True Lies

After his intense performance in Aamir last year,everybody was sure that Rajeev Khandelwal will never return to the small screen.

After his intense performance in Aamir last year,everybody was sure that Rajeev Khandelwal will never return to the small screen. The actor who had shot into the limelight as Sujal from the serial Kahin Toh Hoga was now clearly on to bigger things. But,Khandelwal now resurfaces in another TV role — this time as a host of a reality show Sach Ka Saamna,the Hindi version of the foreign hit programme called The Moment of Truth.

“I agreed to do TV,only because it was a reality show,” explains Khandelwal. Sach Ka Saamna airs on Star Plus from July 15. “In the show,participants are put through a polygraph test and based on their responses proceed to win the Rs one crore cash prize. While quizzing the contestants I can see them going through what I did while playing the character of Aamir a year ago. Aamir was put through intense questioning because of his religion,” says the 30-something actor on his visit to Delhi.

He adds that he has spent most of last year shooting for his next,Peter Gaya Kaam Se,in Goa and Mumbai. Directed by a debutant British filmmaker John Owen,the film will see Khandelwal as a taxi driver in Goa who decides to quit his job until a girl walks into his life and changes his destiny. “This is a more romantic and bindaas role and it gives me a change to overcome my inhibitions of doing romantic roles,” he explains. The film releases later this year. “There is also Saurabh Narang’s Return Gift after that,” adds Khandelwal. “I still have to find my comfort level as an actor in Bollywood.” Until then,there’s always TV.
