Jaaved Jaaferi feels the legacy his father, late Bollywood comic Jagdeep, created in his lifetime helped him and his brother Naved have a greater life. It has additionally helped Jaaved’s son Meezaan, who’s making an attempt to discover a foothold in Bollywood, perceive the worth of every thing. “After the partition when my father, as a little boy came to India with his mother, they lived on the footpath and slept hungry. He had no choice but to take whatever work came his way — incidentally it was an acting job, as a child artiste. He was good at it so he kept getting work, and gradually acting became the profession,” Jaaved remembers, talking to IANS.
He continues: “When we were born, even though we did not face poverty the way my father did, we understood the value of every basic thing of life — having meals of three times, a roof over our heads, going to school as children. So, our level of passion towards acting and compassion towards those who are not lucky to have the basics of daily life is, of a different level altogether.”
“Now my son Mezaan, who is also an actor, understands the value of everything. My father passed on his wisdom and values to us and his grandson. It is our three generations of actors who have been acting and performing in the Indian film industry, so our passion, compassion and dedication towards performing art is almost like worship,” Jaaved provides.
Jaaved and Naved had been for lengthy related to the trendsetting dance present “Boogie Woogie”, one of many oldest actuality TV exhibits in India. If actuality tv as a style has modified for the reason that time “Boogie Woogie” had first aired in 1996, Jaaved feels it’s all part of evolution in popular culture.
“I think evolution is only natural with technology, and TV, cinema and our overall entertainment industry is also a part of that. Reality shows on TV becoming a prominent genre happened because of that. When we started our journey on TV with non-fiction shows, the concept of reality shows — where kids are invited to showcase their talent and based on that their talent was recognised — was not there on Indian TV. So, when we started ‘Boogie Boogie’, it was an original show. We did not have any reference point and we were not copying any show from the western television. I think back then, even in American or British television, there was no show exactly like ours. It was an original concept,” he says.
Jaaved will subsequent be heard as a humorous commentator within the upcoming “Lava Ka Dhaava” on Netflix from May 5.
