FAN BASES than these NEW CROP OF FILM LEADS.”

He further wrote “👉 The NUMBER OF SCENES spread over VARIOUS EMOTIONS that a TV ACTOR manages to GET PERFECTLY in A DAYS TIME is something that I’m sure Film Makers have no clue about. So there goes the, “tv actor hai, complex character kar payega ?” mental block flying out of the window. 👉 TODAY’s AUDIENCES watch TV or FILMS for ENTERTAINMENT, so if your ARTIST does JUSTICE TO THE CONTENT, you NEED NOT WORRY about THE FATE of the PROJECT.

Lastly, what i FAIL TO UNDERSTAND is, that now when the AUDIENCES , who are a Producer or Director’s biggest concern have TARNISHED the DISCRIMINATION between TV & FILM actors and have Chosen ‘ENTERTAINMENT’ as their TOP PREFERENCE, Why do FILM MAKERS still have the same OLD SCHOOL THINKING when it come to CASTING ACTORS.”

Recently, the actor had promoted a new range of condoms to explain why sex without mutual consent is wrong.
