Ac­tor Ashish Sharma (left), who was last seen in the TV show Ran­grasiya, says he does not want to par­tic­i­pate in re­al­ity shows as he thinks he can­not con­trib­ute to them.

“I am not a good catch for re­al­ity shows as I feel that I can’t add to the for­mat. I am a very bor­ing per­son and I am not cut out for such shows,” he says. “An­other thing which I want to stay away from are kitchen soaps. I don’t think I can sur­vive them,” adds Ashish.

The ac­tor, who is cur­rently seen on a mytho­log­i­cal show, says that he wanted to be a part of this show as it was a new genre for him. “I have not ex­plored this genre in the past. It is chal­leng­ing to be a part of th­ese shows. It took me six to seven months to prep for my role. I had to change my body type and hair style. As I am play­ing such an im­por­tant char­ac­ter, I have no room to make mis­takes. I need to be that im­mac­u­late and have really been work­ing on my­self,” he says.

Ashish, who has also been seen in TV shows such as Rab Se Sohna Isshq and Chan­dragupta Mau­rya, says that he is very choosy when it comes to roles. “I have al­ways tried to do some­thing new as I feel that by tak­ing up newer char­ac­ters, I get to ex­plore my per­son­al­ity as well. Af­ter my last show, I got a lot of of­fers, but noth­ing was ex­cit­ing enough and ev­ery­thing was sim­i­lar to what I had done be­fore. So when I got this show, I took it up im­me­di­ately as this was some­thing which I had not done be­fore,” he says.
