- When a reporter asked her what she dislikes about her job, she said
I don’t like about our profession is TRPs. While our channel does not take TRPs that seriously, the industry as a whole tends to measure success or failure in terms of ratings. That is why our industry avoids producing informative shows that require more intense engagement from viewers. Moreover, it has also forced many channels to move towards tabloid-style programming.”
