Doing TV a ‘very selfish motive’ for Arjun Kapoor

Mumbai, Jan 31 (IANS) Actor Arjun Kapoor, who made his small screen debut as a host of reality TV show “Khatron Ke Khiladi – Kabhi Peeda Kabhi Keeda”, says he has a “selfish motive” behind joining the television show.

“Maybe, people might like my work in TV and would love to watch my films in future. Maybe, after this, I can get more people to watch my films, so doing TV is a very selfish motive,” Arjun told reporters here.

The “Ishaqzaade” actor also said that he “doesn’t understand the economics and dynamics of TV”.
“I am more of a cinema goer… As an actor I know TV provides you an opportunity to connect with so many people,” he added.
“I am proud of Salman Khan – we all know he is doing really well. But TV is a medium where nobody can teach you, it’s all about your personality,” Arjun said.
He also spoke about the differences between acting and hosting shows.
“With acting you can understand the process, but when it comes to hosting, there is no character, no dialogue or scripts. It’s pure improvisation and at the same time you have to connect with the audience,” the “Aurangzeb” actor said.
“Khatron Ke Khiladi”, an adaptation of the American television show “Fear Factor” which features celebrity contestants facing their fears, will this year be shot extensively in Argentina.
Featuring 14 contestants, the show went on air on Saturday. It will be aired every Saturday and Sunday.
On the silver screen, Arjun will be seen playing a house husband in R. Balki’s upcoming film “Ki and Ka”. The film also features actress Kareena Kapoor Khan.
