    I am a big fan of Sarabhais...but I disagree that there hasn't ever been a good show besides this in India. I can vouch for the fact that regionally in Marathi, malyalam, Telugu...many beautiful films and shows are being made with mind-blowing writing and acting.

    You are absolutely right since I hail from Telugu states we have experienced same from Etv jabardast etc shows Zee TV shows in Telugu is ot comedy its valgur and cheap but unfortunately the public is watching, youth is watching so their taste is that today's public demands since their .mind is inclined to vulgarity.

    If scripting has become better than how quality is degrading . She said now she is getting roles she wanted to act in young age . Her thoughts sounds lil contradictory 😊

    We Indians talk a lot about culture, casteism, heritage n blah blah but we hardly think in terms of Humanity...!!

    True....moreover the sense of humour of common crowd in India is pathetic....for a good sense of humour one need to hold on with rational thinking which really is a missing trait in Indian personality...!!

    I agree with her. What passes for mainstream comedy IS pretty cringe. Most of my favourite Indian comedians do skits and post them online or have channels on YouTube... they're seldom picked up by big names in Bollywood or even appear on TV really...
