Actor Ravi Dubey has been a part of showbiz for a full 15 year now, and happy with what he has achieved, having done work on every medium, be it television, films or the web.
Ask him though whether he has found there to be a hierarchy between actors from different mediums, TV and films specifically, and he says, When you talk about hierarchy, you talk about someone being above, and someone being below. You talk about a corporate ladder, that is a hierarchy, there will a general manager, assistant, one level then the next. I don’t think that’s what it is in the industry, it’s about creative potential and skill set.
However, the 36-year-old does confess that he has felt the way people look at film and TV actors differently. “There are various times in the industry, rampant preconceived notions, redundant perspectives have required change, I think. Many TV actors I would say, including myself, have been at the receiving end of this redundant perspective. So yes, perspective I would say … At some point I have been at the receiving end and faced it myself. I have felt uncomfortable at film narrations, and very respectfully excused myself from them. I felt that tunnel view existed.
