No TV for Saif

Three of Bollywood’s famous Khans — Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir — have already had a taste of the small screen, but Saif Ali Khan is happy being distant from it.

Neither does he enjoy the drama content, nor does he find entertainment in reality TV. “I don’t know about acting on TV. I feel we need great content on TV. As of now, it is cornered by housewives, and I feel there’s a need for content for young boys. Our TV is not as good,” says Saif. Seen recently in his home production Go Goa Gone , Saif has a firm no-no to Indian TV reality shows as well.

“I can’t bear reality TV. Why would I want to watch all of that? I don’t like shows like Big Brother . I like drama,” he says.

Girish’s take

Actor Girish Taurani, who is making his acting debut with Prabhu Deva’s Ramaiya Vastavaiya , believes keeping the audience happy will help him tread the right direction in his career. “All my energy is invested here. In future, whatever work I do, my intention will be to do good work,” Girish says.
