Actor Dakssh Ajit Singh believes the proverbial gap between the movie and television industries, which has often prevented the filtration of talent, has been correctively diminishing over the years.
Recalling the early part of his 15-year-long acting career, he says, “I was content with modelling gigs when I was offered a TV show. Fortunately, my character was much lauded by the audience. I felt as if things will be alright from that point on and therefore, I started trying to bag roles in movies. However, like several other actors, I was also labelled as a TV actor by a few makers and casting people and was on stand-by for them.”
He adds, “Filmmakers would tell me — aap TV se ho, mushkil hai. If, at all, I landed a role, there was always the fear of losing it due to groupism and uncertainty. This was despite my doing some realy good roles during my career in the TV industry. Somehow, I was unable to cash in on the praise I was getting for my TV roles. It took me four years to break the jinx.”
The actor shot to fame with TV shows like Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak and Laado-2. Singh has also dabbled in penning lyrics for shows and Punjabi videos. When asked about OTT platforms, Singh said, “OTTs are giving several good actors their due. Before the web revolution, many good actors, artistes, and technicians had negligible or no work. Thankfully, OTT happened and took the entertainment industry by storm. While the pandemic was disruptive for all of us, a number of makers, actors, and technicians achieved success during the time when the consumption of OTT content skyrocketed. I am also among those actors.”
Singh says he is currently enjoying his new-found success and is elated with the kind of work coming his way. “Some roles change the course of your career, my character Laadi from the series CAT is surely up there. The show has been a game-changer for me. It gave me better control over my career. I am glad that my hard work has been rewarded. The series took time to release but it was able to win hearts. Next, I’ll be seen in a multilingual film that has a huge canvas, along with a series titled Gangs of NCR and another project Brown Boys in my kitty,” shares the actor.

Pathaan opened on Wednesday with domestic collections of ₹57, becoming the highest Bollywood opening film in history. It went on to cross ₹100 crore on day 2, Thursday and a Republic Day holiday. Needless to say, the film had the highest collections for a Bollywood film on day 2.
According to Boxofficeindia.com, Pathaan collected at least ₹70 crore in the Hindi and could be higher when the final numbers come. This would take its two-day collections to around ₹127 crore, behind only the two dubbed films KGF 2 and Baahubali – The Conclusion. The report stated: “There is no film which has even got close to 70 crore nett with the 50 crore nett mark being breached a couple of times on the first day.”
On Thursday night, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the day 2 collections at three major national chains including INOX, Cinepolis and PVR. He tweeted, “#Pathaan at *national chains*… Day 2… Update: 10.10 pm. #PVR: 13.75 cr #INOX: 11.65 cr #Cinepolis 6.20 cr Total: ₹ 31.60 cr UNSTOPPABLE. Note: #Pathaan *entire Day 1* at *national chains* was ₹ 27.08 cr.”
The Hindustan Times review of the film read: “Pathaan is your true-blue commercial, masala entertainer that’s not trying to send across any message or be a social commentary on the current state of affairs in the country. It’s fun, non-fussy and fantastic at the same time.”
As soon as the film released on Wednesday, midnight shows were also added to meet the unprecedented demand across the country. The film released on 8000 screens across the globe, with 2500 screens abroad. It may go on to make many more new records in the coming weekend.
Why Arden Cho Has “No Regrets” Turning Down Teen Wolf Movie
Arden Cho is moving onward and upward.
The actress, who appeared on three seasons of MTV’s Teen Wolf as Kira Yukimura from 2014 to 2016, does not appear in Teen Wolf: The Movie, which was released Jan. 26 on Paramount+, leaving some fans to question her whereabouts.
After a fan on Twitter suggested that the release date was likely a difficult moment for Arden, writing in part, “It’s probably a bit of a rough time for her, and she deserves so much better,” Arden responded and insisted she was doing just fine, thank you.
“Don’t worry babies, thanks for your support,” Arden tweeted Jan. 26. “Looking forward to better in 2023! Don’t be scared to walk away or turn down an opportunity if you know it’s not fair and it won’t make you happy! You deserve better don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! Love you all, no regrets!”
In a May 2022 interview with The Cut, Arden revealed she turned down the role in the movie after finding out she was allegedly paid half of what her female co-stars were earning per episode.
At the time, E! News reached out to MTV and Paramount+ for comment and didn’t hear back.
