Baswana (right), who made his de­but in the tele­vi­sion in­dus­try with Kuchh Jhuki Palkein (2002), says that TV has al­ways kept him on his toes. While tele­vi­sion ac­tors are known to make a con­sid­er­able amount of money, San­deep says that the con­stant ne­go­ti­a­tion of re­mu­ner­a­tion of­ten wears him out. “It is not easy to live and pro­vide for in Bom­bay. If your last show has done well, then you have to in­sist on the price you want and if it has been a while since your last ap­pear­ance, then you need to ne­go­ti­ate. You can never get com­fort­able. You al­ways have to weigh the pros and cons and be smart,” he says.

San­deep, who has just fin­ished his stint in an on­go­ing fic­tion show, says he does not want to be a part of re­al­ity show. “I have never done re­al­ity shows and I hope I never have to be a part of one. I came to Bom­bay to act out char­ac­ters, not be my­self in shows,” he says, adding, “I am not com­fort­able talk­ing about my per­sonal life on screen. I don’t think I want to put that part of my life in front of so many peo­ple. Also, half of these shows are scripted.”
