While his un­cle, ac­tor Anil Kapoor, has made quite a name for him­self in tele­vi­sion with a fic­tion show, ac­tor Arjun

Kapoor (above), who is also host­ing a tele­vi­sion show, says that films will al­ways re­main a pri­or­ity for him. “If there is a great fic­tion show, I will of course be open to it. But for me, films will al­ways re­main an in­her­ent love. Cin­ema al­lows you a lot more cre­ative and artis­tic free­dom than TV shows in that sense. So un­less a show comes up which is cin­e­matic in its treat­ment, I will stick to host­ing on TV,” he says.

The ac­tor, who will be seen host­ing the stunt-based re­al­ity show Kha­tron Ke Khi­ladi, says that he al­ways wanted to do some­thing more than just judg­ing a re­al­ity show. “I would like to be a host where I am in­volved with the show and not just judg­ing. That’s be­cause I don’t think that I am really ready to be a judge; I am just three years old in the pro­fes­sion,” he says. “I didn’t want to be the guy who is just sit­ting and giv­ing his com­ments and in­flu­enc­ing the vot­ers. I don’t think I am cut out for that yet,” adds the ac­tor, who was last seen in Te­var along­side ac­tor Son­akshi Sinha. He will next be seen in R Balki’s film with Ka­reena Kapoor Khan.
