“OTT And Films Are Not Even Close To That, Nothing Can Beat TV” Says Actor Surbhi Jyoti
Actor Surbhi Jyoti doesn’t want to be called an “actor who only does TV.” As a result, actresses have taken on the challenge of digital on the big screen and is seen in music videos. “We’re back in the era of music videos and we’re really enjoying it,” said Jyoti, who last appeared on Jazim Sharma’s latest track, Bismillah 2.
Jyoti firmly believes that actors should be known independently for their craft, not the medium in which they are from. “I pity those who look down upon TV actors,” Jyoti opines and adds, “I don’t know how and when this has become a norm that if you have done films, you are a good actor and if you are from TV, you are not a good actor. I don’t know why people still believe in it. Maybe people need to take some time to fathom this simple fact that an actor should be judged on the basis of their acting skills and not which platform they come from. ‘Ye TV karta hai toh ye bura actor hi hoga’ is such a miserable statement to make.”
Jyoti started his career on TV including shows Qubool Hai! And Ishqbaaaz finds that the media has the maximum reach. “OTT and films are not even close to that. Nothing can beat TV,” says the Naagin 3 actor.
Jyoti’s work always makes the right noise, but there is no hype in her private life. “Whatever I want for myself, I always end up achieving it,” boasts Jyoti on keeping her private life personal. “It’s my own choice. I’m an actor and public figure but my personal life is nobody’s business,” she signs off.
