Tusshar may consider fiction shows on TV

Mumbai, Feb 3 (IANS) Bollywood actor Tusshar Kapoor says he won't mind starting a new trend by doing fiction shows on TV as long as it doesn't interfere with his movie assignments.

The mediums of TV and films seem to be converging into one, he feels.

"TV always needs films and vice-versa. So, I guess, the marriage (between the two mediums) is getting more intense with shows like this ('Nautanki: The Comedy Theatre') coming on screen," he said and added that he can consider fiction shows.

"No body has done that (fiction shows) yet. Let's see, maybe that will also start. If it is interesting and it doesn't come in the way of making films, then maybe I can think about it... maybe in sitcoms like 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' and 'Seinfeld'," he added.

Tusshar has now shifted his focus on the small screen, which gave his sister Ekta Kapoor huge success as a producer.

Seen as the judge of Colors' comedy show "Nautanki: The Comedy Theatre", which attempts to showcase Broadway theatre, he feels it can help him as an actor.

"You need to believe in comedy to enjoy it. So as a judge, even watching will help me. Plus, I will be able to reach out to so many homes through the medium of television."

"The spontaneity comes only in theatre and I enjoyed it a lot. Even films have that spontaneity, but then after re-takes it goes out," he added.

Son of yesteryear star Jeetendra, Tusshar featured in "Golmaal" movie series and also did not-so-successful films like "Jeena Sirf Merre Liye", "Good Boy, Bad Boy", and "Life Partner".

As far mistakes are concerned, the 36-year-old feels that they are park of life.

"If I had to change the past, I would still make mistakes. So if I think that if I can go back and not make the same mistakes, then I am sure I will make fresh mistakes. You can't avoid making mistakes because life is such that you can't predict it," he told IANS in an interview.

Tusshar doesn't have a fixed strategy regarding his films and likes to just go with the flow.

"There is no conscious effort to change. Some people feel if you do different things, it will show versatility and, while others feel that if you stick to one kind of films, you have a set image. But that's others' point of view. I don't go with any of this," he said.
