The humongous Indian TV has showcased a variety of shows ranging from fiction to reality shows, comedy and music shows to educational programmes. But seldom have we seen socially relevant shows on Indian TV. Very few such as `Satyameva Jayate` have come up and garnered our attention. Do you think there should be more such shows conceptualised and developed?

Yes there is a need for such socially relevant shows to be broadcast on Indian television given the contemporary scenario where our society is plagued with matters concerning safety of women, health awareness and medical professionals who have faced a setback in their reliability. The humongous reach of TV should be utilised in sensitizing the audience regarding these social issues.

Do you think `Crime Patrol` and `Savdhaan India` are this type of programmes?

I feel both of them are more crime-oriented than socially relevant. They do make the people aware of the need to stay alert and mentally sound on the crime scenario and its allied subjects like seeking justice in our country but do not stress much on crime prevention. This is where socially relevant programmes play their role as they sensitize the audience on various issues preventing and minimizing the prevalence of crimes, injustice and undesirable incidents in our country. Along with socially relevant films, the most recent one being `Pink`, there is a much need of broadcasting properly conceived television shows addressing the same issues.

Television is a reflection of our society. Earlier shows focused on larger-than-life households and actresses with gaudy make-up and flashy outfits. Viewers couldn`t relate to them and a kind of fatigue set in. That`s how shows like `Balika Vadhu`, `Uttaran` and `Na Aana Is Des Laado` came about. But audiences now relate to real-life incidents. That`s why there are shows based on topical issues.
