TV doesn't give as much liberty as films: designer Neerushaa

Mumbai, May 24 (IANS) Costume designer Neerushaa, who has been designing for the television industry for the last 12 years, talks about lack of freedom as they have to "go though many people" and admits it is "much harder" to work for TV projects.

"TV doesn't give you freedom. It is your aura and how you want to present yourself that matters. I have an image in the industry, so people understand that if I will create something, it will be good. I will not say they have blind faith in me as people change and new people come," Neerushaa told IANS.

She added: "It is about how confident you are. TV doesn't give you as much liberty as films. Films have one person's vision. Here you have to go through so many people. TV is much harder. You have to consult everyone. When I create a costume, I have to get it approved by 25 is a tough job."

She has designed for shows like "Mahadev", "Hatim", "Maharana Pratap", "Shubh Vivah", "Kuchh Toh Log Kahenge", "Jamuna paar", and "Veer Shivaji" and tries to improve with each project.

"All my shows are better than my earlier ones. I did 'Maharana Pratap' pilot two years back. It took time to go on air. 'Mahadev' is on air, but after this if I will do a mythological, everyone's expectation will be much higher. I will have to create something with much more grandeur and royalty," she said.

Talking about her future plans, she said she has many shows in the pipeline and added: "One or two costume dramas will also change the TV scene in India."
