Prachi Desai on evolving content landscape
Reflecting on the influence of television shows on women's perspectives, Prachi Desai shared her thoughts on the evolving content landscape. While acknowledging the regressive nature of certain TV content, she emphasised the positive impact of shows that provided valuable life lessons and shaped the outlook of many women.
She said, “Growing up I watched some beautiful shows on television. They really kind of shaped a lot of women’s outlook towards life. Our mums have been watching beautiful shows and it’s amazing. So I think that reducing it down to something may not be right. But it feels rather unfortunate that television went down a route where there was content that was or which still is very regressive that doesn’t serve a purpose in today’s time."
She added, "I don’t think it kind of helps elevate anyone’s life in a sense. Entertainment, I guess a lot of people choose that is entertaining to them. So that is different. But I think the kind of life value, life lessons that we got, that I miss in TV content for sure."
Prachi Desai expressed gratitude for Kasamh Se
She expressed gratitude for her experience on Kasamh Se, considering it a fortunate time when the show's cast is still remembered even years later. She highlighted the uniqueness of their storyline, focusing on a younger girl-older man love story without succumbing to typical kitchen politics, making their show stand out.
She said, “For the show that I was a part of, I feel incredibly fortunate. It was a time when all of us are still remembered for it. I think that happened for a couple of years when people who were on shows at the time, they are all still remembered, that’s priceless. And I think my show was different also, it was a younger girl, an older man love story. We did not have kitchen politics going on the show. Of course we had an amazing antagonist Ashwini Kalsekar who was doing everything she could to make everything wrong. But it had to be a story about a family, a little world of theirs. And I still feel we were a little different for sure.”
