Rajeev's truth and lie moment in 'Table No. 21'

Mumbai, Nov 23 (IANS) Actor Rajeev Khandelwal, who hosted the popular "Sach Ka Saamna" show, will now be seen playing a similar truth−and−lie game in the forthcoming film "Table No. 21". He admits he got a taste of his own medicine.

"It was tough to sit on the seat. When I used to host that show, I always used to say that it is not easy to sit on that chair. It was my first−hand experience to sit on the chair and hats off to those who came on my show and sat in front of me and faced those questions," the 37−year−old said here Thursday at the first look launch of the film.

The small screen's heartthrob, thanks to his popular show "Kahiin Toh Hoga", has mostly done off−beat films like "Aamir", "Shaitaan" and "Soundtrack".

"Table No. 21" also stars Paresh Rawal and Tena Desae and is slated for a Jan 4 release next year.

Only scripts with a soul and sensibility inspire him and good scripts make an actor's job much easier, he said.

"'Aamir' was a wonderful script, so is this. So I like great scripts. I like scripts which have a soul, some kind of sensibility. An actor's work becomes a lot easier if the script is good, you are not lost in the film...I also attempted 'Will You Marry Me', it didn't work," Rajeev said.

"But I think it's more of the script. As Pareshji said, you'll understand what the film is about after you see it. I am sure once you walk out of the cinema hall, you'll say it was a good script and film," he added.
