Mumbai, Nov 30 (IANS) While admitting that theatre, TV and cinema have their own respective importance, actor-filmmaker Pankaj Kapoor says that compared to the stage, the scope of television and movies is vast.

“I feel all the three mediums have their own importance. According to our needs, we should use the best possible medium for a better, powerful and effective impact. In fact, I feel we should use each of these mediums to reach out to the audience keeping in mind our subject,” said Pankaj at the premiere of “Land Gold Women”, a film that deals with honour killing.

Pankaj, who made a name after working in TV series “Karamchand”, has also worked in films like “Maqbool” and “Blue Umbrella” and acted in plays too.

“Through theatre, we are able to reach lesser number of people, but we are able to have a one-on-one rapport with the audience. The reach of television and the scope of cinema is very vast. So, if we use all of these effectively, we will be able to spread our message to a larger number of people,” said the actor who recently directed “Mausam”.

Directed by Avantika Hari, “Land Gold Women” has won accolades including a national award for the best feature film in English.

Featuring Narinder Samra and Neelam Parmar, the film is slated for Friday release and has been entirely shot in Britain.
