Raj Babbar: Bigg Boss will give Arya's career a boost

You are returning to television after nearly a decade, has the medium evolved since?

Yes, I played Bharat in a few episodes of BR Chopra's Mahabharat. People have become more proficient since. I've always been a prolific actor, always felt the need to learn, evolve and entertain people, irrespective of whether it was through films, theatre or television. When Vipul came to me with the 24-episode Pukaar -Call For The Hero, I was moved by the delicate father-son relationship. So full of love... and conflict.

Could you relate to it because it's a lot like your relationship with your own sons, Arya and Prateik?

Probably. It's the story of every household. Rannvijay Singh plays my son in the show, an army officer. He has good intentions but the father believes that his approach is an incorrect one. Don't we all face this friction in our families?

What was your reaction to Arya entering the Bigg Boss house?

I was shocked! I learnt that he was doing the reality TV show just two days before he entered the house. I asked him if he'd be able to deal with all the chaos inside and he told me was fully prepared. Now, if I'm not shooting, I try to catch the show. He's playing the game well. He's honest and genuine, which is what I advised him to be. I guess the visibility on the show will give his career a boost.

Prateik's career too hasn't taken off, do you dole out advice to him too? Or make calls to producer friends?

Both Arya and Prateik know that they have to look out for themselves. out for themselves.You can't flaunt your clout to get anyone work.Prateik discusses work with me, we are in constant touch. He recently told me about a Bengali film he's doing. He's very passionate about his acting career, bahut josh hai usme. My children know their weaknesses and assets. I've taught them to read themselves well.

Why don't we see you in more films?

I've been shooting 10 hours a day for Pukaar for the last three months. I was thinking of taking a break but then Tevar came along. These young actors are so talented that you feel young working with them.

You lost from the Ghaziabad constituency by a huge margin in the last Lok Sabha elections. Is your political career over?

Politics was never my profession. It will always remain a social commitment, something I do for the betterment of the film industry. I'm still committed to certain issues which remain close to my heart.Am I done with politics? (Laughs) Let's just say I still have a long way to go, abhi to main jawaan hoon!

What career? Has the guy ever been part of something successful? I found Raj Babbar to be disgusting and I feel the same way about his son.

I think Arya would do well in the comedy genre...he should try his hand at it...he is definitely funny, both intentionally and unintentionally! ðŸ˜Š
Can't understand the ridicule for someone's career...it is just a game guys!

1970s was a great era in bollywood. The quality of movies, songs were 100 times better. The stories were better, heroes were men like, heroines were classy and graceful, the language was pure. I am a movie buff and I have seen many movies from 1970s and they were great

Do not make fun of older generations like that. They were great people. Just see Amitabh in Original Don and compare it to SRK in new Don. The difference is in Zameen Aasman.

Sure we love new generation movies as well however lets not make fun of earlier movies

Both have a role/

I have seen arya in a few punjabi films , which usually are romantic comedies and he does a decent job.

Bollywood isn't for him. He fits in punjabi genre well, although after watching big boss my opinion about him has changed and done a complete 360.

I thought he would have a gautam like perosnality. Punjabi blood usually has alot of pride associated with it whether or not it is earned. And I think arya tried to say the same thing the other day when he said blame my parents.
