Mumbai: Bollywood veteran actor Suniel Shetty feels that television somehow brings out your actual personality and throws it out in front of the people and that the small screen would get the actors into each house.
Suniel was last seen on the silver screen in the 2014 film “Desi Kattey”. In the television space he features in &TV’s reality show “India’s Asli Champion…Hai Dum” as the host.
While talking to the media over phone when asked why did he choose to make a comeback to showbiz with television, the actor went on to say: “Because the small screen would get me into every house. That is what the small screen has done. It has given me a newer audience… Mr. Amitabh Bachchan changed the face of television with ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ and then Salman Khan, being a superstar, did TV with ‘Dus Ka Dum’… People got to know the real Salman Khan.”
The 55-year-old, who has launched a gym called SMAAASH Shivfit in collaboration with celebrity crossfit expert Shivoham, said the small screen brings out the real personality of an actor.
“Television somehow brings out your actual personality and throws it out in front of the people because you are playing yourself. You are not playing any character and I think that is what ‘India’s Asli Champion… Hai Dum’ has done for me. It has given me a newer audience and following that probably I never had before,” he added.
