Television actor Vishal Aditya Singh who is known for his role in Chand Jalne Laga, has expressed discontent with the persisting prevalence of outdated saas-bahu dramas on television screens. Despite advancements in storytelling and the digital era, these shows, according to Vishal, continue to rely on clichéd narratives and are failing to adapt to changing times.

What did Vishal Aditya Singh say about the TV industry?

In an interview with Dramas and Dreams TV, Vishal talked about the industry's reluctance to embrace meaningful storytelling and addressed the dissatisfaction shared by both actors and audiences. Vishal said, “Kuch bhi dikhate hai. Aap sarkari job ka dikhao na? Sarkari jobs ke naam pe IPS dikhaenge aur ek episode ke baad woh phir chula chaukha chai kar rahi hoti hai. Pagal ho kya. Kuch bhi.”

(They show anything. Why not show a government job? They show someone as an IPS officer in the name of government jobs, and after one episode, she’s back to making tea and snacks. Are they crazy?)
