Having tasted success with his first TV project, “Khatron Ke Khliladi”, actor Rajniesh Duggall says he is open to doing dance-based reality shows as he likes competing.
The actor, who made his Bollywood debut with the horror-drama “1920”, was the winner of “Khatron Ke Khiladi” season five.
“I am open to doing dance-based reality shows. I would love to do something on those lines as I like competing, it would be very interesting,” Rajniesh told PTI. (Read: Sunny Leone is grounded, professional: Rajniesh Duggall)
The actor said he was set to feature in celebrity dance show “Jhalak Dikhla Jaa”, but that clashed with his upcoming film “Direct Ishq”.
“I was about to go for ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ before ‘Direct Ishq’ came. I was in talks for both at the same time. But ‘Direct Ishq’ gave me a chance to do a different role, hence I opted out of ‘Jhalak…’. If the movie was not offering me anything new then I would have participated in ‘Jhalak…’,” he said.
The “Ek Paheli Leela” actor, however, does not see himself participating in a show like “Bigg Boss”. Read: ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ winner Rajniesh Duggall begins shooting for ‘Direct Ishq Ho Gaya’
“No, I cannot do that. I don’t think I will be able to take part in something like ‘Bigg Boss’… That’s a different ball game altogether.”
As of now, the actor is in talks with a production house for a mini-series as he prefers them over long running daily soaps. Read: Actor Rajniesh Duggall wins ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 5’, thanks fans for support
“I am in talks with a production house for a mini series. I am very open to doing a limited series because you do it like a film. Work for three months or six, then come out of it and do other things. But I cannot do the long, never ending shows at this point of my career as it will be very
difficult for me,” he said.
