Actor Arjun Bijlani, who will be seen in the ninth season of the dancing reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, feels the gap between Bollywood and the TV industry is reducing.
He also believes actors who work on the small screen are very much capable of making it big in the film industry.
“There are so many films being made and there is so much talent in television… It’s a great thing because television actors are equally capable of doing great films as they are used to that kind of hard work,” Arjun told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
Having featured in popular TV shows like Left Right Left and Naagin, Arjun was seen in a movie titled Direct Ishq earlier this year.
On being asked what made him choose Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, he said: “The one and only reason to be on Jhalak… is to become a better dancer. I know that Jhalak… is the best reality show for dance as far as I’m concerned.”
“The choreographers work really hard. When you practice dance everyday, you start becoming good at it,” he added.
Season 9 of the reality show will premiere on July 30 on channel Colors, with actress Jacqueline Fernandez, filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer Ganesh Hegde as judges and contestents include Priyanka Shah, Poonam Shah, Gaurav Gera, Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi, Helly Shah, Shakti Arora, Arjun Bijlani, Sidhant Gupta, Surveen Chawla, Karishma Tanna, Nora Fatehi and Shantanu Maheshwari.
