Mumbai: Actor Ranveer Singh feels that he is “cut out” for the medium of television and wants to make his debut on it soon after receiving numerous offers in the past year.
“I would have to agree that I’m cut out for television and I really do want to make my debut on television very soon. Unfortunately, ‘Bajirao…” shooting was going on throughout the year, almost 250 days this year we were shooting, so to take out time to host shows was not possible,” said Ranveer on the sets of the show “Crime Patrol” where he promoted his upcoming period drama, “Bajirao Mastani”.
“But hopefully in the coming year, its very much on the cards and it should happen very soon,” he added.
“It’s been a long time that I have been pursued to host various shows. In fact, half a dozen offers have come already only in the past year,” the actor revealed.
“Every time I would go for promotions for any film, all the producers used to say ‘you’re very cut out for television – in terms of your hosting capabilities and the kind of energy you have, you suit television very well’. I understand all too well the power and penetration of television,” he added.
Ranveer’s “AIB Roast” partner Arjun Kapoor recently ventured into television with the seventh season of “Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi”. Superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and actress Bipasha Basu have their shows going on currently.
“Bajirao Mastani” is Ranveer’s second film of 2015 after family-based “Dil Dhadakne Do”.
