Tele­vi­sion ac­tor Karan Tacker (left), who has been seen in shows such as Love Ne Mila Di Jodi and Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, says that he is en­joy­ing his break from fic­tion on TV. The 29-year-old says that this time off from the genre is re­quired to re­cu­per­ate.

“I had been work­ing non-stop on these shows and I felt that it was cru­cial for me to take a cre­ative break. That’s why I started with re­al­ity shows. I needed a break to get re­freshed. Of course, this break was not con­scious, I was gen­uinely not of­fered roles that ex­cited me,” he says.

Tacker, who’s cur­rently host­ing a singing re­al­ity show, says that he let go of many of­fers in or­der to choose this one. “I am very par­ticu- lar about the shows that I do. I chose this show af­ter say­ing no to many more. I’ve al­ways wanted to do some­thing new with ev­ery show, and that’s ex­actly what this show gave me. I make sure I get in­volved with the pre and post­pro­duc­tion of all its episodes,” he says.

Although the ac­tor has been a part of the in­dus­try for more than five years now, he feels that he has a long way to go.
