Amol Palekar to make an Appearance on the Small Screen
After Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor debuted on small screen, actor-turned-filmmaker Amol Palekar is all set to walk on the same pathway. His fans will soon see him in Life Ok's show Roshni... Ek Nayi Ummid. The medical drama is based on the backdrop of clash of ideologies within the family.

Palekar who is known for his good acting and film-making skills during his acting career, gave hits like Gol Maal (1979), Chitchor, Chhoti si Baat, Baton Baton Mein etc. Later, he switched to filmmaking and came up with great movies like Paheli, Quest and Dhoosra. Apparently, it was not acting but filmmaking which interested him more and after establishing himself as an actor in the industry, he chose to become a filmmaker. However, he never closed the doors for any acting offers and has decided to make a come back on the small screen almost two decades later.

Interestingly, the working schedule of small screen and Bollywood industry is pretty different and Palekar is well aware of it too. While talking to one media person, he himself accepted it, "I heard horror stories about television scenario from my collegaues and particularly daily soaps, how they shoot, how people have to work round the clock." The actor also claimed that he never kept himself away from any acting offers during his filmmaking career and was waiting for good acting offers. The actor is known for being choosy and always worked in the good projects. He is one of those actors who always stand on their his words, and if the relative project fails to shoot the right aim or turns into a cliche then he feels no hesitation to leave it in no time. Hopefully, Roshni... Ek Nayi Ummid will not back fire like others serials Diya aur Baati Hum, Balika Vadhu which ended up as boring daily soaps. 

He further added that how he doesn't find the word 'come-back' good and detests the concept, "I have a strong allergy to this word comeback. I don't think there is any kind of comeback. I was an actor by accident. So how that accident happened, that I have said several times", as repoted by media.

Being allergic to the come-back word, Palekar accepted how filmmaking was his first choice, but he become an actor accidently. Now, everyone is expecting that Amol Palekar will perform on the small screen in the same as he did in his Bollywood career.  

Presently, the small screen is full of stereotypical serials and Amol Palekar who finds the project interesting expected that Roshni... Ek Nayi Ummid will not fall in the same list.

Hope for the best and be ready to see the flamboyant actor like Amol Palekar on the small screen.
