After being a part of ‘Bigg Boss 8’, actor Puneet Issar has expressed his desire to be a part of dance reality show next.
Puneet Issar, 56, who already showed his dance moves on his latest TV appearance, said he is completely fit for the dance reality show like ‘Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa’.
“I have lost 17 kilos of weight on ‘Bigg Boss’ and have to shed 10 more kgs. I have proved myself as an actor and now, I want to show my fans that I am a good dancer too by participating on a dance reality show. I have already given a glimpse of my dancing skills during my stint on the show,” Puneet Issar told PTI in an interview.
The actor, most famous for his role as Duryodhana in the TV adaptation of the ‘Mahabharata’, said he is also writing two films. “I will get back to my work soon. I am currently writing two films,” he said.
Puneet, who could not make it to the Colors show’s new extension ‘Bigg Boss Halla Bol’, wished he could be there. “I wish I could be there because I am one of the most physically and mentally fit contestant. It’s really unfair that the new challengers also have the chances of winning the show. If I could be there I would have given them a run for their money,” he said.
Puneet, however, said he is happy that he is evicted from the show after staying there till the end as none of the above 50-year-old contestants have stayed in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house for more than four weeks.
“I think it’s a record on the show. None of the above 50 contestants stayed on the show for such a long time, Moreover, I had a grand exit and all my co-contestants gave me immense respect, which was a big thing for me,” he said.
The ‘Border’ actor credited his wife Deepali Issar for his career more than three decades. “I am what today is all for my wife. She has been my strength through out. She made me a calm and composed person,” he added.
