“I’m not leaving the show. TV was my first love and will always remain my first love,” he says. But that doesn’t mean he’s not working towards getting into films. “I have never said that I am leaving TV to do films, since it’s television that has helped me gain popularity. Shifting to films is adding to my resume, another way of entertaining my audience. In any field, everyone wants to move up in their career and it’s the same for me,” he explains.
But doesn’t it bother him that so many TV actors have had to return to television after not making it in Bollywood? “It does not bother me at all when TV stars don’t do well on screen since I only think about my personal career and I don’t get influenced by other people’s achievements or lack of it,” he adds. Guess that would put an end to all the rumours!
