Actor Mohan Kapoor is Zee V-P, inhouse programming

MUMBAI: Television actor Mohan Kapoor, last seen in Kaahin Kissii Roz and Kittie Party, has joined Zee Telefilms Ltd as vice-president, inhouse programming.

Kapoor told indiantelevision.com, "My job will involve designing software based for on-ground activities of the channel. My first focus is on the forthcoming Zee Cine Awards."

Kapoor's significant break in television was with a game show called Saap Seedi. On being asked why he decided to turn to programming, he said, "I was dissatisfied with the work I was getting on TV. It was far below my expectations and potentials. I am capable of much bigger things in life. Acting on television is not creative anymore; it is driven by factors like market research, channel interference, writer's ideas, director's vision."

According to Kapoor the problem with TV is that at the end of the day, an actor has performed everything but through someone else's vision. "An actor has become a mere puppet," he complained.



While Kapoor agreed that he has known Zee chairman Subhash Chandra Goel for many years now, he said, "But I underwent the entire selection procedure of their human resource tests, before I was finally approved for the post. Goel is a thorough professional and never grants favours."

Explaining his role as the Zee V-P in detail, Kapoor said, "I am looking at getting into the team which handles fiction and entertainment. I have told the higher-ups about it. According to them, it should materialise in the next six months."
