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."
