He also said “You always approach a much-loved literary character with trepidation. Because I know I’m not making the movie I have in my head as a reader of these books, let alone everyone else who comes to it with their expectations … I’m not perfect casting in everyone’s eyes.”He added “And on top of that, there’s my own criticism, which is probably sharper than anyone would ever suspect. I’m my own worst critic, I really am. It’s both a godsend and a curse.”

Benedict Cumberbatch said he wants to be part of something where he can be set aside to judge, said ”It’s different when you’ve got a producer’s hat on. If you’re front and centre, that’s really hard. I’m excited about the moment when I’m not in something and I can look at it with more distance, but it’s very peculiar. It’s always horrible – the way you look, the way you do things. It’s just horrible. Trust me, the internet’s full of hate but it’s nothing compared to the self-critic in your head for brutality. I’ve said it all before they have.”

Biswa Kalyan has shared that every new show teaches one about the world and how the person is as well. According to him, doing Comicstaan was a great experience. He said everybody secretly judges comedy but the challenge was to do it in the public where one’s opinion really matters. He shared that they can laugh at times but ultimately they have to rate it which required a lot of introspection. He has said  “Every new show teaches you a lot – about the world and who you are. Doing Comicstaan was a great experience completely. We all secretly judge comedy, but it was a challenge to do it publicly as your opinions really matter. You can laugh but to come down to a number and rate an act, it needed a lot of introspection.”

Currently, I do not have the bandwidth to do TV but it’s a great platform for many things, for example, live cricket commentary.
