Pune, January 10, 2020: “Television programs should be family-oriented and family members from all age groups should be able to sit together and watch the soaps. Even crime thrillers need to be transformed into watchable series and for that, the writers have to become sensitive and raw and come up with new thoughts. To become a good story-teller, one has to merge entertainment with reality but in an upright way,” said B.P. Singh, Chairman, FTII and Director of the popular TV series, CID at a press conference organized by Pune Film Foundation as a part of the 18th Pune International Film Foundation (PIFF) today at Deccan Rendezvous, Pune.

Dr. Jabbar Patel, Director, PIFF and the actors of the CID program including Shivaji Satam, Aditya Srivastava and Dayanand Shetty were present at the conference.

“Along with time, the society changes and so does the stories and the films. For filmmakers, whatever they learn through the camera and it is only through its lenses that you see the reality and life experiences. Camera becomes a part of life,” B.P. Singh added.

Speaking at the conference, Shivaji Satam said, “Working with experience people pays and makes your job easy. Every actor has their own style and character whether they are on stage or in films while facing the camera.”

Aditya Srivastava said, “The late theatre director and actor, Habib Tanvir used to tell me that ‘acting is a journey and not a destination.’ It does not matter whether you are a good or a bad actor, what matters is how much you offer.”

Dayanand Shetty said, “I come from a non-acting background and it was my destiny which got me here. CID series influenced our lives in many ways.”
