Fans of Naamkaran hunk Zain Imam can see him next in Crashh, a web-series that will come on ALT Balaji. The show is about four siblings who lose their parents in a car crash and how life takes them in different routes. It is an emotional story. The series is being directed by Kushal Zaveri. The director is known for his fab work on TV with shows like Pavitra Rishta, Ishq Main Marjawan and Gumrah under his belt. This is Kushal Zaveri’s first show for the web. He tells us, “I have a long association with Ekta Kapoor. She called me for a narration. The show is very close to her heart. She has given her inputs for many scenes. She has ideated a lot for the show. It is her conviction, which I am executing.”
The show stars Zain Imam, Anushka Sen, Rohan Mehra and Aditi Sharma. The director is all praise for Zain. He tells us, “He is a very good guy and actor. Zain is very chilled-out. He has no airs or tantrums. He did the workshops and is always trying to deliver his best. Zain will stretch himself to get better. In fact, all the actors are good. The energy on the sets was a very positive one. If three actors in a scene are doing well, automatically the others start performing.” Emotional shows are Kushal’s forte. “This show is all about performances. We have not invested much on the technical side. The actors have brought out the emotions really well,” he says.
The director also points out that like actors even directors get stereotyped in the industry. “It is tough for a director of TV shows to get a web show. But people at ALT Balaji know I can deliver. I have done youth shows in the past and the content was similar to what we see on OTT. There is nothing wrong is being a TV director, but the reach of a web show is worldwide. To direct OTT shows one needs to built a resume of at least two or three shows. Now, when people see TV shows on your resume, they feel you are unsuitable for OTT. This kind of stereotyping exists even for makers and technicians,” he states.
Kushal Zaveri who has been part of the industry says he is glad to see how TV stars are enjoying popularity on social media. “TV actors work the hardest amongst all. They work 18-20 hours a day. It takes an immense toll on their physical and mental health. I am glad to see that social media is giving them immense recognition and financial benefits,” he says.
