Ronit Roy Talks About Television Daily Soap Roles; Says, “I Feel Unsatisfied”

It’s been a long time since actor Ronit Roy has been steadily playing an active part on TV because he doesn’t want to feel dissatisfied as an artist.

“For me, nothing is happening on the small screen. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, I got some offers from the television industry, but nothing was interesting. Sometime back, I also did Shakti — Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, woh role kya tha aur kahan chala gaya. That’s because a daily soap has a very different language”.

He continues, “Satisfaction toh dur ki baat hai, you come out of that work feeling very unsatisfied.”

The reason for this is explained by the actor who became known through his project on a small screen, “That’s because the TV has its own set of limitations. They have to work within that little arena. As a result, similar content is churned out, and it becomes repetitive”.

“Then, it is very frustrating,” Roy,  still known for the role of Rishabh Bajaj in Kasautii Zindagii Kay of Mihir Virani in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.

However, he is not averse to the idea of picking a TV project. “I have been in talks with two-three people about some projects. But my problem is that If I am not excited, I find it difficult to step out of the house,” he says, adding, “Woh ek driving force hona chahiye role mein, which pushes me to step out and go to work. If I don’t enjoy my work, I don’t step out for work. Nahi toh critics bolenge ke he is sleepwalking through his role”.

Recently, he has entered the digital media and has projects such as Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain, Hostages, 7 Kadam, and Candy. “The craving to do more is always there. Ek acha kaam kiya, aur logun ko pasand aaya, that is the biggest high for me. But I like to go beyond that. I am greedy, hungry, always to do more and better. The quest is on,” he concludes.
